Presidential 2022: Marine Le Pen at the Louvre today to launch her campaign with “a solemn declaration”

Marine Le Pen is preparing to officially launch her presidential campaign this Saturday, January 15 with a “solemn declaration” from the esplanade of the Louvre, in Paris. A strategic place carefully chosen by the candidate of the National Rally since this forecourt had welcomed Emmanuel Macron and his supporters during his speech on the evening of his election in May 2017.

While the Omicron wave forced her to postpone her first major campaign meeting to February 5, initially scheduled for today in Reims (Marne), the RN candidate therefore chose a highly symbolic place to set up the match with the current head of state.

Already recorded as a three-minute video, his statement will be broadcast at noon on all his social networks.

This speech will also launch the “5,000 markets” operation during which Marine Le Pen, her spokespersons and her activists will criss-cross France to meet the French. Indeed, from February, the National Rally plans to send a bus in the colors of the party to each region of the country in order to broadcast the candidate’s campaign throughout the territory.

A fragile challenger position to be consolidated

In the meantime, the forecourt of the Louvre, where the quinquennium (of Emmanuel Macron) began”, we underline at the RN, will constitute for her a platform to “fix the main orientations of her project” and “launch her countryside”. This with the barely veiled objective of trying to convince so as not to be overwhelmed on his right by the candidate of the Republicans, Valérie Pécresse, and especially Eric Zemmour who has arisen in the campaign.

In an OpinionWay – Kéa Partners poll for Les Echos and Radio Classique published this Thursday, January 13, Marine Le Pen is credited with 18% of voting intentions in the first round of the presidential election, behind Emmanuel Macon with 25%, but ahead of Valérie Pécresse ( 17%) and Eric Zemmour (13%). An advance, certainly, but a fragile advance.

Also on the agenda, the RN candidate will hold a press conference on Europe this Tuesday, January 18, the day before the Head of State’s speech in Strasbourg, on the occasion of the French presidency of the European Union.
