Raffarin quitte la politique pour créer une ONG internationale

Jean-Pierre Raffarin le 9 mai 2017 à Paris

L'ancien Premier ministre et sénateur de la Vienne (Les Républicains), Jean-Pierre Raffarin a annoncé qu'il quitterait la vie politique en octobre prochain afin de se consacrer à "d'autres missions". Pour celui qui est encore une figure de la droite et du centre, " le moment est venu de (se) retirer de la vie politique élective".

Dans une tribune de presse, l'ancien Premier ministre de Jacques Chirac a ainsi annoncé la création de l'ONG Leaders for Peace, "une ONG internationale pour alerter contre les risques de guerre qui nous menacent".

Alors que les nouveaux députés devaient faire leur entrée à l'Assemblée nationale ce mardi après-midi, l'ancien Premier ministre Manuel Valls a fait savoir qu'il quittait le Parti socialiste, tandis que Jean-Pierre Raffarin, lui aussi ex-chef du gouvernement, a annoncé qu'il mettait fin à sa longue carrière "élective".

"Ce n'est pas un retrait de la vie politique". "C'est quelqu'un qui sait ouvrir les portes", a-t-il dit en référence à ses fonctions passées de représentant des intérêts économiques français en Chine et en Algérie.

While working as defense minister, he oversaw the Saudi-led military coalition against the Houthi rebels from Yemen. He ordered the reinstatement of all civil service benefits cut as part of an austerity package.

Après avoir soutenu Alain Juppé lors de la primaire de la droite, M. Raffarin s'était posé au sein des Républicains comme l'un des principaux défenseurs d'une ligne bienveillante à l'égard d'Emmanuel Macron, popularisant le terme de "constructifs" duquel se sont baptisés la vingtaine d'élus LR ayant rejoint l'UDI au sein d'un groupe parlementaire.

Jean-Pierre Raffarin raccroche le costume!

" On regrette toujours de ne pas pouvoir faire plus mais l'action concrète, les projets inaugurés, les emplois créés, et les rencontres vécues consolent de bien des insatisfactions".
