Last quote about Penelopegate

Edouard Lecerf
Macron's strength is that even if he isn't the first choice for the 50 per cent of the first-round voters whose preferred candidates were eliminated in the first round, he is still seen as acceptable by many of them, whereas Marine Le Pen isn't. That would left a reserve of voters whom she could mobilise for the second round but it didn't happen as the first-round turnout was high, at nearly 80 per cent. Only about one-third of those who voted for Fillon will be tempted to vote for Marine Le Pen in the second round. The rest will vote for Macron or abstain.feedback

François Fillon

Extremism can can only bring unhappiness and division to France. There is no other choice than to vote against the far right. I will vote for Emmanuel Macron. I consider it my duty to tell you this frankly. It is up to you to reflect on what is best for your country, and for your children.feedback

Marion Marechal-Le Pen

For fifteen years, there has not been a pro-sovereignty candidate in the second round of a presidential election.feedback

Thomas Joucla

I came here more out of curiosity than out of a feeling of disappointment. Fillon has called on us to vote for Macron in the second round, so we wanted to hear his speech.feedback

Daphne Atlani

It was a catastrophe. Our real questions were never answered. He has the experience. And I don't care that he paid his wife. They've all done that, and anyone in that position would do the same – it's just human nature.feedback

Laura Lili

Nowadays everything is made overseas. All we have are big franchises while French stores shut down. We're going to hit a crisis. He screwed it up. But everyone's done that. He's the best of all of them, for the future of France.feedback

Daphne Atlani

Being represented by Le Pen or Mélenchon, that's scary. I'm very frightened about the results.feedback

Laurence Azzéna-Gougon

We were worrying about of course the Front National, but I'm pretty confident that if François Fillon wins the first round ... he will win the second.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

I've seen the emptiness of our political system from the inside...I reject this system.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

I think we must once and for all have a spirit of responsibility at this extreme time and not give in to panic and not allow it to be exploited, which some might try to do.feedback

Matthieu Croissandeau

The French are unfortunately getting used to terror attacks on home soil and I don't think this latest one created the shock and awe that might have made a significant difference.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

What our attackers want is death, symbolism, to sow panic (and) to disturb a democratic process, which is the presidential election. I think we must one and all have a spirit of responsibility at this extreme time and not give in to panic and not allow it to be exploited, which some might try to do. I've heard Madame Le Pen saying again recently that with her in charge, certain attacks would have been avoided. There's no such thing as zero risk. Anyone who pretends (otherwise) is both irresponsible and deceitful.feedback

Marine Le Pen

We cannot afford to lose this war. But for the past ten years, left-wing and right-wing governments have done everything they can for us to lose it. We need the presidency which acts and protects us.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election! First of all, our condolences from our country to the people of France. Again, it's happening, it seems, I just saw this, I was walking in, so it's a terrible thing. It's a very, very terrible thing that's going on in the world today, but it looks like another terrorist attack and what can you say? It just never ends. We have to be strong and we have to be vigilant and I've been saying it for a long time.feedback

Vincent Juvyns - J.P. Morgan Asset Management

The official investiture of the new president will take place on the Sunday 14 May at the latest. In the case of Francois Fillon or Emmanuel Macron, they should in theory be able to form a rather stable government as they have a wide - direct or indirect - support in both houses. For Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Melenchon, it could be more challenging given there is low support in the lower and upper house and also because the legislative elections in June could oblige them to work with other political parties in their governments which would be less likely for Fillon or Macron.feedback

Marine Le Pen

This war is asymmetric and revolutionary. It is a war in which all the population, all the country is targeted – it is obviously a war we cannot lose. The Islamist, Salafist ideology has no right to be in France and should be banned. Preachers of hate should be expelled and their mosques closed.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

We must not give way to panic, nor in any way allow any attempt to manipulate these events. The terrorists want to destabilise the country … at a time when the French are deciding on their future. She won't be able to protect our citizens.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

