Anything is possible. That Sarkozy is not candidate in 2017. That Hollande is elected. Everything goes as planned. The French Republicain Party is weakened. It is ideollogically research and prepares his great trial. It will spare not one. Ministers, secretaries of state, elected councilors. Pawns of the quinquennium Sarkozy will all go there one by one. It is a mistake to only a few months the first round of municipal elections.
So what? The pretext is the understanding of the past to better understand the future. This is especially time ridiculous in the eyes of french again. They have a passion for this new episode of their favorite series in the making. There have been several seasons Cope vs. Fillon, forgiveness, cohesion, homosexual marriage and now : the iventory of quinquennium Sarkozy (2007-2012).
What should be the UMP to change this situation? We need clear policy favoring the Right and excluding any centrist attempt. The center is an other party : the UDI. You must repeat the RPR and UDF, otherwise there will be war in the party. The remainder of the centrist in UMP must leave the boat. Too many political sensitivities kills. It take positions on economic and social issues to allow activists to better understand the issues of the party. Former Prime Minister of Sarkozy, François Fillon, has understood.
We must stop talking on behalf of Nicolas Sarkozy. It should be explained, but this not the time. Forget it. Otherwise what shall we do when there is really gone? Find failure as we know it today.
The UMP has to change. It must find it’s place large French party Right. We need a credible and collective opposition to regain the trust of French and win in 2017. It is never too late. The last and the beginning.
