Manuel Valls Has a Microparty

The Woerth affair has brought les micro-partis into the news. We now know that Woerth, Pécresse, and others on the right financed their election campaigns in part through contributions to their own microparty formations. Now we learn that Manuel Valls has a microparty of his own, helping to finance preparations for his primary run, and according to Valls, he's not alone.

Aren't these just what we'd call PACs in the US? I don't see them as being actual parties, though for legal reasons they may have to call them that.
