Observers suggested Macron played a double game when he quit the Socialist government last year without telling Hollande his true ambitions. He launched his presidential bid in November before the unpopular president had announced whether he would seek re-election. Macron’s entry into the race is viewed as one of the main factors behind Hollande’s decision not to pursue a second term. “What seduced a lot of people -and I think he is not a seducer- it’s his capacity of putting forward an argument, taking time to speak, taking time to ponder,” Mongin said. For two decades Macron has divided his time between Paris, were he had his professional life, and weekends in Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, an elegant seaside resort. online trainingWith roughly 4,000 permanent inhabitants and several thousand more in summertime the town is a tranquil place most of the year. Families recall socializing with the Macrons in the summer, drinking an aperitif on the beach while children played together. Gregoire Campion, 62, has known the couple for about 20 years. He talks about Macron as “Manu, a cool guy, open-minded.” “I thought it was a wonderful (love) story. On top of that he was very well-accepted by Brigitte’s children,” Campion said. “It’s a proof of commitment, the same way as he commits himself for France.” Until recent months, Macron could be seen walking to the tennis club, taking out the garbage, shopping with his wife.
