Speech by Jordan Bardella during the meeting to launch the National Rally campaign for the European elections, in Marseille, March 3, 2024.

There was a time when the National Front – FN, now National Rally (RN) – was tearing itself aside throughout the partitions of the Maison de la Chimie in Paris. In June 1997, Jean-Marie Le Pen castigated, on rue Saint-Dominique, these in his ranks who dreamed of electoral agreements with the RPR (Rassemblement pour la République) of Jacques Chirac: “We do not ally ourselves with forces that are in decay, we wait to pick up the debris. »

Twenty-seven years later, the room adjoining the National Assembly will witness the crude recovery by the far-right party of the legacy of the Gaullist party. Jordan Bardella, head of the RN list and big favorite in the next European elections, is organizing his “General States of Immigration” there on Tuesday March 26 in collaboration with the “RPR”; i.e. a model that has fallen into disuse and bought in 2022 by MP (RN) Franck Allisio.

Behind the synthetic co-organization of the occasion – ​​the “RPR” being to this point solely an empty ideological shell – the RN poses because the pure successor of the previous right-wing social gathering. Above all, it claims to comply with within the footsteps of an occasion organized on March 31 and 1er April 1990 in Villepinte (Seine-Saint-Denis) by Jacques Chirac's social gathering: the “Etats général de l'opposition”.

“The program of the RPR in the 1990s, at the time when the RPR was truly right-wing, is today the program of the National Rally, at least on the question of security and immigration”affirmed Jordan Bardella on the announcement of his personal convention, making certain that the RN was solely repeating the conclusions reached by the RPR on the finish of those “general states”. “The findings established in 1990 in Villepinte were tough but fairinsists Franck Allisio, but the right has stalled in the meantime, under pressure from the technostructure, Europe and the media. We will resume the work as it was stopped, but to apply it. »

Outline the RN program

In both form and substance, Jordan Bardella's “states general” threat being in contrast with their distant predecessors. Two small spherical tables are introduced by the RN, dedicated to “findings” then to “solutions” in entrance of the “migratory submergence”. All launched by Franck Allisio and concluded by Jordan Bardella, with the only ambition of setting out the guarantees defended on this space for years by Marine Le Pen. The organizers themselves anticipate that no programmatic additions will outcome from the assembly.