A vigorous offensive will be taken to fight Islamic radicalisation, especially on the internet.feedback

François Fillon

I have been warning that we are confronting an Islamic totalitarianism: in other words, an ideology that is radical, organised and expansionist. I've not stopped warning the government and my compatriots about the breadth and depth of that totalitarianism whose goal is to destroy our civilisation and crush all enemies from south-east Asia right up to west Africa.feedback

Peter Boockvar - The Lindsey Group

We can actually celebrate a Fillon or a Macron victory because it would be a real change in complexion in terms of the business attitude in French politics.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Our condolences from our country to the people of France. It is happening again. It is a very, very terrible thing that's going on in the world today but it looks like another terrorist attack. What can you say? It just never ends. We have to be strong and we have to be vigilant -- and I have been saying it for a long time.feedback

François Fillon

In the fight against militant Islam, like on everything else, Emmanuel Macron stance's is blurry.feedback

François Fillon

It's not the media who decide the rhythm of the campaign, who decide the questions, who decide the campaign.feedback

François Fillon

I've a feeling we're going to rewrite the scripts the others have devised for us … We'll make history.feedback

Jean-Luc Mélenchon

I want people to know, for all of Europe to hear clearly, that this needs to change or it's not going to go on like this, it's not possible.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

This event serves as reminders that the terrorist threat is still very high on our territory.feedback

Nicolas Sarkozy

I worked five years with Francois Fillon, he was my prime minister, I know we can trust him.feedback

Marine Le Pen

We cannot fight the terrorism that weighs on our country without controlling our borders. Because they were delinquents, they would have been expelled from France.feedback

Christophe Castaner

It's tightening. Fillon could find himself in the second round if he mobilizes his base.feedback

Claude Angeli

If we had put the Fillon articles online, what would we have put in the print edition when it came out? It is proof that print still has a purpose and can earn its keep. If journalists are independent then so is the newspaper. We are an oppositional force, in other words we limit the stupidity and nonsense that you get from politicians and institutions.feedback

Eva Alain

Of course I will vote for whomever is not the extreme right. But if it's Fillon, it's impossible, and if it's Macron, it's difficult.feedback

François Fillon

There is still everything to play for. The days ahead of us will be decisive.feedback

François Fillon

They're doing everything they can to discourage me. But, my friends, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.feedback

Philippe Poutou

When we workers are summoned by the police, we don't have worker's immunity. Sorry about that. There it is. Here we go.feedback

Philippe Poutou

Nothing but revelations. The more one digs, the more one smells corruption and cheating, and then, it's these fine folk who explain to us that we need rigor, austerity, and all the while dipping into the public purse.feedback

Philippe Poutou

And then we've got Le Pen, next to me, Le Pen, dipping into the public purse. It's not here, it's Europe, and now for somebody who is anti-European, the worst is that the National Front, which calls itself anti-system, it doesn't give a damn. It protects itself thanks to the laws of the system, thanks to parliamentary immunity, and so refuses to answer a police summons.feedback

Philippe Poutou

It's a bit surprising. We're not used to it. In the streets, it's very striking. People are saying bravo, thanks so much. We realize it's touched a lot of people. It's what people are thinking, but these things are almost never said to politicians' faces.feedback

François Fillon

We are in a world of competition where each defends its interests tooth and nail. We should do the same.feedback

Vincent Marcel

It's certainly no worse than under the Socialists. There are less homeless loitering in the town centre, we feel a little safer. They're all a bunch of bandits. I would have voted for Fillon, but he's under investigation, his wife, MPs, everyone around him.feedback

Anna Cabana

I don't think Philippe Poutou deserves any honours. He acted very disrespectfully.feedback

Nicolas Dupont-Aignan

Who can one believe you, Mr Fillon, when your government, and your entire political career, you have signed European treaties?feedback

