Legislative Elections in Var: at Sébastien Soulé’s (RN), between disappointment and forced smile

On Rue Gimelli in Toulon, the low sun of this late Sunday afternoon forces Sébastien Soulé’s supporters to take out their sunglasses. For some, they will hide the few tears that flowed when the national results were announced at around 8 p.m.

A sigh of despair, some half-hearted applause and then, finally, and after a speech of remobilization by Franck Giletti – “We are on a dynamic. We hoped for more, but it remains a victory” a few smiles. A bit forced.

“Ready to commit behind Lavalette”

This is because the setback is dry on the accounting level for the RN at the level of the 1st constituency of Var.But the number of votes cast in our favour is huge.”, positive Sébastien Soulé.

“The barrage worked perfectly”, regrets his deputy Pierre Charron. Stuck between the buffet bar and the public highway, Inès and Tom, 21 and 22 years old, chat with Laure Lavalette’s daughter. And express their “disappointment”. “Yes, it is a step further. But how many more dramas will it take before the French wake up?? We can still see that political manipulation is working at full capacity.”​​

In front of “the republican arch”a positive attitude is essential.Something was born with this election, hammers Sébastien Soulé. Faced with a phantom candidate and a union of dishonor, we were able to obtain a good score. I am very happy.”

A mood that, over the course of the evening and glasses of fruit juice, wins over the thirty or so sympathizers. Smiles emerge. Laughter rings out.

The focus is even on 2026 and the municipal elections.My commitment was not a one-time thing, assures Sébastien Soulé. In any case, I hope so. I am ready to commit to Laure Lavalette.”
