“He had plenty of time to do it for seven years,” says Fabrice Leggeri in reaction to Emmanuel Macron’s letter addressed to the French, in which the latter assures that he wants to profoundly change the way of governing. “This is not the first time that Emmanuel Macron has told us that he understands,” sighs the new MEP from the National Rally. For the former director of the European Coast Guard and Border Guard Agency, the President of the Republic refused to draw the consequences of the election of a relative majority in 2022. “I believe that the French are not not fooled and that they know that it is a sleight of hand,” judges Fabrice Leggeri, emphasizing Emmanuel Macron’s record.

“ [La démission d’Emmanuel Macron] is the cartridge that was not used »

Despite Emmanuel Macron’s promise, the central bloc hardly seems capable of forming an absolute majority around him. An equally uncertain majority for the National Rally which has already made it known that Jordan Bardella would not become Prime Minister if the RN did not have at least 289 deputies. “To act you must have an absolute majority, the experience of the last two years has shown that Emmanuel Macron’s governments have governed with 49 paragraph 3,” recalls Fabrice Leggeri. Used 23 times during the previous legislature, the use of article 49 3 illustrates the difficulties linked to the exercise of executive power in a situation of relative majority. If the RN became the first political force at the Palais Bourbon, without being able to govern, the situation could become inextricable. “Marine Le Pen estimated, without calling for a resignation, that there are several institutional possibilities for resolving crises. [La démission d’Emmanuel Macron] is the cartridge that was not used,” points out the RN spokesperson. In his letter, the President of the Republic clearly ruled out the possibility of leaving the Elysée before May 2024. “The call of the RN is to say that an absolute majority is needed to be able to act,” continues Fabrice Leggeri.

The RN wants to finance a return to pension reform by eliminating state medical aid

Accused by Gabriel Attal of “refusing obstacles” and going back on campaign promises as the first round of voting draws closer, Fabrice Leggeri instead defends a change of situation. Jordan Bardella must also present his program to journalists from 11 a.m. this Monday. The case of the repeal of the pension reform is the subject of several uncertainties within the Lepéniste party. There question of financing the reform has largely modified the party’s flame speech on the subject.

Fabrice Leggeri mentions the possibility of leaving at 60 for people who started their professional activity before the age of 20 and leaving at 62 with 42 annuities for those who entered the job market after the age of 20. Attacked on the cost of this measure, Fabrice Leggeri estimates it at 1.6 billion euros. “We note that these costs are very close to state medical aid,” points out the former leader of Frontex who intends to eliminate this system allowing everyone to access certain care.

While national preference remains the RN’s priority, Emmanuel Macron’s presidency appears to be disrupting the National Rally’s plans to execute its program. Regarding the abolition of land rights, desired by the RN, Fabrice Leggeri recalls that in “Mayotte, the government made this proposal”. However, the risk of unconstitutionality of the measure remains significant. “Ultimately, our wish is that Marine Le Pen is elected President of the Republic, the normal calendar is 2027”, assures the spokesperson for the RN who concedes that by then the RN will implement “first elements”.
