POLITICS – Éric Ciotti may not appreciate the message. After the announcement of the results of the second round of the legislative elections this Sunday, July 7 and the surprise third place of the National Rally, the X account (ex-Twitter) of the Republicans teased the president of the right-wing party.

The Alpes-Maritimes MP had caused an earthquake by announcing after the dissolution of the National Assembly that he had formed an alliance between Les Républicains and Rassemblement National for the legislative elections. His decision had been rejected by a section of LR, which had asked him to leave.

But Eric Ciotti literally clung to his seat. Just before a political bureau of LR executives to act on his exclusion, he locked himself in the party premises, Place du Palais Bourbon, in Paris. The astonishing scene of the LR president barricaded in his stronghold made the rounds of the media.

“Don’t be an idiot Eric”

Another image that has circulated a lot: that of a man calling on Éric Ciotti through a megaphone to surrender. “Eric, don’t be an idiot. Please Eric, come down calmly. Don’t be an idiot Eric. If you come down now there will be no reprisals.”he said. This man would in fact be a member of the show C to You on France 5, more precisely from Bertrand Chameroy’s team who deciphers current events with humor in the “ABC” column.

In any case, it is this video that the community manager (CM) of the Les Républicains account, to which Éric Ciotti no longer has access since his alliance with the RN, brought out when the results of the second round of the legislative elections were announced, as you can see above.

Because if the one who is still president of LR – the administrative justice invalidated his exclusion from the party – was re-elected in the Alpes-Maritimes, the National Rally, which expected to come out on top in the elections, is finally third behind the left-wing coalition the New Popular Front and the presidential majority Ensemble.

The RN will therefore considerably increase its number of deputies in the Assembly, but it will be far from an absolute majority and Jordan Bardella will not be appointed Prime Minister. And it is not the handful of LR deputies supported by the RN, who followed Éric Ciotti, who will be able to help it achieve this much-hoped-for majority.
