According to Florie Cedolinová
In June, Laurence A little was a candidate for Reconquest on 1D constituency of Yvelines. Céline Jullié was a candidate for 2E. The latter was not available for this new campaign and the “base of the party” wanted a candidacy, Laurence Trochu decided to leave.
Especially since the causes of these new elections will not leave her indifferent.
There is a sense of political grunt that only adds to voter discontent. That is not our concept of politics. I don’t desert when there is a reason to defend.
Food and energy independence
The reason is the French, and for Laurence Trochu, the campaign topics have not changed from June to the beginning of the school year.
“They are all the more relevant in September, the candidate emphasizes. For example, the topic of our food and energy independence. Previous governments didn’t want nuclear power, abandoning French farmers by allowing free trade agreements (the last one was signed by Emmanuel Macron last June) which means half the contents of our plates are exported. The French have problems feeding themselves, taking care of themselves, keeping warm. All this is a consequence of the decisions of Macron’s governments and before him under the leadership of François Hollande. »
Why new elections?
The voters of the 2nd district of Yvelines were already called to the polls last June to elect their representative. In the first round, 11 candidates presented themselves, two qualified and in the end it was Jean-Noël Barrot (MoDem, presidential majority) who was re-elected with 64.27% of the vote against Maïté Carrive-Bedouani (Nupes) with 35.73%.
In July, Jean-Noël Barrot became the delegate of the minister responsible for the digital transition and telecommunications. Unable to combine this post with his position as deputy, he logically resigned in favor of his deputy, Anne Grignon. She officially became a member of parliament for the 2nd electoral district of Yvelines on August 7.
However, after the election, an appeal was filed on the grounds that Article 134 of the Electoral Act had not been complied with. This article states that “a candidate for the National Assembly cannot be replaced by a deputy, senator or replacement of a member of the Chamber of Deputies”.
However, Anne Grignon, mayor of Lévis-Saint-Nom and replacement for Jean-Noël Barrot, was second on the list of senators led by Martin Lévrier for En Marche in 2017. The latter was elected, making Anne Grignon his replacement in 2017 .the event of leaving the place.
Faced with the certainty that the Constitutional Council will cancel the elections in June 2022, Anne Grignon preferred to resign from her post of representative seven days after taking office. “This appeal was filed by a relative of the candidate who was defeated in the first round. His only purpose is to repeat the fight he has already lost twice, in 2017 and 2022, despite the choice of the voters, despite the communities that will have to bear the burden of organizing new elections, despite the democratic exercise. “, she underlined at the time.
This resignation thus triggered these legislative by-elections, on 2 and 9 October, to re-elect the deputy for the 2nd district of Yvelines.
Six candidates applied: Jean-Noël Barrot (MoDem, Renaissance), Maïté Carrive-Bedouani (Nupes), Pascal Thévenot (LR), Anne Jacqmin (RN), Laurence Trochu (Reconquest) and Pascal Casimir-Perrier (DVC).
Second theme for Laurence Trochu: the safety. “In France, there was a rape every 15 seconds in July (data from the Ministry of the Interior); Knife attacks are increasing… We have a problem with recognizing the work of our policemen, our gendarmes, our firefighters, who do not always have the means to defend themselves. »
As regards school, “The minister tells us that we have to pull everyone, so that the boys stop playing football and the girls hopscotch; but one out of two children entering the 6th grade cannot read! The school needs to go back to basics. »
