As the legislative elections approach, Emmanuel Macron motivated his troops during a great training day, this Tuesday, May 10. Very quickly, the President of the Republic imposed himself as the leader of the majority, to the chagrin of the invested candidates.
Is this the return of Jupiter? After winning the keys to the Élysée Palace, Emmanuel Macron is ready to do anything to win a large number of constituencies during these next legislative elections. To put all the chances on the side of the macronists, the President of the Republic thus invited the candidates of the majority to a training day at the Docks d’Aubervilliers, this Tuesday, May 10. Although he does not wish to be “the president of a camp or party”Brigitte Macron’s husband endorsed the suit of “leader of the presidential majority” to motivate his troops, as revealed by the Parisian. An attitude that has somewhat annoyed his supporters. “Controlling everything is always the same” lamented a Walker with the daily.
During his opening speech, Emmanuel Macron recalled that “everything proceeds from him and for him”. Anxious to win the majority of seats in the National Assembly, the Head of State played the schoolmaster by providing many advice to the invested candidates. “On stage, the tenant of the Élysée distributes the elements of language and tactical advice”details The Parisian. Therefore, the former Budget Minister invited them “to seek out those who have formed the basis of our electorate”. And for good reason. The race for constituencies promises to be tough. His party founded in 2016 will face the New Popular Ecological and Social Union led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon. However, it will take more to destabilize “the coach” LREM. “You must not be intimidated by those who would like to replay in the legislative elections what was decided in the presidential election”. Still as offensive, the politician launched yet another spade at the head of France Insoumise, determined to impose cohabitation. It remains to be seen whether this tactic will be as profitable as in the presidential election…
Emmanuel Macron: alone in charge of the country?
Re-elected as head of the country with 58.55% of the votes, Emmanuel Macron wishes to set up “a new method” to complete his second term. And to achieve the many challenges of its electoral program, the Head of State would decide almost alone and in the greatest secrecy the list of majority candidates for the legislative elections and the formation of its future government. Behavior that would have irritated some members of his close guard during the Council of Ministers on May 4. “We are in total fog”testified one of them in the columns of the Parisian the day after the inauguration of the Head of State. And to add: “Everything happens at the Élysée and nothing filters. It’s the return of Jupiter and his lightning“.
