At the end of January, the president of the National Rally Marine Le Pen, also a presidential candidate, had judged “brutal, violent”, that Marion Maréchal is considering joining Eric Zemmour in the race for the Elysée. The former Front National deputy then told the Figaro what “leaned for Eric Zemmour” but there was also “a family matter” with his aunt.
