POLICY – From Fréjus with love. Marine Le Pen is making her political comeback this weekend in the Var, in particular to hand over the head of the National Rally to her lieutenant Jordan Bardella and to fully embark on the presidential race.

Before that, she made a point of posting, on social networks, a message for the attention of her niece, Marion Maréchal, absent from her back-to-school gathering. And for good reason, the former parliamentarian is getting married this Saturday with Italian far-right MEP Vincenzo Sofo.

“From Fréjus, where I am staying, I extend my congratulations to my niece Marion Maréchal, as well as to her future husband Vincenzo. My very sincere wishes for happiness accompany them on this magnificent and unique day! ”Wrote Marine Le Pen on her Twitter account on Saturday 11 September.

The patron of the National Gathering will therefore not be able to attend the ceremony which takes place in the Paris region, according to Le Parisien. By chance?

“It suits everyone that the wedding and Fréjus take place at the same time,” explained an anonymous source, invited by Marion Maréchal, to the daily on September 2. “The wedding was fixed before. Those who set the date for Fréjus were aware in any case ”, added another, invited to the two events.

Coincidence, awkward timing or not, the Var meeting of Marine Le Pen takes place in a more delicate context than expected. And not just family. His return to school is indeed parasitized by Eric Zemmour, who keeps sending signals about a future candidacy. From next week, he will “exchange with the French” on the occasion of the promotion of a new political essay, France has not said its last word.

The far-right polemicist, convicted of incitement to hatred, is now credited with 7% of voting intentions in recent polls. Voices he would take from both the right-wing candidate and Marine Le Pen.
