Eric Zemmour intends to engage in a long-term battle to "refound the French right", said Sunday Guillaume Peltier, vice-president of Reconquest, the party of the former far-right presidential candidate.
“We regret with Eric Zemmour that the Republicans and the National Rally are not today in this process of unity”, said the ex-LR during the political program of Europe 1, CNEWS and
, warning against a victory for the left in the June legislative elections under the aegis of the rebel Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
"Jean-Luc Mélenchon is bringing together Islamists, radical Muslims, wokists, the ultra-left," said Guillaume Peltier, believing that re-elected President Emmanuel Macron would be preparing to "govern on the left and with the ultra-left.
After his score of 7% of the votes in the presidential election, disappointing in view of the polls for the fall of 2021, the political future of Eric Zemmour and his movement Reconquête!
seems uncertain, especially as the former far-right candidate comes up against the refusal of his rival Marine Le Pen, with 41.5% of the vote in the second round, to conclude an alliance in the legislative elections.
Hand held out
According to Guillaume Peltier, the zemmourists intend to present some 550 candidates for the legislative elections, which will be held on June 12 and 19 in 577 constituencies.
They decided not to present candidates against Marine Le Pen (RN), Eric Ciotti (LR) and Nicolas Dupont Aignan (Debout la France), in the name of "national union".
"We never lose in reaching out and wanting to put aside ego quarrels to save France," assured Guillaume Peltier on Sunday, according to whom "Eric Zemmour will, throughout the coming months and years, rebuild the French right”.
And to warn that "those who refuse our outstretched hand will bear a great responsibility in the defeat, when Emmanuel Macron and Jean-Luc Mélenchon will govern our country together".
The union of the rights, "it's too simple to be intelligent", then retorted on the same antenna the secretary general of LR, Aurélien Pradié.
“I see what the Reconquest party!
is doing, they already believed in responsibility, they are in the process of seeing who can buy them”, he launched, denouncing an “absolutely miserable spectacle”.
