Louise Weiss et quelques autres : candidates et élues gaullistes au Parlement européen (1979-1989)

Abstract : The decision to elect representatives to the European Parliament through universal suffrage, starting in 1979, was a novelty that did not please the Gaullists in the least. Nevertheless, Jacques Chirac's RPR mounted a campaign despite its lack of real interest in the European election. Fifth on the Gaullist list, Louise Weiss, "citizen of Europe", ensured that the RPR could claim at least one genuine European advocate amidst candidates who intended to defend the interests of France above all. The turnstile of candidates established by the RPR showed what little importance it accorded to this vote. After managing to remain on the constantly-changing election lists of 1984 and 1989, some Gaullist women were elected but it was clear that they did not play a major role in the assembly in Strasbourg.
