In Bouches-du-Rhône, an eradicated LR candidate pronounces that he’ll vote within the second spherical for the various left candidate Hendrik Davi in opposition to the RN

Ambroise Malinconi, Republican candidate within the fifthe constituency of Bouches-du-Rhône, eradicated within the first spherical (5.13% of the vote), introduced in a press launch that he’ll vote within the second spherical for Hendrik Davi (numerous left, outgoing deputy of La France insoumise not reinvested by this get together), who got here second within the first spherical (24.44%) behind the candidate of the National Rally (RN) Franck Liquori (25.77%).

“Despite its facelift, the RN remains a party whose ideology is nationalist. Behind an open and patriotic posture towards the people that is attractive, the RN hides its security and freedom-killing program, contrary to republican principles. It lies to the working classes because its economic promises are not viable. And it gives no importance to the greatest crisis of our century: the climate and environmental crisis that is changing the face of the world,” writes Mr. Malinconi.

He additional notes that“At the local level, the RN is showing a lack of respect for citizens: no poster of its candidate has been stuck up in front of the polling stations, and his face does not even appear on the declarations of faith. The RN has refused to participate in any local debate.”

Mr. Davi, then again, “respects democracy and republican principles”in keeping with Mr. Malinconi, who pronounces that he’ll vote for him even when he doesn’t share his concepts, particularly on behalf of the “Gaullist values” to struggle in opposition to the intense proper.

At the departmental federation Les Républicains, contacted by our correspondent Gilles Rof, we’re assured that the president Laure-Agnès Caradec “did not give any instructions to his candidates”. “Ambroise Malinconi's approach is personal,” we’re assured.

In addition to this assist from Mr. Malinconi, Hendrik Davi advantages from the withdrawal of the official candidate of La France Insoumise, Allan Popelard, who got here third within the first spherical (23.32%). Mr. Popelard actually believes that“Hendrik Davi bears full responsibility for putting the far right in the lead” having competed together with his personal candidacy on the left, however, in his eyes, “It is out of the question to give the RN the slightest chance of winning a seat.”
