    There is less than three years to go before the next presidential election in France, but the Elabe poll for BFMTV, published on Wednesday, September 11, already bodes well for a good score by the National Rally.

    According to this research, 33 percent of respondents say they are ready to vote for the party of Marine Le Pen.

    The member for the RN of the Pas-de-Calais is not only well-liked by the voters of her political formation, but 69 percent estimate that she would be the best candidate for the RN, against 31 percent for Marion Maréchal.

    On the other hand, for 40 percent of right-wing supporters, the former Vaucluse candidate would be the best representative of the party, against 28 percent who place her aunt Marine in this position. Among all French voters, 30 percent believe that Marion Maréchal would be the best candidate for the National Rally, against 25 percent for Marine Le Pen.

    The leader of the party is perceived by all French as dynamic (62 percent), brave (58 percent) and willing to really change things (53 percent). Marion Maréchal, for her part, is perceived as more friendly (46 percent, +14 points compared to Marine Le Pen) and more sincere (42 percent, +6 points).

    Another poll showed that the National Rally was the most mentioned (24 percent of citations, up 2 points compared to March 2019) as the main opposition party to the executive. Far behind, was Insubordinate France (14 percent, -4 points), Republicans (8 percent, +2 points) and EELV (5 percent, +3 points).

    On Thursday, Louis Aliot, the companion of Marine Le Pen announced his separation from her. The former presidential candidate and the deputy of Pyrénées-Orientales was in a relationship with the RN leader for ten years.

    The newspaper l’Opinion reported on the split: “There is still a lot of emotions between us, politically, we remain on the same line, I have always been in support, I am and I will always be a trooper,” said the MP. The former candidate for the 2017 presidential election has not commented on their separation.

    The couple was already physically separated since they were elected in distant districts: Aliot was in Perpignan, in the Pyrénées-Orientales, and Marine was in Hénin-Beaumont, in the Pas-de-Calais.

    Aliot had “withdrawn” from meetings of the National Rally avoiding for example the launch of the European campaign in La Rochelle, this summer, or the return to politics in Fréjus last weekend.

    Aliot announced last June that he would run for mayor in Perpignan under the label of the “local rally” with candidates who are not from the RN. “The municipal election is an election of general interest, of local interest, of gathering, we are not here to impose our ideas, we are here to defend a project, a future,” he said.

    “And for Perpignan and the metropolis of Perpignan, I have a project and I have the men to lead it,” he assured French broadcaster Europe1. He will face the LREM deputy Roman Grau of the Eastern Pyrenees. The outgoing mayor LR, Jean-Marc Pujol, has not yet declared whether he will be participating in the race.
