From these silences we do not simply want to hear the reason. In politics, you sometimes have to know not to be on all subjects, not to hammer out a word ten times a day to convince yourself that you are defending it well. “
8:30 am: “We’ll get there, but we’re not there yet”, Sébastien Chenu says about sponsorship
Sébastien Chenu, spokesperson for Marine Le Pen, returned to the microphone of Europe 1 on the difficulties encountered by the candidate of the National Rally to gather the 500 sponsorships of elected officials necessary to stand for the presidential election.
“We hope to obtain them but it is difficult, reiterates the member for the North. It is for us, for [Eric] Zemmour, for [Jean-Luc] Mélenchon. It is difficult because the anonymity is not guaranteed to the mayors. We know who signs for whom, so it’s difficult. Mayors are under pressure that is unbearable, especially in agglomerations, where city presidents tell them: ‘If you sponsor this or that candidate, you will wait for your grant.’ We’ll get there, but we’re not there yet. “

He told us: ‘At Christmas, I will be in front of the so-called classic right-wing candidate and in front of Marine Le Pen, and I myself will be able to unite the two electorates.’ Eric Zemmour is not in front of these two candidates, he is third. His bet is not held. It is a candidacy that divides the national camp and comes to freeze voices that could refer to Marine Le Pen. “

This does not prevent barrier gestures, physical distancing… We have just re-established gauges that will create financial problems for the culture sector, which will have to be supported even more. These decisions do not make sense for health and are very expensive ”. On Monday, Jean Castex announced the return of the gauges to limit the spread of Covid-19: 2,000 people maximum indoors, 5,000 outdoors.
