Éric Zemmour, Jean-Michel Blanquer, Aymeric Caron… The first round of the legislative elections is played in four days. Voters are invited to go to polling stations to choose who will represent their constituency in the National Assembly. As revealed by our colleagues from HuffPost, some candidates will not be able to vote for themselves on June 12, however, not residing in the constituency they are running for. A sometimes embarrassing situation for those concerned, accused of “parachuting”.
The former Minister of National Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, filed his candidacy in the 4th constituency of Loiret under the banner of the presidential majority. Local voters reproach him for a lack of proximity and for having been parachuted into this department. He himself admitted on BFMTV to know “a little” the territory, but not “perfectly”. Indeed, the candidate is not registered on the electoral lists of the fourth constituency of Loiret, as revealed by his campaign team on Tuesday.
