On the window was tagged "Juppé, Delevoye, same fight", said the entourage of Pierre-Yves Bournazel to AFP, indicating that the damage was discovered Friday morning. He filed a complaint early in the afternoon. This permanence, located at 87, rue du Mont-Cenis, in the 18th arrondissement where Pierre-Yves Bournazel is elected, has belonged to the candidate since 2011.
Benjamin Griveaux immediately brought "all [his] support" to his new ally. “It is with the utmost firmness that I condemn these acts of vandalism. Democracy only exists in dialogue. Never in violence, "he tweeted.
Pierre-Yves Bournazel, who joined Benjamin Griveaux after calling in vain for a three-way alliance with dissident LREM Cédric Villani, was credited with 4% of the voting intentions in a poll commissioned by the Cédric Villani team and released by the press in December.
Cédric Villani also expressed his “full support” to him on Twitter. “Our democracy is rich in its debates of ideas, which can be animated but must never be violent. To attack our elected representatives, their offices, is to act against the Republic ”. "Nothing justifies these abuses, solidarity with @ pybournazel," also tweeted Emmanuel Grégoire, first deputy and campaign director of Anne Hidalgo, the outgoing socialist mayor, candidate for a new term. "Unacceptable. All my solidarity ”, also reacted Gaspard Gantzer, the candidate and founder of Parisiennes, Parisiens.
