A debate between Marine Le Pen and Eric Zemmour, the two far-right candidates for the 2022 presidential election, is under consideration for early February, the two parties announced on Friday.

The entourage of the candidate of the National Rally indicated that Marine Le Pen "was thinking very seriously" about the possibility of a debate with the former editorialist but that "nothing is stalled".

It would be "a little different format" from a simple televised debate, it was added.

"Yes in principle" for Marine Le Pen

“I am delighted that Marine Le Pen deigns to debate with me. We will do it as soon as she wants. She said March, after February, maybe it will finally be in January, ”said Eric Zemmour during a meeting with the press at his Paris HQ. He expressed his wish that this meeting be televised and "not in the written press, because in the written press, you can rewrite everything".

According to Eric Zemmour's entourage, Marine Le Pen said a "yes in principle" to this debate.

"The organizer was considering it at the start of the school year in January but she said in February".

The mayor of Béziers close to RN Robert Ménard, support of Marine Le Pen but also friend of Eric Zemmour, had tried in vain, at the beginning of September, to bring them together in his city.

But the two officials disagreed on its format, the former preferring a private dinner while the latter proposed a public debate.

Two other “big meetings” for Eric Zemmour

Eric Zemmour's entourage has also announced its intention to organize two other "major campaign meetings" after that of Villepinte (Seine-Saint-Denis) on Sunday: one in the region, perhaps in January, and one in Paris or in the Parisian suburbs before the first round of the presidential election on April 10.

He estimates the cost of the Villepinte meeting at 550,000 euros, which hosted more than 10,000 people at the Parc des Expositions.

This meeting was parasitized by scenes of violence, but the campaign team claims a "success".

She claims to have already recorded "many donations" and "40,000 memberships" to the new Reconquest party!

: "1.83 million euros" have been collected since the meeting on Sunday, says Eric Zemmour's entourage.
