Anne Hidalgo proposes a reduction in the fuel tax

Anne Hidalgo wants to assert her difference, especially with environmentalists. While the Socialist Party (PS) presidential candidate has peaked at around 6% in the polls since the start of her campaign, she proposes a reduction in the fuel tax, saying she wants to insist on an ecology “Social”, in an interview published by Release, Tuesday 5 October.

“It’s probably a difference with the Greens. I believe that we cannot continue to ask the most fragile, the most modest or the middle classes to pay the high price for the ecological transition ”, explains the mayor of Paris, ensuring that it “Will not be done against those who, today, can no longer make ends meet, because rents, energy and fuels are increasing but not their wages”. How do you get there? “By lowering taxes on fuel prices”, answers Mme Hidalgo.

“Some will explain to me that it is not ecological. On the contrary: we need to hang up popular categories in this transition. Eleven million people need their cars every day to go to work. We must support them to turn the page on thermal vehicles from 2030. ”

Asked about her image as a candidate hostile to the car, Anne Hidalgo emphasizes that “Where there is no solution, we cannot tell people not to take their car”. “We must help our fellow citizens, if they can, to go to public transport. It means having a plan for the railways and reopening small lines. This means investing with regions and departments in clean equipment. Finally, this means massively supporting the French in the purchase of non-polluting vehicles. “

His candidacy lacks clarity, according to his detractors

According to a Harris Interactive poll for Challenges published Wednesday, October 6, in the first round, the leader of France rebellious Jean-Luc Mélenchon would obtain 11% of the vote, the ecologist Yannick Jadot 6% to 7%, the socialist Anne Hidalgo 6%, ahead of Arnaud Montebourg (2%) . This same poll indicates for the first time that the ultra-conservative polemicist Eric Zemmour, who has not declared himself a candidate, would be qualified for the second round of the presidential election with 17% to 18% of the voting intentions, behind Emmanuel Macron (24% at 27%). The putative candidate for the Elysee on a far right line is ahead in this survey the candidate RN Marine Le Pen (15 to 16%) in the different configurations tested, and distances the candidate from the right whoever he is.

Also, according to an IFOP-Fiducial survey for Le Figaro and LCI published Monday, October 4, Anne Hidalgo records, depending on the case, between 5.5% and 6% of the voting intentions in the presidential election. On the left, it is preceded by Yannick Jadot (8 to 9%) and by Jean-Luc Mélenchon (7 to 8%).

Despite everything, Anne Hidalgo still believes in it, convinced that she can convince more widely than these competitors on the left. But, for this, she must already secure the support of her political family. If the mayor of Lille, Martine Aubry, confirmed his support on Monday (“A woman environmentalist, recognized on this subject; and, above all, in its DNA, it has the social “), not all are of this opinion.

Asked by France Inter on Tuesday, Stéphane Le Foll, who maintains his candidacy within the PS, points to a lack of clarity on the part of the candidate. We set off on a campaign with a doubling of teachers’ salaries, then 110 km / h on the motorway, to then come back to it, tackle the mayor of Le Mans. Once formally invested by the Socialist Party Thursday, October 14, Anne Hidalgo will be at the center of a convention “For the social and ecological Republic” Saturday 23 October in Lille.
