Sarkozy will vote for Macron, Le Pen without Zemmour and the children of Ukraine: the info to remember this afternoon

The information not to be missed

He joins the list of personalities calling for the re-election of the President. Former President Nicolas Sarkozy, who failed to show his support for Valérie Pécresse in the first round, came out of reluctance on Tuesday morning to announce that he will vote for Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the presidential election. “I think he has the necessary experience in the face of a serious international crisis, more complex than ever,” he said in a message published on his social networks. “He is the only one capable of acting as things stand,” he adds, believing that “France’s interest must be our only guide”.

At the same time, former Socialist Prime Minister Lionel Jospin also announced his intention to elect Emmanuel Macron in order to “sack Marine Le Pen”. In the Insoumis camp, who finished third in the first lap, we remember Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s instruction: “No vote for Madame Le Pen”. “Marine Le Pen can by no means be the solution,” asserts Manuel Bompard, Mélenchon’s campaign manager. For him, the rebels who want to vote for Marine Le Pen in the second ballot are “making a mistake.”

Regarding Marine Le Pen, Éric Zemmour urged his constituents to vote for her on Sunday night despite her “disagreements”, just like Nicolas Dupont-Aignan.

What else to remember

  • No Zemmour in government under a Le Pen mandate. The National Assembly candidate has ruled out the possibility of Éric Zemmour, who finished fourth in the first round, joining her government if she is elected president. “He doesn’t want it and neither do I,” Marine Le Pen told France Inter this morning.
  • Almost 5 million Ukrainian children have been displaced by the war. 4.8 million Ukrainian children aged 0 to 18 had to leave their place of residence, according to Unicef. “In six weeks it’s just incredible,” says Manuel Fontaine, head of the NGO’s emergency relief programs. “They were forced to leave everything behind: their home, their school and often their family members as well,” he told the UN Security Council.
  • The Gifts of Jean Lassalle. “We often need someone smaller than ourselves,” he says. Arrived seventh in the first ballot, the candidate “Résistons” promises “a corresponding donation” to the parties PS, LR and EELV, parties in financial difficulties whose campaign costs will not be reimbursed because they collected less than 5% of the votes.
