The first round brought four candidates into position to remain in the 8th place next Sunday.e Rhône constituency, dominated by the RN and the NFP while neither the presidential camp nor the outgoing LR MP intend to withdraw for the time being.

The Figaro Lyon

Phones are getting hot in the 8e Rhône constituency for a few hours. The first round of the legislative election brought four candidates in a position to remain next Sunday in this rural territory called Beaujolais Vert, west of Lyon. Behind the RN at 33.5% of the vote and the PS candidate of the New Popular Front at 22.8%, neither the presidential camp nor the outgoing LR deputy of this right-wing stronghold intend to withdraw. Negotiations are underway, in vain for the moment, while the candidacies for the second round must be submitted Tuesday evening.

Modem mayor of Claveisolles, Dominique Despras (21.2%) plays the electoral advantage – 397 more votes – over his rival from the right (20.7%), Nathalie Serre. And the political positioning vis-à-vis the left. “Even if at the local level they call themselves social democrats, this is not the case for the parties and here the local business leaders tell me that they will not vote social democrat whatever happens,” This dairy producer, who was president of the Chamber of Agriculture and briefly vice-president of Laurent Wauquiez on the regional council, is needed. Nathalie Serre, who did not respond to our requests, can count on the support of Patrice Verchère, a former deputy for two and a half terms and still very much established in the western Rhone region where he was elected.

“Unacceptable” for the left, “suicidal” for the center

A situation “unacceptable” for Anne Reymbaut, the PS candidate. “We are facing candidates who do not respect the directives of their parties and do not understand the urgency of the situation.she fumes. A transfer of votes is possible, voters have republican convictions and we are not going to make a revolution”. And to point out the discipline that the PS candidate applies in the 9e neighboring constituency, that of Beaujolais. Arrived 3eJean-Henri Soumireu-Lartigue announced at Figaro to withdraw in favor of the outgoing LR, Alexandre Portier, beaten on Sunday by a close friend of Marion Maréchal.

The hypothesis of the quadrangular, possible as in a handful of French territories thanks to a strong participation (74% in this 8e constituency of the Rhône) thus seems to be taking shape in this Rhône countryside. An outcome “suicidal” for Dominique Despras. “A quadrangular risks making the RN pass”confirms Anne Reymbaut. And to offer the first RN seat in the history of the department to Jonathan Géry, a Lyon police officer new to politics.
