Campaigning within the North, Xavier Bertrand mocks Jordan Bardella's programmatic setbacks

He will not be a candidate for the legislative elections, however Xavier Bertrand is main the marketing campaign. “It’s stronger than me, I love it”, slips the president of the Hauts-de-France area. And not solely to help candidates who get together below the banner of the Republicans (LR).

On a farm in Renescure (North), the president of Nous France – his political motion – ​​invited himself amongst round twenty farmers to share a beer with them – “we are still in the district of the future city of beere [dont l’ouverture est prévue fin 2025] » –, but above all to defend his friend Jean-Pierre Bataille. Former member of the UMP and LR, the mayor of Steenvoorde is running for 15e constituency of the department with Valentin Belleval, his counterpart from Hazebrouck, as a pair and substitute.

The first refuses to be presented as a candidate supported by the presidential camp, but basically defends the rapprochement between “right-wing republicans” to beat the National Rally (RN) deputy elected in 2022, Pierrick Berteloot. “The choice here is Bataille or the RN, warned Xavier Bertrand to the farmers present. In life, there are people who fight like my friend Bataille, even if sometimes he is a pain, and those who do nothing, like the RN. »

Xavier Bertrand also reacted to The world to the indictment of three teenagers accused of rape and anti-Semitic violence in Courbevoie. “We have to go find those who put this poison of anti-Semitism in these kids. I think that anti-Semitism is a national scourge, that of society as a whole. There are parents, education, social networks, and we must apply the penalties of the penal code, which are quite harsh with minors, but never applied. We cannot continue like this, but, as on other subjects, it is not the extremes, the RN or LFI, who have the solutions”he estimates ten days earlier than the primary spherical of the legislative elections.