Philippe Poutou

When you're summoned by police, you go. There is no workers' immunity.feedback

Marine Le Pen

Is this a (police) interrogation? I thought this was a debate but it looks like the prosecutors are here.feedback

François Fillon

If I had any doubt about my guilt, I wouldn't be a candidate. I provided a means to eliminate me from the presidential race. Prosecutors should take up this case. If they don't do so and if I am elected president, there will be a parliamentary commission of inquiry.feedback

François Fillon

We must avoid these fantasies. There is enough unwelcome interference in this electoral campaign to not need to go and seek some in Russia. We can consider it [Russia] an enemy and prepare a clash or adopt a second strategy to try and engage in a serious and frank dialogue to put in place conditions for peace in Europe.feedback

Simon Usherwood

Le Pen still looks constrained in her ability to turn an almost-certain entry to the second round of voting into an overall victory. The surge by Macron would seem to suggest that he would mop up a lot of votes in any case, even without those voting against Marine Le Pen. If, however, Fillon limps into the second round, then bets are off, as he's very compromised and many might feel they should give Le Pen a chance to effect the change she's talked so much about.feedback

François Fillon

There is enough unwelcome interference in this electoral campaign to not need to go and seek some in Russia. We're sufficiently capable ourselves. Today, it's a new cold war even though our priority is to defeat Islamic totalitarianism. We've always had a difficult relationship with Russia. It's a country that doesn't have the same democratic system as in the West so it's a country that is dangerous.feedback

Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière

I've never been close to one politician to serve my business life. I'm a true independent man.feedback

Maurice Levy

From day one Marc has been an entrepreneur. He's picked the right investments in areas that were mainly niche.feedback

Ezra Suleiman

Over the past two decades Marc has become the quintessential man of influence in France.feedback

Christopher Granville

One is the OPEC production restraint deal including with Russia in late November last year, which drove the oil price up to mid-$50 a barrel or higher. And secondly and much more interestingly, hopes for a geopolitical easing of tensions between Russia and the United States, and Europe, with both the election of Donald Trump in the United States and the European mood might become less hostile to Russia, and that hope was based in particular on the prospect back then of Francois Fillon would be the most likely winner of the French Presidential election.feedback

Mathieu Teachout

It's the one big message we're hearing in every town. The idea 'they're all the same, they're on the make' and so on. Especially after the Fillon affair.feedback

François Fillon

Those protests are an insult to democracy ... the more they protest, the more French voters will support me.feedback

Eric Cantona

Francois Fillon once suggested cancelling a match if people were disrespecting the national anthem. I suggest that we cancel the election when the candidates are disrespectful of morals and ethics.feedback

Francois Hollande

There's a level of dignity and responsibility to be respected and I think that Mr Fillon has fallen short.feedback

François Fillon

You have newspapers today which receive documents 48 hours after they were seized in searches, for example in my office in the National Assembly. Who gives them these documents? The government. I will go much further. I blame the president of the republic.feedback

François Fillon

Who is organising these? State services. And, oddly enough, the Socialist party, Mr Macron and Mr Hollande pounce on these pseudo-revelations.feedback

Joel Dreyfuss

The French presidential campaign switched into high gear this week with a sometimes-raucous American-style debate featuring the five top candidates. The three-and-a-half-hour marathon was the first televised debate ever held before the first round of voting in France’s two-step electoral process and drew nearly 11 million prime-time viewers, half of all TV-watchers.feedback

Francois Baroin

The state cannot force local authorities to reduce the workforce as proposed. I am telling Francois Fillon: 'Watch out. Danger ahead!feedback

Pierre Cornut-Gentille

Since Penelope Fillon's past activities on behalf of her husband were real, all the documents pertaining to this work are also unquestionably genuine. There's not the slightest forgery in this case.feedback

Marine Le Pen

I know you support the idea but a few years ago there were no burkinis on our beaches Mr. Macron. Mr Fillon, you are peddling a Project Fear, the same tactic was used before the Brexit and before the election of Donald Trump.feedback

