Five months before the presidential election in France, the support of Emmanuel Macron begins to maneuver.
This Monday, November 29 in the evening is launched at the Mutualité in Paris “
», The common house of the presidential majority in the presence of relatives and allies of the Head of State, in particular the Modem and the new party of Édouard Philippe.
The common house is the big building site that the macronists have been taking care of behind the scenes for several months.
Or, the creation of a structure that brings together all the support of
Emmanuel Macron for the elections
In this "house", there will be three main rooms: the Republic on the move - the party founded by Emmanuel Macron -, the Modem of François Bayrou and the brand
new party of former Prime Minister Édouard Philippe, Horizons
When the political world divides on all sides, we come together.
➡️Ensemble Citoyens !, which will be launched tomorrow, is the conjunction of all the forces of our presidential majority.
It is a coalition of convictions that we are carrying out here. @ Europe1 #EnsembleCitoyens pic.twitter.com/zS3bXdWC1x

The construction was not easy, because of the enmities between some and different wills.
Finally, this common house "
will not be quite a party, but it will be more than a simple banner
", summarizes one of its craftsmen.
Objectives of this project: first to unite the majority before the presidential battle.
But also to offer shelter to all those who would rally
, but who would not want to join a party.
And then last objective, and not the least, the macronists want to agree to present a single candidate of the majority per constituency during the legislative elections.
This thanks to the creation of a joint investiture commission: it is at this moment that we will judge the solidity of this "house".
