Last Tuesday, the former president of the National Front, reacted to the internal tensions within the National Rally and the party “Reconquest!”. He declared at the microphone of CNEWS that he was hostile to a possible rallying of Marion Maréchal alongside Eric Zemmour.
“It would be a disappointment, it would be a surprise honestly. Marion (Marshal) had said she was retiring from politics. She has all kinds of reasons to take care of her personal affairs, ”he had reacted.
For the record, Jean-Marie Le Pen had already been hospitalized in 2015. It was, at the time, a “heart problem”.
