The representatives of the political movements of the macronie announced that they had reached an agreement for a union of investiture for the legislative elections, in the form of a confederation bringing together Renaissance (ex-LREM La République En Marche), Horizons and the MoDem called “Together “.
This week therefore, after the removal of some differences, the list has been lengthened “officially“. Ally of the presidential majority, Horizons, the party of Édouard Philippe, obtained 58 candidates for the legislative elections and the MoDem of François Bayrou will have between 101 and 110. Renaissance should for its part present around 400 candidates. The Franco-Moroccan Zineb El Rhazoui would have been invested as the “Renaissance” candidate (ex-LREM) in the 9th constituency of French people living abroad (Maghreb and West Africa) to the great displeasure of Ahmed Eddaraz who seemed to have the favors of the prognosis for the nomination to this constituency to replace M’Jid El Guerrab disqualified him for legal setbacks that could lead him to taste the straw of prison.
Except that here it is Zineb El Rhazoui who would have been chosen to do this. The latter, as a reminder, a regular on TV sets had often made many controversial remarks in the past. In 2019, she notably called on the police to “shoot live ammunition” on suburban delinquents. What had earned him moreover harsh criticism on the networks and the often cynical tweets on Twitter have continued to flow.
In February when she announced her rallying to Macron, it was a huge disappointment for many far-right French citizens who had a semblance of sympathy for her and let her know through comments that were as hurtful as they were vitriolic. The former Charlie Hebdo journalist, who lives between Paris and Dubai, has often drawn the wrath of her detractors, following her remarks on Islam and has been the subject of death threats on social networks.
For Ahmed Eddaraz (36) who had already announced his candidacy for the Legislative elections from June 12 and 19 to mid-April, it is a huge disappointment if Emmanuel Macron’s party, now called Renaissance, formalizes what some already consider like an open secret. But yet it has not yet been said whether Ahmed Eddaraz fell under the spell of Emmanuel Macron and his wife, “full of conviction and discretion, hardworking”, will withdraw his candidacy or not. Also, he had hoped, he said in an interview with the Millau.fr newspaper ” that they recognized a form of talent or a work force in me when I was part of their campaign cabinet “.
However, he had a presentiment of this scenario because in a recent press release, Ahmed Eddarraz, candidate for the LREM or rather Renaissance nomination, in the 9th constituency of French people living abroad, worried about a possible “parachuting” on this ground. by journalist Zineb El Rhazoui. In particular, he mentioned this: The French established on this constituency deserve better than to be considered, by the ambitious, as a stepping stone “, according to the Parisian.fr.
It is as if one would say that politics has a reason that reason does not know. Ingratitude when you hold us! As a reminder, the ninth foreign constituency (out of 11) covers the Maghreb and part of West Africa, for nearly 180,000 French nationals registered in the consular registers.
