The results of the second round of the legislative elections will be known from 8 p.m. on Sunday, July 7, 2024. Lisieux (Calvados), the New Popular Front calls for a gathering from 6 p.m. on Place Mitterrand.

A gathering “against the extreme right” and “to show that the left remains united and present in our 3rd constituency”, indicates Olivier Truffautcandidate of the New Popular Front, who finished third in the first round of the legislative elections in the constituency of Lisieux/Falaise.

The socialist called on his voters to vote for Jérémie Patrier-Leitus (Together, presidential majority) in the second round.

On June 15, 2024, a first rally “against the far right” brought together around 200 people in the city center.

The RN candidate reacts

“I appeal for calm and appeasement,” reacted Edouard Fauvagecandidate of the National Rally who came first in the first round:

“I believe that in a democratic country, and when we claim to belong to the Republic, we respect the vote of the citizens, whatever it may be. This is the reason why I would never have called for a demonstration if Mr. Patrier-Leitus won. We must respect the vote of the sovereign people.”

Edouard Fauvage

Furthermore, Édouard Fauvage “rejects the term extreme right”: “There is nothing dangerous or extreme in the alliance that we are forming between the LR and the RN. We have a program of industrial recovery, of repeal of the pension reform. We are going to heal all the social and economic failures of the last 7 years, and I think that the left could actually find itself in the project that we are presenting.”

The National Rally is classified as far right by the Ministry of the Interior. A classification validated by the Council of State.
