For him, the head of the RN can “no longer support this individual” who “tramples on honor”.
LREM candidate Denis Thuriot blasted the RN’s “ignominy” on Facebook. The outgoing region president Marie-Guite Dufay (PS) lambasted a “lack of respect” and the EELV candidate Stéphanie Modde the “contempt” of the RN “for the agricultural world”.
