Europeans 2024: the Government in battle order behind Valérie Hayer

In an uncomfortable position in the polls, the majority is throwing all its strength into Valérie Hayer's European campaign. On the occasion of Europe Day, a large part of the Government is occupying the field.

The Government in battle order. One month before the European elections, the majority is looking for a way to get the campaign of its candidate Valérie Hayer off the ground. It must be said that the latest polls are not in favor of the MEP. Credited with 15% of voting intentions, Valérie Hayer today finds herself neck and neck with Raphaël Glucksmann, the head of the list of the Socialist Party-Place publique and his 14% of voting intentions. Jordan Bardella, for his part, continues to be in the lead, at more than 30% according to the latest polls.

In Matignon, the time for general mobilization has come. While this Thursday, May 9, is proclaimed Europe Day, all ministers are called to deploy on the territory and on social networks with a single slogan: the European Union. As head of Government, Gabriel Attal is also the first to go to the front. Traveling to Brittany this Thursday, the Matignon tenant must first go to Bréhan for an exchange with the French, before heading to Vannes. And Brittany is no coincidence in Gabriel's calendar for this long bridge weekend. “It is a European and humanist land, resolutely turned towards the future,” he told Télégramme on the sidelines of his visit.

For her part, Valérie Hayer, for her part, is traveling to Bordeaux. Accompanied by Thomas Cazenave, the Minister of Public Accounts, she will then travel to Corsica on May 10 and 11. “We have to make the right decisions as Europeans. We run the risk of giving the keys to the truck to the far right,” she explained on TF1.

In total, around twenty members of the Government will be on the ground for this Europe Day: Frédéric Valletoux (Health) in Mayotte, Bruno Le Maire (Economy) in Bayonne, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra (Sports) and Sabrina Agresti-Roubache (City) in Marseille, or even Marc Fesneau (Agriculture) in Loire-et-Cher.

The electoral battle is also taking place on social networks. Thus, all ministers were instructed to publish a visual in order to recall the record of the European Union in the lives of the French, reports BFMTV. Gabriel Attal, in the lead, in a post on

Finally, Emmanuel Macron, who also decided to get involved in Valérie Hayer's campaign, did not hesitate to share a video on his X account. "There is something important, it is to ask what Europe can do for us,” he explained.
