Yesterday, this site gave the news that Valérie Pécresse was chosen as the candidate for the French Republican Party in the coming Presidential elections. What is interesting is that Valérie Pécresse is being described as the new Angela Merkel. this derives from the fact that she compared herself to Margaret Thatcher and Angela Merkel. There is a big chance that in the first turn of the French elections, she will be among the two that will be selected by the electorate for the second turn. In other words, she has a big chance of defeating Macron in the first turn of the French elections.
