Elisabeth Borne called Monday's majority candidates for the legislative election to "go to politics", by challenging the National Rally, which is "an assembly misleading ideas" and the "Danger Nupes", which are described as "forced marriage" on the right.
The Prime Minister gave messages of encouragement to candidates "who are in constituencies for conquest" during an hour-long videoconference.
Borne said, "We must not hesitate in going to political confrontation." She insisted that "to think we will be carried only by the majority dynamics resulting out the presidential election would be a mistake." 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 blasted, "The RN may have changed its name and tone, but it hasn't changed its program", which she said "remains a collection misleading ideas whose implications would be dramatic for the country". She emphasized her qualities as a left-wing woman and also spoke out about Jean-Luc Melenchon, the leader of Insoumis who would have "enslaved other left-wing parties by relegating these to the rank of mere additionals",
Borne stated that "The Nupes, while not the popular front, is a reversed front that claims to fight the RN when certain convergences are troubling", and called for "denouncing the ground" about this "Nupes danger."
Violaine Richard (candidate in Vaucluse), said that she felt "quite little interest from voters. Abandonment, anger." She warned of the "strong danger of abstention" in the territory where the RN is and Reconquest! The presidential election saw high turnout.
