Outcome and perspectives of the primary election

On November 21st, Terra Nova and Tilder published the report “Les primaires : une voie de modernisation pour la démocratie française, de l’expérience socialiste au renouveau citoyen” (“Primary elections: a way to modernize French democraty, from the Socialist experience to a democratic renewal”). The results of an exclusive survey Opinion Way for Terra Nova – Tilder were also published. 

The progressive think tank and Tilder decided to highlight the outcome of this ballot. Why was it such a success? What do French people think about it? What improvements should be made to fix the system? Could it be extended to French political life, to all elections and ballots?

The report is the result of the word of a group of experts from different countries and backgrounds, through more than 30 meetings with the candidates, their teams, and main observers of the process.

Tilder associates itself to this non-partisan initiative aiming at a renewal of the Vth Republic. According to Tilder, Primary elections can modify the political debate and democracy.