Jean-Luc Mélenchon

I have to admire your brass neck when you say the campaign has been polluted by the corruption scandals some of us are implicated in. Well, I'm sorry, but not me, and I think I should remind the audience this concerns just two of us up here , Mr Fillon and Madame Le Pen, and the three others have nothing to do with that.feedback

Benoit Hamon

We can't tell François Fillon, Step down, be an example' and have the head of a ministry – what's more, a sovereign one – not apply this to himself.feedback

François Fillon

I have some flaws. Who hasn't? But I know how to run a small town, a region, a government.feedback

Marine Le Pen

I want to put an end to immigration – that's clear. That's called Project Fear, Mr Fillon. It was used before Brexit.feedback

François Fillon

There's only one thing that could prevent me from being candidate. If my honour was affected, if I were put under investigation.feedback

Kiril Bougartchev

She does whatever she likes with money she earns. If she wants to go on a holiday she goes on a holiday. If she wants to get married she gets married.feedback

François Fillon

Those who don't respect the laws of the Republic should not be allowed to run. There's no point in talking about authority when one's not beyond reproach. There is only one thing that exists in a democracy: it's the people's will. The French will choose.feedback

Raphaël Glucksmann

They've reached this point ... hooked nose, the alliance of capitalism and Bolsheviks (the red sickle and the cigar) ... Even the [far-right Front National] wouldn't dare.feedback

Luc Chatel

How far are they going to take this? Are they going to check whether his grandmother had a Russian loan, and if he declared it in his assets statement?feedback

François Fillon

I understand the anxiety this could have caused because it evokes the drawings of a dark period of our history and conveys an ideology I have always fought against. The political battle is tough, but it must stay dignified. I will not tolerate my party publishing caricatures that use the codes of antisemitic propaganda.feedback

Benjamin Griveaux

The use of terms and imagery that draw on antisemitic fantasy is extremely worrying for the quality of debate in the republic but also for the state of mind that prevails in certain [party] headquarters.feedback

François Fillon

I think about the words by Joan of Arc facing her judges, ignore, I ask you. I think of these words today. Ignore, ignore the attacks which are targeting me, ignore because like you, millions of French people, refuse to let their votes be pre-empted and confiscated.feedback

Alain Juppé

Francois Fillon… had a boulevard (to the presidency) in front of him. The instigation of judicial investigations against him and his defence based on a supposed plot and political assassination has brought him to a dead end.feedback

Alain Juppé

I don't intent to engage in partisan bargaining for positions. I'm not in a position today to achieve the required unity behind a unifying project. I confirm, once and for all, that I will not bid for French president.feedback

Francois Hollande

The far-right has never been so high in more than 30 years. But France won't cave in.feedback

François Fillon

Are we alone? The success of this demonstration shows that my legitimacy as a candidate remains very strong. I can unite (the party) for the campaign and for government… No one can prevent me now from being the candidate.feedback

François Fillon

I believe that my project is supported by a majority of voters from the Right and from the centre and that I demonstrated this today.feedback

François Fillon

The day I'm recognised as innocent by a judiciary that I have not lost faith in – even if I have reservations about their initial actions – my accusers who were too quick to point the finger will be ashamed of themselves.feedback

Marine Le Pen

It's not just a background noise, it's an absolute orchestra which only speaks about these judicial cases to the detriment once again of the depth of the political debate.feedback

Marine Le Pen

So I'm continuing to campaign, at times I get the impression that I'm the only one doing so.feedback

Penelope Fillon

He needed someone to carry out his tasks. If it hadn't been me, he would have paid someone else to do it, so we decided that it would be me.feedback

François Fillon

We shall show the strength of popular will. Hold firm! France deserves our courage!feedback

François Fillon

No one can stop me from being a candidate. I committed the first error in the past, in asking my wife to work for me. ... I shouldn't have done that. And I committed the second in hesitating about the way to talk about it.feedback

