The Mayor of the Rassemblement national de Perpignan, Louis Aliot, confirms that Robert Ménard will “vote for Marine Le Pen and call for a vote” this Saturday morning on the BFMTV antenna.

Robert Ménard, the mayor of Béziers and longtime supporter of the Rallye National candidate, announced on Friday that he was withdrawing from the election campaign because of “inconsistencies”.

“He doesn’t want us systematically on television to discuss what we don’t share. He is withdrawing from the media aspect of the campaign,” specifies Louis Aliot.

The Mélenchon election, an electorate of the “archipelago”, according to the Jean Jaurès Foundation

“The oldest candidate is the one who has received the most support from young people”, analyzes the Jean Jaurès Foundation, which calls Jean-Luc Mélenchon, 70, the “French Sanders”, named after the figure of the American left Bernie Sanders, in a note published this Saturday.

The study sheds light on the different components of Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s electorate, such as the 18-24 age group, who voted 36% for the Union Populaire candidate because of global warming and the “new cultural struggles of the USA” were attentive to the left”, in particular “feminism” and “anti-racism”.

Macron unpopular with young people? Dussopt denounces an “epiphenomenon”.

Far surpassed by Jean-Luc Mélenchon last Sunday among the 18-24 year olds, the subject of hostile mobilizations, especially among students at the Sorbonne, Emmanuel Macron is definitely having a hard time convincing this part of the electorate. On our set, Olviier Dussopt castigated an “epiphenomenon”.

He did, however, pledge to do his “morning of conscience” “every day”, adding: “It worries me more if it’s the French who have had trouble ending the month.”

Dussopt opposes Macron’s “Progress” program to Le Pen’s “Odds and Ends” project

Olivier Dussopt, Minister Delegate for Public Finances, is our guest this Saturday morning. He commented on the President of the Republic’s trip to Marseille: “It’s about convincing all the voters”. “He will have the opportunity to address all the French in Marseille,” he said.

Faced with the risk that a large part of the electorate would reject his candidate and that of the RN back to back, Olivier Dussopt promoted the program “which will allow us to advance, to anchor France in Europe and to be independent of the big forces” , which he bestows on Emmanuel Macron. On the other hand, he denounced a program that, on the side of Marine Le Pen, “relates to the fundamentals of the extreme right and consists of trifles”. “France is a projection,” he concluded.

Thirty demonstrations against the extreme right across France

Eight days before the second round of the presidential election between Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron, 30 demonstrations are planned for Saturday in France to say “no to the far right”.

About 15,000 demonstrators are expected throughout the area, according to the authorities. They are responding to the call of more than thirty organizations and unions, including SOS Racisme, the CGT and the Syndicat de la Magistrature. These mobilizations will have the slogan: “Against the extreme right and their ideas, no Marine Le Pen in the Elysée”.
