Marion Marechal calls for a united right-wing coalition in France

Marion Maréchal, vice-president of the Reconquest of Eric Zemmour! party, called on French conservatives and populists to form a united coalition in the upcoming legislative elections.

Maréchal, along with two other vice-presidents of Reconquête!, called on populists and conservatives to unite in a coalition to oppose left-wing and centrist parties, saying she was willing to hold coalition talks with the National Rally (RN) led by his aunt, Marine Le Pen.

“This choice does not call into question the singularity of our line and our strategy, which is not found anywhere else in the political spectrum”, declared Maréchal in a press release alongside Nicholas Bay and Guillaume Peltier before the legislative elections. of June, reports Reuters.

According to the statement signed by the three politicians, regardless of whether Emmanuel Macron or Marine Le Pen win the presidential race on Sunday, there is a need to unite conservative and populist forces in the French parliament.

“The election of a new majority in the National Assembly will be of crucial importance for the future of our country”, declared the three and added, “It will be necessary to be able to build a presidential majority around Marine Le Pen or impose cohabitation on Emmanuel Macron in order to prevent him from having full legislative powers for the next five years.

According to Maréchal, Bay and Peltier, a united right-wing coalition would push for a “legislative agenda, a policy of immigration firmness, a toughening of criminal policy, real economic patriotism, (…) support for families and the birth rate (…) ) or the rejection of any new transfer of sovereignty to the European Union. »

It is unclear whether or not Ms Le Pen would consent to a right-wing grand coalition if she wins the presidency, as she has previously said she has no desire to govern alongside her niece or Mr Zemmour, who won 7% of the vote in the first round of the presidential election.

Ms Marechal, who served as an MP under Le Pen until 2017 as a member of the National Front (FN), joined Zemmour’s campaign last month but said she would not vote for her aunt from January this year.

Le Pen reacted to Maréchal’s comments by saying: “I have a special history with Marion because I raised her with my sister for the first years of her life, so obviously it’s brutal, it’s violent, It’s difficult for me.”
