Morbihan, Ille-et-Vilaine and Manche: in three departments, young LRs slammed the door of their section to mark their disagreement with the management on the party line.

", explains this Monday a collective of young people Les Républicains de la Manche who "
leaves the party today
Already on Thursday March 23, the young LRs of Ille-et-Vilaine had voted to dissolve their section, deploring, in a press release, that Les Républicains had become “the little
telegraphers of Anglo-Saxon liberalism

the dissolution of the local movement
" after returning their cards.
Motion of censure
The protesters notably criticize the management for its refusal to vote for the motion of censure against the government: "
The Republicans have definitively detached themselves from the people (...) and therefore cannot be the heirs of Gaullism
", summarize the young LRs of the Morbihan in a press release.
In the party, we relativize these dissidences which remain a minority among the hundred sections of young people.

” of LR to “
come to work with us

," he said, reaffirming that LR is "
the only alternative voice
" in the political landscape.
