In "ultraviolence", Marine Le Pen saw "partly a consequence of the anarchic and uncontrolled immigration imposed on the French for years".

The head of the RN has promised to restore "a triple certainty: the certainty of prosecution", "of sanctions", and "of the execution of the sentence".

"Impunity is over, fictitious sentences are over, the prison daycare is over."

A new slogan, "French awake"

“The ideological battle has been won for years.

What we are waiting for is political victory, ”Marine Le Pen stressed on Saturday, sending back to back the right and the government, who have“ done nothing ”.

In front of the slogan "French awake", the finalist of the presidential election of 2017 invited the abstainers to vote for her, after having castigated the day before an LR party in "ideological porosity" with the head of state.

In this regard, she promised to "remove certain ambiguities" when right-wing voters "believe that the RN's economic program is the same" as that of rebellious France, even if she still defends retirement at 60 with 40 annuities.

Marine Le Pen praises "localism"

The mayor of Béziers Robert Ménard, elected with the support of the RN, estimates in the weekly Le Point that Marine Le Pen is "not in a position to win" in 2022 because she holds "very leftist analyzes".

Marine Le Pen also warned against an economic and social fall that could also be "murderous" and praised an "other model" based on "localism", after having denounced in July "the fiasco" of the management of the health crisis by the government in a Black Book.

A party in financial difficulty

Marine Le Pen thus intends to occupy all the political space to face Emmanuel Macron again in the second round of the presidential election, in 2002, even if the French are 68% not to wish this duel, according to Ifop.

It is also for her to revive her troops, after disappointing municipal elections, for the senatorial, departmental and regional elections to come.

But the head of the RN, like the number 2 of the party Jordan Bardella, will not run for the regional and always "thinks" of leaving the reins of the party to devote himself to the presidential election.

If his boss is already on his way to 2022, the RN does not show him the same momentum as before the last presidential election, according to the admission of several elected officials.

The party, in financial difficulty, targeted by an investigation and lacking members, "has become skeletal" and there is "deep unease on the ground", reports one of them, especially since the update.
