As if there was a cacophony. The presidential coalition and supporters of Emmanuel Macron expressed divergent opinions about the possibility of a republican front being formed in constituencies where the New People's Ecological and Social Union will be facing the National Rally (RN) on Sunday, June 12.
Jean-Michel Blanquer (ex-Minister for National Education, unsuccessful candidate for deputy to Loiret), dismissed both blocs back-to-back, declaring that the "far left" is as dangerous as the "far right". Clement Beaune (Minister of European Affairs), stated clearly on the BFMTV set that Nupes was not equal to the RN. Maud Bregeon was the spokesperson for the presidential Renaissance party and she said on the same channel that "not a voice was to go to Marine Le Pen."
Another answer was given at the beginning of the evening: the examination "local situations", as stated on TF1 in the Minister of Action and Public Accounts Gabriel Attal. Interviewed on France 2, Olivia Gregoire, a government spokesperson, also said that "local disputes" are not a national issue and pointed out that Nupes and RN duels only affect "very few constituencies".