Francois Fillion

I committed the first error in the past, in asking my wife to work for me. ... I shouldn't have done that. And I committed the second in hesitating about the way to talk about it.feedback

François Fillon

They attack me everywhere and I must, in conscience, listen to you, this immense crowd pushing me on. But I must also ask myself about those who doubt and are abandoning the ship. They bear an immense responsibility, as do I.feedback

Penelope Fillon

I have become the target for everything, to denigrate me personally has saturated the news … Even if the accusations against me are unjust, revolting, being misused, I must apologise for having to defend my honour and that of my wife when for you, and for me, the most important thing is to defend our country.feedback

Pierre Banon

We are being extremely careful and we'll have a security cordon of 200 people.feedback

François Fillon

Elites are often more conservative and more prudent than the French people. Our main enemy is ourselves... our harmful tendency to ridicule our own country.feedback

François Fillon

Thank you. I've known better, and I will know better. I tell you with gravity, don't be fooled, don't let anyone rob you of your choice. I ask you to resist.feedback

François Fillon

This campaign is a strange battle. You are brave but you are being intimidated. They are attacking me, but what they are really trying to attack is our national recovery.feedback

Marine Le Pen

When (Fillon) declared that he would not be candidate if charged, I declared that this is an incoherent statement because in France, there is a principle named presumption of innocence.feedback

Virginie Calmels

The spectacle of this presidential campaign makes me sick. The violence of the public debate is unheard of.feedback

Francois Hollande

We can't have demonstrations in our country, in our Republic, that question our institutions, the work of the judiciary or of the police in the course of an inquiry.feedback

François Fillon

I have been singled out by the judicial system. It's as if I had to be brought down at all costs.feedback

Nadine Morano

And the far-left will come. That will result in dramatic images.feedback

Jerome Chartier

I've seen friends leave. In the toughest moments, you hope the sailors will pull the oars with the captain. I'm a sailor and I pull the oars with Captain Fillon.feedback

Nadine Morano

I'm among those who use their energy trying to convince Francois Fillon to step down. I'm worried that the French will not let us reach the second round.feedback

François Fillon

Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, the machine to grind me down with scoops and rumours has set itself going. But let me tell you, I have no intention of giving in.feedback

Georges Fenech

Unhappily, I am convinced that Francois Fillon is about to fall. It seems to me that today only he (Juppe), with all his experience, can carry the flame.feedback

François Fillon

It is indeed a political assassination. But through this disproportionate attack, without a known precedent, through the choice of this date, it's not only me they're assassinating, it's the presidential election.feedback

Franck Debeaupuis

It's part of French political life. It always has been.feedback

Franck Debeaupuis

To be handed preliminary charges is not proof of guilt. There were many others before him. In any case, he won't be convicted before the elections.feedback

François Fillon

I will not give up, I will not surrender, I will not withdraw. I will be in this until the bitter end, because it is not just me who is under threat, it is democracy itself. I am asking you to be with me. This is not about me, My rights or my innocence, it is about you.feedback

Bernard Debre

Well, 50 days ahead of (the election)? And by whom?feedback

Zach El Maataoui

The guy just wants power ... politicians are all scam artists.feedback

François Fillon

I remind you that we are in a state of emergency and yet the government is letting this happen. It is necessary that the government ensures that conditions for the smooth running of the elections and that it enforces the rule of law. The government must ensure that enemies of democracy cease disrupting this presidential campaign.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Unlike Francois Fillon, I don't believe in a purge and in fixing the country against the people's will. And unlike Benoit Hamon, I don't accept defeat on the jobs front. France must carry out structural reforms: it's good for us and will reassure our partners, and chiefly Germany. If we don't have a brave plan of structural reforms, the Germans won't follow us.feedback

