LREM wanted to go fast. Alliance with Villani? Mounir Mahjoubi returns? Track Delphine Bürkli? So many hypotheses rejected in the end. It will be the Minister of Health Agnès Buzyn who will take the place of Benjamin Griveaux, who resigned Friday morning after the publication of videos of a pornographic nature. Agnès Buzyn had to be present on the lists for this election, in a place that remained to be defined. Here she is against Hidalgo and Dati, for a fight that could seem lost in advance.
