En this anniversary period of the mive entry of the National Rally (RN) into the National embly, Sébastien Chenu ticks boxes in his head. “Incarnate the opposition”checked. “Do not be sectarian”checked. “Imposing our subjects in the public debate”, checked. Despite a “tie strategy”, a “standardization strategy”, four years will not be too long to fulfill two other objectives set at the start of the legislature by Marine Le Pen: to forge expertise on new topics and to bring out media figures. On these two axes, the work is far from complete.
“On all hard subjects, the regal, which is divisive, our identity is very strong. On ecology, education, housing, health, perhaps more consensual subjects, we must lay down the first ideological milestones, from which our proposals will flow, believes Mr. Chenu. Everything is to be done, I find it pleasantly stimulating. » The RN often claims to offer a complete program; he realizes, to the test of the National embly, that he lacks both expertise and doctrine.
And this, despite the age of the housing crisis, medical desertification and the climate alert rating. “There are no subjects where we have been bad, defends Bruno Bilde, MP for Pas-de-Calais. But, honestly, what has fascinated the population for a year? Only the pension reform. Now that it’s behind us, we have four years to bring up new subjects. It is a little early to take stock. »
In recent weeks, the deputy of Aude Frédéric Falcon, a former real estate investment adviser, has set up a working group on housing. Andréa Kotarac, collaborator of Mme Le Pen at the Palais-Bourbon and founder, with Hervé Juvin, of the small movement Les Localistes, is responsible for updating the environmental program of the RN, with “Les Horaces”, this mysterious group of anonymous experts advising the party of far right. Another study group was set up on the theme of water. Health is the last project, which should be coordinated, according to Sébastien Chenu, by a personality from civil society working in this sector and already ociated with the RN.
“There are too many who read their paper”
Another priority for Marine Le Pen, the incarnation of a “National Rally government” is slipping. After a year in the embly, only Sébastien Chenu and Jean-Philippe Tanguy have penetrated the walls of the Palais-Bourbon, as well as Grégoire de Fournas, who rose to fame for his “Let him return to Africa!” ». The two voices of the group on pension reform, Laure Lavalette (Var) and Thomas Ménagé (Loiret), are also cited as satisfactions, as well as a newcomer to politics, the deputy of Eure Kévin Mauvieux.
