Established and married in the Lyon region for thirty years, Sara Green, 60, applied for and obtained dual Franco-British nationality in 2018. This morning, she voted at the La Mulatière town hall office, with concern. “I told my three daughters that we would leave if the extreme right came to power. But I wonder where we will go?”wonders this communications executive, with the piquant British irony. She voted three times in one week, twice in France, once by proxy in the constituency of her last English home, south of London.

“After Brexit and Johnson, the far right is also on the rise in England, it’s crazy”said Sara Green. In the 12e constituency of Rhône, south of Lyon, less than 5% of the votes in the first round separated the three candidates qualified for the three-way race in the second round. Coming second, Cyrille Isaac-Sibille, outgoing deputy of the presidential majority, did not want to withdraw, while the extreme right is lying in wait. Leading in the first round, the environmentalist candidate Lucie Gaillot Durand, a doctor by profession, focused her campaign on the fight against chemical pollutants, hoping to escape the rise of the extreme right. “People here complain a lot, if they knew the situation in England they would complain less!”s’amuse Sara.
