According to a poll, 44% of police and military would be ready to vote for Marine Le Pen in the first round of the presidential election. Asked by BFM TV, the national representative of the SGP Police FO Unit union, Linda Kebbab, did not say she was surprised.
Invited on BFM TV on May 12, the national representative of the SGP Police FO Unit union, Linda Kebbab, reacted to the Ipsos-Cevipof poll for Opinion revealing that 44% of police and military would be ready to vote for the candidate of the National Rally (RN), Marine Le Pen, in the first round of the 2022 presidential election. They would be 60% to support her in the event of a second round against Emmanuel Macron .
Far from being astonished by these figures, Linda Kebbab explained them by returning to the statements of the different parties on the subject of the police: “You have one who calls you a barbarian, you have one who votes against the law. Global Security law and particularly on the article which would prohibit the dissemination of the faces of the police officers with the intention of causing harm, you have a majority which today does not convince the police officers, you have a right which is having a lot of trouble today to speak out and you have an extreme right that […] manages, through his speeches and in terms of communication, to attract a lot of French people. “
Affirming that many of her colleagues had let her know that they were neither “fascists”, “racists” or “extremists”, Linda Kebbab explained that they could vote in favor of Marine Le Pen because the choice will be between “the one who spits in the face [des policiers] all the time, between the one who is not a Republican, and the one who – perhaps with a lot of intelligence – says that she will support us ”.
She also assured that police officers immersed in a left world since their childhood would slip an RN bulletin into the ballot box. For her, the main thing is not to worry about the vote for the National Rally, but to understand the causes. “Rather than castigating the police officers who would vote for the National Rally, that the politicians question the way in which they have lost the confidence of the police”, she concluded.
