8h55: For Rousseau, Zemmour “should not even be in this presidential campaign”
At the microphone of France Inter, Sandrine Rousseau returned to the degradation of her home by the support of Eric Zemmour. Stickers bearing the image of the Reconquest candidate have been affixed to the facade and the front door of his accommodation. “It is not possible to intimidate political opponents at their home”, asserts the president of the political council of Yannick Jadot
“I don’t have to endure this intimidation in the middle of the night, this covering of the front of my house with stickers of a candidate who is anything but a Democratic candidate,” she adds. He was convicted of racism, he shouldn’t even be in this presidential campaign, his place is not there. You cannot be represented in France by a person convicted of racist remarks. It is unworthy. “
8:45 am: “We need women who reach the highest positions”, underlines Rousseau
“It is completely abnormal that there has never been a woman President of the Republic, President of the Senate, President of the National Assembly, and that in all the Prime Ministers that we have known, there is no have only one woman, Edith Cresson ”, maintains Sandrine Rousseau, invited to the microphone of France Inter. “It says how much the political system is locked,” she regrets. “We need women who reach the highest positions, the presidency of the Republic is not the only function to be feminized”, adds the president of the political council of Yannick Jadot.
8:33 am: “In dispersed order, we do not reach the second round, we are going into the wall”, estimates Rousseau
Guest of France Inter, Sandrine Rousseau, president of the political council of the campaign of Yannick Jadot, underlines that the left “in dispersed order”, “does not reach the second round”. “We are going into the wall,” she laments. While remaining abstract on the organization of a primary, hated by its candidate. “The only thing I’m saying is that we can’t stay in scattered order like that and we need a team. […] It is time for us to talk to each other and find solutions. The primary is a means, the objective is union. There are other ways of agreeing to unite. “
8:14 am: Music professionals mock the lack of gauges in campaign meetings
The meetings of candidates ahead of the presidential election are not affected by the measures announced by Prime Minister Jean Castex on Monday, in particular by the gauges of a maximum of 2,000 people indoors and 5,000 people outdoors. Music professionals are ironic about the situation. Julien Doré, for example, shared a photo on his Instagram account, replacing the inscription “In concert” by “In meeting” for the dates of his tour. “I present myself as President of the Republic”, laughs Eddy de Pretto on Twitter.
7.45 am: No vaccination pass or gauges during campaign meetings
The executive announced on Monday new measures to deal with the outbreak of the Omicron variant without going until the curfew on December 31 or postponing the start of the school year. “Large gatherings will be limited to a gauge of 2,000 people indoors and 5,000 people outdoors,” including in sports arenas, said Jean Castex. This measure will not, however, concern the meetings of presidential candidates.
In addition, if the vaccination pass should be implemented from January 15 – if it is adopted by Parliament – the device will not be compulsory to attend meetings of contenders at the Elysee Palace.
7:35 am: Le Pen, Poutou, Zemmour … The candidates for the presidential election castigate the turn of the sanitary screw
Several opposition figures, led by Marine Le Pen, on Monday denounced “punitive measures” regarding the new restrictions announced by the executive to curb the outbreak of Covid-19 linked to the very contagious variant Omicron. The RN presidential candidate quickly blasted “punitive measures that make no sense”, calling on Twitter to “renounce the health / vaccination pass”.
“We promised (the French) a return to normal life with the vaccine. Today, they live under the permanent threat of new restrictions ”, mocked Ms. Le Pen, calling for“ common sense measures ”, such as“ recalling suspended caregivers (and) reopening closed beds ”.
Same story with Eric Zemmour. “No standing coffee, no popcorn in the cinema, no crisps on the train: the government’s new health policy is even crazier than the old one,” said the far-right candidate.
“Sanctions, prohibitions, obligations, but still no means and no strategy to test, especially at school, money for the hospital, requirement for the lifting of patents, the only way to avoid new variants”, said meanwhile writes Philippe Poutou, candidate of the New Anti-Capitalist Party, on Twitter.
The Lutte Ouvrière candidate Nathalie Arthaud also deplored that the government did not mention Monday evening “the human resources necessary for the hospital”.