Cas Mudde

Based on all the polls, as well as the polarization in France, she has virtually no chance. People argue she can win because they doubt the polls after Brexit and Trump. However, in both cases the margins were much smaller than between Le Pen and Macron or Fillon.feedback

Georges Fenech

With that as a starting point, we are going to the wall. There are other people in our party who are respectable, young and have the capacity to run the country.feedback

Georges Fenech

I'd love to be wrong but I can't believe any more because I can see on the ground the reaction of the voters. They don't want to vote for us any more.feedback

Alain Kepler

He must not give up because he is not the only one in this situation. Here in Reunion there have been several cases…and there always will be. That it how it is. That's democracy.feedback

Olivier Desbarres

Rating agencies want to come across as apolitical so if they think that a downgrade is justified they may not wait until after elections. The recent rise in French yields, although modest, could at the margin be stretching debt dynamics. Moreover, if the new president loosens fiscal policy, which most presidential candidates clearly want to do (with the exception of Fillon), that in itself could put France's credit ratings under pressure.feedback

Lothar Mentel

I am a little bit more worried about France, perhaps, what Fillon has done recently or what's come out has not been helpful, and the French are good for a revolution. The election of Trump has perhaps created headwind for the populist because the Europeans are a bit shocked by what's coming out of the U.S. at the moment and I sense that they don't really want to follow down that route.feedback

François Fillon

Not only does le Canard Enchaine try to cast doubt, wrongly, over the calculation of the net average salary of my wife but it commits numerous errors in analysing information on the pay slips. Only a desire to cause harm can explain this report which is full of lies. I now understand that it was naive to believe that justice would be served sensibly and rapidly.feedback

François Fillon

I have decided not to give in to intimidation and pressure. I have chosen to stand in front of the French, to face their judgement.feedback

François Fillon

I have nothing to hide. All acts described [in the media] are legal and transparent. Where does it leave me morally speaking? I must face up to myself and in reality also to the French people. What was acceptable yesterday is no longer acceptable today. It was an error. I regret it profoundly and I apologize to the French people. Her salary was perfectly justified because her work was indispensable to my activities as an elected official.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

She shares my whole life from morning till night and she wonders how I could physically do it! If in dinner-party chatter, or in forwarded emails, you're told that I have a double life, it's my hologram that suddenly escaped, but it can't be me!feedback

Thierry Herzog

The clear disagreement between the two magistrates in charge of the matter is such a rare event that it is worth underlining, as it illustrates the inanity of the decision.feedback

Georges Fenech

Francois Fillon has told us that he remains the candidate ... I sincerely hope that we don't wake up with a hangover on April 23.feedback

François Fillon

I am the only candidate who can bring about a national recovery. I am the candidate of the Right and I am here to win. A new campaign starts this evening. Her job was vital for my role as an elected official ... All of this was legal. It was a mistake, which I deeply regret, and I apologise to the French people.feedback

Alain Juppé

No is no. I'll say why. Today, let's listen to FF (Francois Fillon), our candidate.feedback

François Fillon

Her salary was perfectly justified because her work was indispensable to my work as an MP (member of parliament). To collaborate with family members in politics was an accepted thing, it is not accepted today. I am sorry and apologize. Tonight a new campaign starts.feedback

François Fillon

I want to tell millions of French people who chose me, no one will steal your choice.feedback

Georges Fenech

Today we know who will be candidate to the end. We must back him. We have no other choice.feedback

Jane Foley - Rabobank International

I think there was just a load of position adjustment this morning. There has been a lot of talk about the strong data in Europe but the other backdrop is the politics. A few weeks ago, the market was convinced (conservative presidential candidate Francois) Fillon would win and that certainty has evaporated.feedback

François Fillon

All acts described (in the media) are legal and transparent. It was a mistake. They call this job fictitious.feedback

François Fillon

Hold the line. We'll get through this ordeal together and march on to victory.feedback

