“Here, in Evry, my hometown, the city of my family, my children. In the city of my heart, where people always speak directly, I am announcing my candidacy for president of the republic,” Valls said.
Premier said that he wants to see France independent and inflexible in regard to its values, and it is time for the country to assess its relevance in a changed world.
"For me, it's time to move on. I'll leave the authority tomorrow, as I would like to suggest France my own path,” the prime minister said.
