Candidate in the 4th district of the Var, the president of Reconquest!

Éric Zemmour will not be able to slip a ballot in his name into the ballot box on Sunday, for the first round of the legislative elections.

The ex-polemicist is not registered on the electoral lists of the constituency.

A scenario that is not unique in this election.

He will not vote for himself on June 12.

Éric Zemmour, president of Reconquest!

and candidate in the 4th constituency of Var, will not be able to count on his own vote in the first round of the legislative elections.

In reality, the ex-polemicist is not registered on the electoral lists where he presents himself.

In an internal party email reported by TF1, it is stated that Éric Zemmour "will stay in the Var all day and will therefore vote by proxy".

No images of Zemmour voting for himself

Even if he toured the 4th district of Var to meet voters, offering a remote fight with Jordan Bardella, the interim president of the National Rally, the former journalist is still registered on the electoral lists. Parisians.

For the presidential election, he had voted in the 8th arrondissement of Paris.

An election where he had therefore been able to slip a ballot in his name into the ballot box, and during which he had collected 7% of the votes in the first round.

For the legislative elections, we will therefore not see the candidate come out of the voting booth and vote for himself, which does not prevent him from presenting himself in the Var.

In this election, the candidates are not obliged to be registered on "the electoral list of one of the municipalities of the legislative district in which they are running", underlines the site vie-publique.fr.

A regulation which therefore allows "parachuting".
