A few weeks before the legislative elections, the left seems to be uniting.

An agreement has been reached between rebellious France, the Greens and the Communist Party and an agreement could soon be signed with the Socialist Party.

But on the right side, everything is different.

One thing is certain: there will be no alliance between the National Rally and Reconquest.

While the left is about to unite in the legislative elections, to the right of the right, there will be no agreement between the National Rally (RN) and Reconquest.

The camp of Marine Le Pen closed the door to that of Éric Zemmour, who pleaded in favor of a union of the rights.

Behind this disagreement, there are several reasons given by the RN.

Two issues

First, a political issue: that of hegemony in the national camp.

Marine Le Pen, well ahead of Eric Zemmour in the first round of the presidential election, has the opportunity to nip the birth of Reconquest in the bud.

This one, without agreement between the two parties, could finally have no deputy.

The other explanation is financial, legislative elections being the primary source of funding for political parties.

Thus, by presenting the maximum number of candidates and electing as many deputies as possible, the National Rally can hope for a sum of between 10 and 20 million euros.

A manna, paid annually by the State, and which represents a necessity for the finances of the National Rally, indebted to the tune of twenty million euros.

Finally, we must not rule out the personal enmity between Marine Le Pen and Éric Zemmour.

The second having multiplied the spikes against the first throughout the presidential election, until the evening of the second round.

What constituencies are envisaged by Éric Zemmour?

Regarding the president of the Reconquest party, no decision has been taken for the legislative elections.

Éric Zemmour is still hesitating and his decision should be made early next week.

"He took a liking to the countryside and he wants to go back," says a relative, who assesses the chances of a candidacy at 60%.

Among the constituencies considered to run, those where he obtained his best scores in the presidential election.

Éric Zemmour would be tempted by the Var, but also looks at certain territories in the Alpes-Maritimes or the Bouches-du-Rhône.

The track of the 17th arrondissement of Paris, it ultimately has less chance of succeeding.
