Elisabeth Borne called Monday’s majority candidates for the legislative election to “go to politics”, by challenging the National Rally’s program, which is “an assembly misleading ideas” and the “Danger Nupes”, which are described as “forced marriage” on the right.

A videoconference lasted an hour with around 200 of the 550 candidates who carried the Together! The Prime Minister sent messages of encouragement to the candidates who were in constituencies for conquest, in light of the June 12 and 19 elections.

Elisabeth Borne pleaded, “We must not hesitate in going to political confrontation”. “To believe that we will be carried in the majority dynamic resulting in the presidential election alone is a mistake” she said, along with Richard Ferrand, President of the National Assembly.

The head of government pinned both the National Rally and the New Popular Ecological and Social Union in her speech. She believed that these two extreme blocs were using strong words to conceal short ideas.

She remarked that “The RN had changed its name and tone, but not its program”, which she said “remains a collection of misleading ideas whose implications would be dramatic for the country”.

She emphasized her qualities as a left-wing woman and lingered on “the motley coalition on the left under Jean-Luc Melenchon”, who would have “enslaved other left-wing parties by relegating these to the rank of mere additionals”.

She said, “It’s the forced marriage of all of the components of left, in service of Jean-Luc Melenchon’s revanchist ambitions” adding that she felt “unease” and “concern” about the gathering.

Borne stated that “The Nupes isn’t the popular front, but an overthrown front who claims to be fighting RN while some convergences are troubling”, and called for “denouncing the ground” this “Nupes threat.”

Elisabeth Borne was challenged during this meeting by half a dozen potential candidates, mainly on the mixed interest of citizens in the legislative campaign.

Violaine Richard (candidate in the 4th constituency in Vaucluse), said that she felt “quite little interest from voters. Abandonment, anger” and warned of the “strong danger of abstention in this territory where the RN is still in operation. Scored high in the presidential elections.
