He should have the skills you will need in the long run. which we will pay for our entire career and retirement.”

In an interview given 20 minutes, Marine Le Pen claims it is “a real scandal” and translates “a vision of the deconstruction of the state”. Similar vocabulary for Eric Zemmour, who denounced this morning on from right to left “state scandal” and assured that “he would not turn to consulting firms” in the event of the president’s victory. The same commitment for Fabien Roussel, guest in the morning France Inter. Adrien Quatennens, coordinator of France Insoumise, also called the McKinsey case a “scandal”.

Tackle against the “tandem”. In Furas (Charente-Maritime), Emmanuel Macron adopted the concept of “environmental planning” from Jean-Luc Mélenchon (LFI). He defended his report on ecological transition and pledged his intention to pursue his ecological transition policy. He specifically mentioned France’s dependence on Russian gas and oil, believing that “our responsibility is to eventually succeed in getting out of this dependence on hydrocarbons that we do not produce, which is gas and oil, to emit less.” To do this, he believes that “the key is the electrification of all our means.”“.

He took advantage of this trip to attack the “far-right tandem” Zemmours-Les Pens, deploring the simplification of the “far right”. Eric Zemmour was the first to react: “There is no tandem or extreme right. There is a president who does nothing, says nothing, thinks nothing and stakes his entire re-election on the Marine Pen final.” The latter also responded to the outgoing president: “He avoids debate and makes irresponsible remarks for lack of arguments regarding my unity project and the national interest.”

In an interview on Parisianformer prime minister Édouard Philippe also stated, “Of course Marine Le Pen can win”, believing she had succeeded in softening her image and fearing strong abstention.
