Pushed towards the door by his own camp, Gaël Perdriau, president of the metropolis of Saint-Etienne, announced Thursday, December 8 to put in “full withdrawal” of his functions.

Bruno Retailleau and Aurélien Pradié, candidates for the presidency of the Les Républicains (LR) party, called for the resignation of the mayor of Saint-Etienne on November 30, after new revelations from Mediapart about her. The chosen one had been expelled from the right-wing party in October due to an investigation published by the news site at the end of August, placing him at the heart of a case of political blackmail at the “sex tape”. November 30, Mediapart this time reported slanderous remarks made by Mr. Perdriau against the president (LR) of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Laurent Wauquiez. This last announced to file a complaint for defamation.
