The head of the LR list in the European elections in June has been increasing the number of meetings with representatives of the agricultural sectors since the start of the annual competition.


Pavilion 1 of the Agricultural Show regained its tranquility on Sunday morning, twenty-four hours after the clashes between demonstrators and the police.

sorry 

” for the clashes and pointed out the responsibility of Emmanuel Macron.

“ 

The role of the president is to unite us, not to divide us

“ 

How can we not hear the anger of the demonstrators when we put them on the same level as small groups who attack their farms? 

“, asked the right-wing candidate.

The allusion targets the two Elysian advisors who spoke to the press about participation by the radical environmentalist collective Earth Uprisings in a major debate on the first day of the Agricultural Show, before backpedaling.

The news angered farmers and triggered a threat of boycott from the FNSEA and the Young Farmers.

pyromaniac firefighter”

“arsonist firefighter”

The probable appointment of the leader of the centrist Renew group in the European Parliament, Valérie Hayer, to lead the Macronist list was described as “

against the main texts in favor of agriculture”

in the European Parliament.

More than three months before the European election, which will take place on June 9, the head of the LR list assures that he is not worried about his position, he who is given around 8% in the opinion surveys.
