Indeed, this wonderful challenge transcends all political divisions and enjoys the unanimous support of all those concerned.
Paris is bidding for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games at the initiative of the Mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë, with the full backing of the Municipal Council, along with the President of the French National Olympic Committee (CNOSF), Henri Sérandour.
For the French State, the project received from the outset the active backing of the President of the Republic, Jacques Chirac.

The French Government, led by Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin, is making an active contribution to preparing Paris's bid with, above all, the involvement of the Sports Minister, Jean-François Lamour, who is contributing all his experience of the Olympic World.

On the regional level, the project is supported by the entire Ile-de-France Regional Council, chaired by Jean-Paul Huchon.

The support of the various public authorities is clearly demonstrated by the composition of the Bid Committee.

Moreover, the departments of the various public authorities are closely associated with the project's preparation for Paris 2012 through permanent working groups and according to their competencies.
