Legislative: Manuel Valls was eliminated in the first round

Manuel Valls, who was allegedly invested by the president majority to represent France abroad, was defeated in Sunday's first round. This is a new scandal for the former Prime Minister, following the defeat of his bid for municipal elections in Barcelona. "I take note. (...) "If dissent and division had sown confusion," he tweeted, before official results were announced. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will publish the results. "It is up for me to see the consequences clearly. He said that life is enough to make the pages turn quietly. Renaud Le Berre was the first candidate to be blocked in the second round. He is the fifth French expatriate constituency, which includes Spain Portugal Monaco Andorra, Portugal Monaco, Monaco, and Spain. It has approximately 120,000 registered voters.

The May 5th announcement of the investiture by the former Prime Minister was a bombshell in this constituency, particularly among Spanish-speaking French citizens. Stephane Vojetta (outgoing deputy) wore the colors of La Republique en Marche. He had made the decision to resist this "parachuting" and promised, if elected to office, to be a "loyal supporter" of Emmanuel Macron. He posted on Twitter that he was qualified for the second round and called on the president's majority to "unite behind [his] candidacy". He said, "But it must also consider the message sent to them by voters: a call for less verticality and more listening to the field and a real renewal in our practices and personnel." added.

Manuel Valls believed he could mobilize voters through his CV and network for these legislative elections. In an interview with AFP Madrid, he said that his only candidacy had put the spotlight on French expatriates. He retorted, "I want the French benefit from my experience" and his influence, (...) as well as my strong voice. This is a setback for the former socialist heavyweight, who left France four years ago to attempt to win the 2019 town hall in Barcelona. He was convinced that he could win these municipal elections after failing in the 2017 socialist primaries for the French presidency election. However, he came in fourth place with just 13% of the vote, behind Ada Colau, the Catalan independence candidate, and Ada Colau, the outgoing left-wing mayor. Manuel Valls, a wealthy heiress from a Catalan pharmaceutical firm, had a relationship with Susana Galardo and was able to leave the Barcelona city council in 2021 in order to return to France to be a columnist for RMC broadcasts and BFMTV broadcasts.

The Nupes made fun of this new failure by the former Prime Minister. "That's what we call an excellent Sunday evening to begin the final week of the campaign here in France!" Manon Aubry (MEP for France Insoumise), tweeted the tweet. Adrien Quatennens was number two in Jean-Luc Melenchon’s party and posted a photo showing Mr. Melenchon holding "Good riddance” signs with other LFI parliamentarians.
