First Secretary of the Socialist Party Martine Aubry began a campaign for the Socialist Party and Radical Party of Left presidential primary, 2011 for President of France in June 2011. Aubry announced she was running for president during a meeting in former train station of Lille-Saint-Sauveur held June 28, 2011.[1]

She was the candidate with the most time in Government. Representing the party's left-wing, she made it to the run-offs and lost the nomination to François Hollande.

Speculation about presidential run[edit]

Since her election over Ségolène Royal as head of the Socialist Party in 2008, Aubry has become a credible and serious candidate for the presidential election.

The victories of her party in regional elections in 2010 and cantonal elections in 2011 make her the natural candidate of the party for the next presidential election.

In 2010 the principal contenders, Martine Aubry and Dominique Strauss-Kahn, agreed between themselves the so-called "Marrakech pact" (pacte de Marrakech) whereby each undertook eventually to give way to the candidate best placed in the opinion polls, which at that time was Strauss-Kahn. The final candidate would be announced a few days before the deadline for nominations, towards the end of June 2011.[2]

On 3 May 2011, Le Nouvel Observateur reported that Aubry had told her closest supporters she would not be putting her name forward and would support Strauss-Kahn, the clear favorite in the opinions polls.[3] Aubry denied the story, visibly upset, saying that France expected something different.[4] Several days later, Stauss-Kahn's arrest on charges of sexual assault and attempted rape revived interest in her candidacy. On 22 May Aubry said she would accept her responsibilities when the time came, without nevertheless putting her name forward at the same time.[5]

Campaign trail[edit]


On June 28, 2011, Aubry said in a televised address from the northern town of Lille " I have decided to propose my candidacy to the presidential election ".[6]


Recent polls give Martine Aubry elbow to elbow with François Hollande in socialist primary.

Proposals and statements[edit]

She publicly denouncing rumours that are proliferating on the internet about her husband, her health and her private life, she threatens to complain if these rumors persist.[7]

During the Festival d'Avignon, she proposes to increase the budget for culture by 30% or 50%.[8] Aubry finally supported the proposal of her main rival François Hollande to reduce the public deficit to 3% of GDP in 2013.[9]
