Present yesterday in Béziers (Hérault) alongside the mayor Robert Ménard for his first campaign trip of the year, Marine Le Pen is expected this Saturday in Trèbes and Carcassonne, before taking the road to Perpignan.
In the midst of a debate on the health crisis, the candidate of the National Rally will try to put on the table her favorite subjects of immigration and Islamism, in particular by honoring the memory of Colonel Arnaud Beltrame.
The objective for the headliner of the National Rally is clear: to bring the debate back to other priority themes in his eyes so as not to play Emmanuel Macron’s game.
“Is Emmanuel Macron using the health crisis to go into the countryside?” The answer is yes. So, is it useful or effective to campaign on the health crisis? The answer is no, ”she also indicated during her trip to Béziers on Friday.
To help her in this campaign, which is already shaping up to be tough, Marine Le Pen will in any case be able to count on Robert Ménard, the mayor of Béziers, who announced that he would grant her his signature in the race for sponsorships for the next presidential election.
Thoughts for the victims of the terrorist attacks #CharlieHebdo. For seven years, freedom of expression has declined, Islamism has continued to kill on our soil. It is time to fight this ideology with force, to control our borders and to control immigration. #7janvier2015 pic.twitter.com/Jlysc5Zg49

While yesterday, she began to rely on her fundamentals again, in particular by posting a tweet to pay tribute to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack, seven years to the day after the fact, or by visiting the construction site of the future Samuel-Paty school in Béziers, its move to Aude will therefore take on a similar color today.
An MLP speech in the morning
The high point of his trip for the day: his arrival in Trèbes on the stele, installed on the town hall square, of Colonel Arnaud Beltrame, victim of Islamist terrorism, to lay a wreath there at 2:30 p.m. In the morning, according to the political service of CNEWS, she will also give a press conference, scheduled for 11:30, after meeting young farmers and olive growers.
During this speech, she could be tempted to target her main opponent, Eric Zemmour, the candidate for Reconquest! expected, this Saturday, in Sables-d’Olonne (Vendée) to defend in particular alongside Philippe de Villiers the statue of Saint-Michel, which could be dismantled after a decision rendered by the administrative court of Nantes on behalf of the secularism.
History does not yet say whether the match between the two figures of the strong right will continue on Sunday. Still, Marine Le Pen will complete her trip to Occitan lands in Perpignan.
In the prefecture of the Pyrénées-Orientales department, which fell into the hands of the RN during the last municipal elections, the party candidate will be welcomed by the mayor Louis Alliot. With the manifest desire to appear as a true “state woman”.
