The campaign has barely started for Agnes Buzyn when she promises to be already strewn with pitfalls. This Monday, a journalist from Public Sénat noticed that the domain name buzyn2020.fr linked to Anne Hidalgo's page. The url was also bought Sunday at 5:59 p.m., just a few hours after the declaration of candidacy for the municipal elections of Paris by the former Minister of Health.
Did the @Anne_Hidalgo teams anticipate the blow? The domain name https://t.co/3GrVSkxA5R refers to the page ... of Anne Hidalgo. #Buzyn #Municipales #Paris- Fabien Recker (@fabrecker) February 17, 2020
When contacted, Anne Hidalgo's team denied being behind this cyber-activism. "I confirm to you that it is not at all us and it is completely independent of our will," we explain to 20 Minutes .
However, the domain name agnesbuzyn2020.fr was acquired Sunday evening around 8 p.m. but does not (yet?) Refer to the outgoing mayor's website. Not everything is done for the LREM candidate.
