The Gaullists: From Free France to the Present?

First used during the Resistance, the term “Gaullists”—to which de Gaulle preferred “companions”—has from 1947 mainly, but not exclusively, designated the members of parties engaged in Charles de Gaulle’s political fight, first in the opposition and then in power. After his presidency, the partisans of Georges Pompidou and those of Jacques Chirac have presented themselves as the heirs of the General, but sharp differences exist between Gaullists and neo-Gaullists. Since the beginning of the 21st century, it is impossible to identify the Gaullists in the political spectrum. While the consensual image of General de Gaulle may lead to believe that all French people are now Gaullists, the truth is they are rather “Gaullians”.
