” Better a poor horse than no horse at all “On Wednesday, journalists launch comedian Laurent Baffie, who is campaigning in Paris for the Animal Party, whose official poster he is waving stamped with an orange duckling.
” Sir. deputy, it’s classy, huh? I want to suck public money like the others and enjoy the same lifestyle He jokes when he wants to be at the top of the list in Paris’ third constituency.
Support more than real political ambitions
For Laurent Baffie, this commitment to animals is not new. He readily admits that his candidacy is more supportive than real political ambitions.
” I am totally for the cause, so the animals are raised under dignified conditions. I started supporting them because they asked me to. It’s a kind of spotlight ‘Explains the one who once admits to having voted for the Green Party a bit by default.
At first hesitant, as if embarrassed to be there, the “PAF sniper” takes time to put on this new graduate costume, hesitant to hand out leaflets.
He seems a little informed about those who will meet him at the parliamentary elections in June, where he will be particularly opposed to Stanislas Guerini, a former LREM delegate who has just been appointed Minister of Transformation and Public Service. ” Guerini? I do not even know who it ishe replies with a smile. I have always had more affinity with the ducks than with the political class “.
Gives your picture
For his deputy Douckha Markovic, also a Parisian city councilor in charge of animal rights, this exhibition is valuable. ” It is rare to have celebrities who give their time to support this cause and help animalsshe thinks. Above all, it is a support, although it may be the only time he wants to campaign, he gives of his image and his time to the animals “.
Folders in hand relax Baffie and end up getting caught up in the game, even going so far as to plead for the Animal Party around the carousel and the baby swings, and even succeeding in convincing an upcoming voter sitting on a bench. Two minutes later she is thrilled. ” I will vote for the Animal Party and Laurent Baffie without hesitation Promises Khely Marin, a 34-year-old salesman.
Laurent Baffie is not the only personality who wants to run for a seat in the National Assembly: former columnist Aymeric Caron and humorist Gérald Dahan under Nupe’s colors or singer Francis Lalanne, without a label, have also nominated.
Clear about his chances of victory, says Baffie ” know that their score is generally around 2%. If I can help them earn at least 3%, I will already be very happy “to make sure he” will always support them “And that he will look at his score” with the greatest attention “. And to end with a slogan:” If you do not like politics, vote for animals. »
