Hidalgo, who announced her intention to run as a candidate for the Presidency of France a month ago and brings together only between 4 and 7 percent of voting intentions, according to polls, thanked the PS after knowing the results.

In an intervention in front of supporters, she stressed that “everyone has mobilized to prepare for change” and stated that she felt “proud” for “wearing the colors of the party”, which she had previously shown her support for.
