Marine Le Pen handed over the presidency of the National Gathering to his number two, Jordan Bardella, this Sunday in Fréjus. The candidate for the Elysee wants to focus on her campaign for the 2022 presidential election, a ballot that will lead, according to her, to “a choice of civilization”.

Marine Le Pen is launching her third presidential campaign. Candidate for the 2022 election, she convened this weekend in Fréjus the National Council of her party, of which she entrusted the reins to First Vice-President Jordan Bardella. Objective: to have free rein vis-à-vis the National Rally and plunge into the electoral battle.

The candidate released her first campaign poster, without the name Le Pen, and without the name Rassemblement national, but with a new slogan “Freedoms, cherished freedoms”, a phrase borrowed from La Marseillaise. In Marine Le Pen, the conquest of the Elysée, in Jordan Bardella, the presidency of the party, shaken by the failure of the regional in June, which is more in debt and whose membership is declining.

In front of 900 activists gathered this Sunday at the Roman theater in Fréjus, Marine Le Pen presented the 2022 presidential election as “a choice of civilization” more than a “choice of society”. His speech gave a large place to identity and security themes. “In France, the French have the right to live like French people. Delinquents will be put out of harm’s way, French delinquents in prison, foreigners on the plane,” she said in particular.

Marine Le Pen has to contend with supposedly extreme right-wing competition from Eric Zemmour. The polemicist, whose name she did not mention, has always said whether or not he would be a candidate, but he “wants” to do so as he said on Saturday night on France 2.

At 25, Parisian Jordan Bardella became the youngest political party leader of the Fifth Republic. To the credit of this young man with a meteoric rise in politics, the score of the 2019 European elections: the list he led for the RN came first with 23.31% of the vote, ahead of that of the presidential majority and the ex-Minister Nathalie Loiseau.

Marine Le Pen will also make her television debut in the 8 p.m. news of TF1, while that of France 2 will receive a certain Anne Hidalgo, who officially announced her candidacy for the presidential election this Sunday morning in Rouen.
