Gérald Darmanin will no longer be Minister of the Interior in the event of the defeat of the majority in the legislative elections on July 7, even before the opening of the Olympic Games, he told AFP on Friday.

“If the RN or LFI ever win, I will under no circumstances be Minister of the Interior, even for a few more weeks”indicated Gérald Darmanin. “If we lose the elections nationally, we no longer have legitimacy” and “I will not work with Mr. Bardella or Mr. Mélenchon”he insisted.

“The Olympics were well prepared, everyone knows it and everyone welcomes it”he continued, when asked about the consequences of a change of minister a few days before the opening of the Games (July 26-August 11). “Even Mr. Bardella welcomed the fact that the Olympics were well prepared and that there was a good Minister of the Interior,” he said again.

Gérald Darmanin, who has been stationed in Beauvau for almost four years, remained more vague about his future in the event of a victory for the presidential camp.

“In this case, I will be at the disposal of the President of the Republic”

“If ever the President of the Republic were to have a majority, it is he who would choose his government. I imagine that there will be a change of government and obviously, in this case, I will be at the disposal of the President of the Republic”he said.

“If he thinks that I am useful for this position or another, I will study the proposal of the President of the Republic and I will serve my country as I have always done”he said again. “If I were ever to be beaten as a deputy, obviously I would not continue to be a minister, that’s normal. When you’re in politics, you have to be elected”.
