DECRYPTION – Minister Brigitte Bourguignon puts her mandate as deputy back on the line on Sunday. The executive is trying to downplay the scope of the ballot, as it looks perilous.

The exclamation point of La Rà © publique en Marche (LREM) has disappeared. The name of Emmanuel Macron too. In front of the posters pasted in the streets of Guînes (Pas-de-Calais), the passer-by would be almost unaware that Brigitte Bourguignon is a minister in the countryside. The member of the government, in charge of autonomy, has erased all national reference as the election is a dangerous announcement.

A minister forced to put her seat as deputy back into play, a risk of defeat for the majority, a National Rally (RN) conquering on the lands of Marine Le Pen: Brigitte Bourguignon knows that his poll, in the sixth district of Pas-de-Calais, is the most observed of the four legislative elections of May 30 and June 6.

The executive would have gone well with this electoral event, which has already been postponed three times due to the Covid-19 epidemic. He should also have been spared: when she was appointed to the government in July 2020, Brigitte Bourguignon had to hand over her seat to her deputy.

In 2017, almost all of the posters of the LREM candidates had the photograph of Emmanuel Macron. A member of the right (losing) had said “if we had put a bag of potatoes next to the photo of Emmanuel Macron, the bag of potatoes would have been elected”. An assembly of sack of potatoes on arrival? We can ask ourselves the question because this Macron mandate which was to change everything will have passed almost no lasting law and the defense councils have replaced the parliament.
