On France 2, Xavier Bellamy as soon as once more criticizes the selection of the general public channel to prepare the Attal-Bardella debate

The day after a debate organized by France 2 between Gabriel Attal and Jordan Bardella, the top of the Republican record as soon as once more denounced, on Friday morning, its holding within the absence of the opposite events. ” The loser [de ce débat] it’s French democracy. The truth of this election is not at all this debate between Mr. Bardella and Mr. Attal, who is not even a candidate. he lambasted on the set of Telematin.

Already the evening before, on France 2, Mr. Bellamy had criticized the choice of the public channel. While he was invited – like Manon Aubry, Marie Toussaint and Marion Maréchal – to comment on this face-to-face in the second part of the evening, he admitted having “hesitated” future. “What happened is the sign of a fairly deep democratic crisis which is ultimately revealed in the scenario in which we witnessed. What makes it possible to organize this confrontation between these two people? How did you choose them? If we look at the polls, they should have at least invited Raphaël Glucksmann [troisième des intentions de vote] »Mr. Bellamy had estimated.

On the set of “Quatre Vérités” on France, this Friday morning, MEP LR recalled the balance of power in the European Parliament dominated by the right and the left, and where the liberals are a supporting force while the far right has no say in the matter. “The truth of the European debate is what will be built around the two political groups which structure parliamentary life, the European right, the EPP, and the European left of the social democrats”, he recalled. While he is very critical of the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, candidate of the European right for a new mandate in this position, Mr. Bellamy believes that “if you want France to exist in the European Parliament, the real issue is that we can strengthen ourselves within the European right”.

Five years after the victory of the RN list, already led by Mr. Bardella, in the European elections, the LR MEP then criticized the record of his far-right counterparts. “After five years we must learn the lessons from the mandate which is ending. five years ago the RN won. Look who did what, they didn’t move a comma in a single European text”he lamented, two weeks before the election.