Georges Fenech

We need to change tactics, strategy. We're like the orchestra on the Titanic as it sinks.feedback

François Fillon

I want justice to be done quickly. But I cannot deny that I'm really angry. I'm in a cold rage against these hounds, who are pleased with their demolition work.feedback

Roberto Magnatantini - SYZ Asset Management

The likely withdrawal of Mr Fillon from the presidential race not only eliminates a pragmatic pro-business candidate but also puts the whole traditional right in disarray and thus in a dismal position to face the election. The most obvious beneficiaries are the candidates and parties that vocally contest the status quo, led by Marine Le Pen. Their economic agendas are worrying enough to probably explain an increase in France's risk premium.feedback

François Fillon

People are not seeking justice. They are seeking to destroy me, and beyond me to destroy the Right and steal an election.feedback

François Fillon

When I was a Senator I occasionally paid my two sons for legal work that they were qualified to do. It was and is within the law, so legal.feedback

Georges Fenech

We're like the orchestra on the Titanic as it sinks. The only line of defence is the facts, not who started off the scandal.feedback

Martin van Vliet - ING Group

The France spread to Belgium is the gauge we use for political risk, and that has widened further after an adviser to Le Pen fleshed out their Frexit plans. And with Fillon under the microscope as well, France is definitely underperforming.feedback

Antonin Levy

Francois Fillon had no constituency office while he was a member of parliament. That role was filled from their home, and in your view who is at home ... if there is no office? Penelope Fillon of course.feedback

Antonin Levy

Working as a parliamentary assistant is not about writing up notes ... and summaries, it is also sometimes less tangible, less concrete but as real. It's being the person one trusts.feedback

Francois Miquet-Marty - Viavoice

This is harming him both in his bid to get to the Elysee (presidential palace) and also for his calls for the French to agree to tighten their belts for the sake of the recovery of the French economy.feedback

François Fillon

Facing the anesthesia camp, I am the labour and purchasing power candidate, because a country that works more, earns more.feedback

Marine Le Pen

We are ready, resolute, organised, but beyond my campaign I've been preparing my five-year term during these long months.feedback

François Fillon

Three months before the presidential elections, and coincidentally, a scandal has erupted. Through Penelope, they try to destroy me. I am afraid of nothing. I have a solid backbone. If they want to attack me, they can attack me straight in the eye, but they should leave my wife out of this political debate.feedback

Francoise Desenfants

I really don't mind, he spends the money (given to lawmakers) as he likes. And nothing's been proven.feedback

Emmanuel Rivière - TNS Sofres

A runoff without Francois Fillon is no longer ruled out. What boosts Emmanuel Macron's momentum is above all Penelopegate.feedback

François Fillon

Without the work my wife carried out I would not be where I am now.feedback

Bruno Retailleau

Are we going to allow a fake scandal dictate the agenda of Francois Fillon, one of the best-placed candidates? No way.feedback

Benoit Hamon

MPs should no longer be allowed to hire their children, cousins, relatives or wives.feedback

Regis Juanico

It's a pity that it should bring discredit upon all the people who work here, MPs and their collaborators, especially when they work hard and they don't count their hours each week.feedback

Thierry Solere

It is common practice that the spouses of parliamentarians are their employees, on the left as well as on the right.feedback

Jonathan Fenby

Governing France is going to be very difficult, because you've got an election now which is really all over the place. You've got Francois Fillon, the old-fashioned conservative man who appeals to the provincial catholic conservative vote but is promising to bring in Thatcherite economic measures which his electorate will not like very much.feedback

François Fillon

I am convinced that the economic sanctions are totally ineffective. We must find another way to talk. I do not want (U.S. President Donald) Trump to talk with Russia at our expense. It would be damaging for Europe if Trump went above our heads, which is not inconceivable.feedback

Henri de Castries - AXA Group

Francois Fillon has the best answers for the challenges we face: security, solidarity, competitiveness, education and innovation.feedback
