Nathalie Arthaud (Lutte Ouvrière): I am not a professional politician. I am an activist who fights for her revolutionary communist ideas. If I am a candidate in this presidential election, it is not to play a role, it is to defend a program of struggles that the workers will need when they want to fight to defend their interests step by step.

Marine Le Pen (Rassemblement National): There is undeniably an element of performance in politics, whether it be posture, public speaking or repartee.

Yannick Jadot (Ecologist Pole): Too many politicians sometimes seem to be “playing the comedy”, adapting their convictions and their speech to the target audience. It’s bad cinema and bad politics. In politics as in cinema, sincerity is a primordial value.
