While the Les Républicains (LR) party is looking for a president, Xavier Bertrand intends to create a new party associated with the right formation. The creation of this new movement, called us France, must be formalized during Meetings organized on 1 er October 2022 in Saint-Quentin (Aisne), fief of the former minister of Nicolas Sarkozy.

The future party claims its attachment to “French identity”, “authority” and “the value of effort and work”. In addition to Xavier Bertrand, who will assume the presidency of the movement, the latter will have as secretary general Bernard Deflesselles, former deputy LR des Bouches-du-Rhône.

The launch of this new movement shows, in any case, that Xavier Bertrand has not abandoned any national ambition. During the primary on the right of 2021, however, the president of the Hauts-de-France region affirmed that in the event of a defeat, he would leave the national political scene. “From now on, this is my region, in which I live, I live,” he also said after his failure.
