Legislative: in Paris, Sandrine Rousseau will face another Sandrine Rousseau


Sandrine Rousseau, candidate of the Mouvement de la Ruralité (LMR, an offshoot of Hunting, Fishing, Nature and Traditions) presents herself expressly in the 9th district of Paris against the candidate EELV.

"It's a kind of coincidence of homonymy that we did not want to let pass

", recognizes in


Yannick Villardier, LMR manager for Ile-de-France.

The Movement of Rurality (LMR, emanation of Hunting, fishing, nature and traditions) presents its candidate Sandrine Rousseau on purpose in the 9th district of Paris, during the legislative elections of June 12 and 19, facing the much better known ecofeminist candidate , inserted at EELV.

“our Sandrine Rousseau is not Parisian, but these elections authorize the candidatures come from other areas.

We have fun pitting someone who is attached to the rural world against someone who is very far from it

,” continues Yannick Villardier.

This Norman, in her fifties, is a childcare assistant.

If she does not hunt, she is close to this world and its traditions, via her spouse and her in-laws, we can read in



If she is therefore in favor of hunting, she assures that this theme will not be her

"heart of the campaign"


“My candidacy is very serious, centered on rurality

,” she defends.

Including in a capital like Paris?

Precisely, argues the Norman in the daily:

“There is a lot to say, to make understood in Paris, on fuel, the cost of living.

In the big cities, we are not aware that we, in the countryside, do not have public transport: I mean this remote, forgotten rurality.

Life is not always easy there, especially for mothers.


way of showing that she joins here the feminist concerns of her rival and namesake?


Legislative elections: understand everything in the ballot

The LMR candidate also wishes to mention school canteens, short circuits - her rival should agree here - and the defense of traditions - less here...

"I am also an activist for the defense of disabled people in rural areas, which are not taken into account.

I'm not here just for the show.

I am presenting myself in Paris, because there is a shortage of candidates”

, declares the candidate Normande, a novice in politics, but already broken with little murderous phrases:

“I am another proposal facing the other Sandrine Rousseau who is like all policies.

Fortunately, we write her texts, she is outside our reality.


To avoid causing trouble among voters - and assessors during the legislative elections, an LMR-CNPT symbol will be affixed to the ballot designating the rurality candidate Sandrine Rousseau.

Her Parisian rival, for her part, commented on the maneuver on her Twitter account with a pithy: “fatigue”.

In the Paris region, the Mouvement de la Ruralité, decidedly in a teasing mood, has also decided to play the homonymous card in another constituency.

In the 5th constituency of Seine-et-Marne, he thus presents his candidate Jacques Lemoine, head of the fishing federations of Ile-de-France, against the outgoing deputy LREM Patricia Lemoine, substitute for Franck Riester, described as "opposed on the hunt".
