While Manuel Valls could be invested as LREM candidate for the legislative elections next June, back to his love affair with his wife, Susana Gallardo.
Manuel Valls is swimming in happiness. Both personally and professionally. After having been a candidate for mayor of Barcelona, in vain, the former Prime Minister is more determined than ever to make his return to the front of the political scene, by running for a parliamentary seat in the legislative elections next June. Thus, he did not hide his views on the fifth constituency of the French established outside France, which includes Spain, Portugal, Andorra and Monaco. An application that he hopes to submit soon under the LREM banner, where he could soon be invested, according to Le Figaro and The Parisian. A small step that has something to delight Manuel Valls, who for several years has been running the perfect love with Susana Gallardo. After being married to Nathalie Soulié, with whom he had four children, and violinist Anne Gravoin, he met this 57-year-old Spaniard in 2018.
Born into a wealthy Spanish family, Susana Gallardo is the heiress of the pharmaceutical company Almirall, founded in the 1940s by her grandfather Antonio Gallardo Carreras. After being married to Alberto Palatchi, founder of Pronovias and father of her three children, she met Manuel Valls in the summer of 2018, during a sunny afternoon at a friend’s house, as she confided in an interview with to Paris Match. “He was not really in the conversation. He was a bit mechanical, corseted; he ate little, drank nothing. At first I thought it was like that: in France, politicians take themselves very seriously. serious !” she had specified. Perceiving “a man down”shaken by the romantic and political failures that followed his departure from Matignon, Susana Gallardo will end up falling in love with this man.
Manuel Valls said “yes” to Susana in the Balearic Islands
Between them, everything then went very quickly. A year after their meeting, Manuel Valls married the one who is now his third wife. It was on September 14, 2019 that the lovebirds said “yes” to each other, during a ceremony which took place on the island of Menorca, in the Balearic Islands. If she is above all a businesswoman, Susana Gallardo has politics in common with her husband. In 2017, she clearly displayed her anti-independence convictions on social networks on the day of the referendum on the independence of Catalonia, and was in the front row to support Manuel Valls when he was a candidate for mayor of Barcelona. A support that touched the latter, who in his book Not a drop of French blood was talking about his “French-speaking and Francophile wife”who has “also gave this happiness”.
