Le Pen wants to put the energy crisis “voluntarily or by force” on Parliament’s menu
During a visit to her stronghold of Hénin-Beaumont (Pas-de-Calais) on Sunday, where she was celebrating her political comeback, Marine Le Pen promised to put the current energy crisis on Parliament’s agenda “voluntarily or by force”.
She warned of “rationing, restrictions, load shedding, shortages” due to difficulties in obtaining gas supplies and electricity generation and regretted that Parliament had rejected her proposal for an extraordinary session on energy.
“It is an immediately important issue, but we MEPs are confronted with technical unemployment,” she underlined. She castigated the “gadget” she believes represents the National Council for Refoundation (CNR), formed on Thursday by Mr Macron and “some of his friends to pretend to be interested in the issue”.
She hammered that the RN would put the topic of “electricity price explosion” “voluntarily or by force” at the center of the parliamentary debate.
Heating, swimming pools, lighting, travel: “Everything that we take for granted can be questioned,” she warned, pointing to a “stressful and humiliating step backwards in the country,” a consequence of “old political errors” and not the war in the Ukraine.
She also positioned herself on the campaign to succeed her as party leader while two candidates, Jordan Bordella and Louis Aliot, were campaigning this weekend.
“There are two candidates … of quality,” she estimated, emphasizing having spent “many years of fighting together” with both of them.
“I remain completely neutral,” she assured, leaving “it to the members to choose the one that seems most efficient to them”.
She also wished the right-wing extremist polemicist Eric Zemmour “good wind”, who on Sunday evening has to finish a summer school that is crucial for the future of his movement.
