It’s a nice move from Eric Ciotti and Jordan Bardella. In the first constituency of Savoie, the candidate of the Republicans and the National Rally will be none other than Typhanie Degois, deputy of La République en Marche from 2017 to 2022. A surprising rally which shows the diversity of profiles interested in the union of the rights proposed by Ciotti and Bardella. “I have always defended a right-wing line within the majority. For better or worse since this is the reason why I did not run again in 2022she confides to the JDD. Today, we have a historic opportunity to form a right-wing majority in the National Assembly. »

The former MP will face her successor and former Secretary of State for Digital, Marina Ferrari. In a press release that the JDD was able to consult, Typhanie Degois calls for a radical change of framework: “We have to try a new path. There is a historic chance, on June 30, to put an end to years of immobility and laxity, to put together a real right-wing program, to straighten out France and restore order to the streets and to the accounts. public. »

Typhanie Degois, who began her political career at the UDI before joining Les Jeunes with Macron in the spring of 2015, ran in the legislative elections of June 2017. She was elected deputy for the 1st constituency of Savoie, beating the outgoing Dominique Dord (Les Républicains) in the second round with 50.76% of the votes. At only twenty-four years old, she was the youngest LREM candidate in the legislative elections and the second youngest deputy of the 15th legislature of the Fifth Republic, after Ludovic Pajot of the FN, elected in Pas-de-Calais.

During her mandate, Typhanie Degois sometimes took positions contrary to those of the macronie. In 2018, she asked for changes to the law on asylum and immigration. In 2019, its amendment proposing to experiment for two years with labeling indicating the method of breeding of eggs used as ingredients in food products was rejected by the Assembly. During the second confinement in October 2020, she opposed the closure of local businesses.

In 2021, she withdrew her signature from the bill to ban conversion therapy, although this law was adopted unanimously by the National Assembly. She also votes against the extension of the health pass, declaring herself in favor of vaccination but opposed to the creation of categories of citizens. In addition, she opposes the proposed law on euthanasia as well as the expansion of the PMA.

Seeing the presidential camp refusing to move towards the right, the young elected official gradually withdraws from the majority. She goes so far as not to openly support Emmanuel Macron’s candidacy in 2022, and to grant her sponsorship to Marine Le Pen, not to support her, but “to recognize its political anchoring in the opinion of the French”.
