This is another great catch for Les Républicains in the Yvelines. The departmental federation of the party has just confirmed this Thursday the investiture of Charles Consigny, lawyer at the Paris bar, for the legislative elections. Which is particularly known to the general public for his media appearances as a columnist at Laurent Ruquier, on "We are not lying", or for "Les Grandes Gueules" by RMC.
The 32-year-old man joined Valérie Pécresse's presidential campaign last January. He will bring the LR candidacy to the legislative elections in the fourth constituency (Chatou, Marly-le-Roi, Houille), to try to win it back, after being won in 2017 by the LREM deputy Marie Lebec.
Close to Valérie Pécresse and Christine Boutin
The link of the lawyer in the Yvelines is in particular to be sought on the side of Christine Boutin, former deputy and ex-elected to the departmental council. Then in his twenties, he was communications adviser to the president of the Christian Democratic Party.

He is the second lawyer from Valérie Pécresse's entourage to join the Republican campaign for the legislative elections in Yvelines.

Which will run in the sixth constituency, that of Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
