In the presidential election, Michel Barnier fears electoral humiliation – “He is an outsider.”
As he campaigns for President of France, MICHEL BARNIER has been called a “outsider” by lawmaker Rupert Lowe.
Michel Barnier is “an outsider” in the eyes of the French public, according to Rupert Lowe. It happened after the EU’s former chief Brexit negotiator attempted to run for president of France as a member of the French Republican Party.
Rupert Lowe remarked on TalkRadio that he would support Michel Barnier as the future French president over Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen.
“I think Michel Barnier is the best of all three of them, and if I had to choose one, I would do business with him,” he stated.
“Interesting,” said the host, Richard Tice. As a result, you say it’s doubtful.
“I mean, getting elected is a difficult process.
“How likely is it that he will actually win his party’s primary?”
“I believe pretty slim, Richard,” Mr Lowe replied.
“He’ll have to win the Republican Party’s support, which I believe is doubtful.
“I mean, he’s from the fringes of society.
On the 1992 Albertville Olympics, he made his name.”
“And I believe he is basically a wonderful man, but there is so much hypocrisy and contradiction here,” he continued.
“How well-known is Rupert as a public figure in France, do you think?” remarked Richard Tice.
“He is an outsider,” Mr Lowe responded.
“I believe he is a long shot for the nomination.”

“I’ve resolved to run and be the president of a France that is reconciled with itself, to respect the French and to make France respected,” Michel Barnier told TFI last week.
“I’ve learned something vital for our country, and that is that we succeed when we know how to respect individuals and bring them together around the same table.”
Many people in France, including those outside of elite circles and the Brussels bubble, are unaware of Barnier.
The elections are scheduled for April 2022.
