Downward polls. If until now Marine Le Pen was ahead of Eric Zemmour, the most recent Ipsos-Sopra Steria poll for franceinfo and The Parisian Today-in-France now places them tied with 14% of voting intentions. The RN candidate loses three points while Eric Zemmour gains two. Valérie Pécresse moves into second position with 16.5%, and Emmanuel Macron remains in the lead with 24%.
Missing sponsorships. Presidential candidates have until March 4 to secure the 500 endorsements needed to run. For the RN, the account is far from good. On February 3, the Constitutional Council had received only 35 signatures in favor of Marine Le Pen. If the National Rally claims 430 promelected esses locaux, there is less than a month to find the remaining 70 referrals.
Remuneration questioned. While Marine Le Pen stepped back from her position as president of the RN during the campaign, and Jordan Bardella replaces her, the candidate still receives the remuneration associated with this position, revealed Release Friday. “It’s not compensation, it’s compensation”a “lump-sum reimbursement of costs” that she touches as“leading actress of the movement”, explained Jordan Bardella, questioned about it on BFMTV on Monday. He admitted that he was acting “voluntarily”.
