“I have known Giorgia Meloni for a long time, since she did not yet have the dimension she has taken today. So, I understand well that it can be in a form of competition, with Matteo (Salvini ed.). But we must come together, be the vanguard of the European re-foundation ”. These are the words of the president of the Rassemblement National Marine Le Pen, in an interview with Corriere della Sera. “I know it’s like this for Matteo, I don’t know if it’s still like that for Giorgia, but everyone must agree to work together in Europe. It can be complicated especially in Italy, we are together and then we are no longer together, but at the European level these rivalries need to be put aside ”continues Le Pen.

If he wins the French presidential elections scheduled for the spring, the president of the Rassemblement has stated that he will go to Brussels “to restore the sovereignty of the nations”. “We are broadening the spectrum of political forces that have a common vision on these issues, as is already the case of Matteo Salvini in Italy. We do not want to replace the current single model with another one that is the same for everyone. Each nation will be able to make autonomous choices and will regain its freedom ”he underlines. The other measures, if he were to enter the Elysée, will be “immediately a referendum on immigration, with a modification of the Constitution to guarantee the primacy of French law over international law”. Then, second priority, purchasing power. “The French are overwhelmed by compulsory expenses, bills and a full tank of petrol and I will lower the VAT on energy from 20% to 5.5%” explains Le Pen.

As for the ‘right-wing’ challenger Eric Zemmour, for Marine Le Pen “he just adds brutality and provocation to our vision. It does not offer solutions but controversies, and people are already getting tired ”. “Paradoxically” his presence “plays in my favor”, continues Le Pen, “because thanks to Zemmour the French are understanding that my positions are reasonable, even if firm”.
