    Bardella was the candidate who ensured the victory of the RN list in the European elections.

    He says he wants to establish a balanced relationship. Interviewed by RT France on the sidelines of the National Rally (RN) Summer School in Fréjus on 15 September, the RN Vice-President gave his vision of Franco-Russian relations.

    “We have always been in favor of a balance, of a multipolar world that places France at the heart of balanced relations, between both the United States and Russia, and with all the major powers,” he explained.

    “Russia is obviously a major geostrategic power, with which we have no interest in cutting ourselves from either economically, culturally, geostrategically,” continued Bardella.

    “Obviously an opening to Russia would be a good thing.”

    The vice-president of the RN also took the opportunity to put in a good word for the accreditation of journalists working for RT France. “You may be finally accredited in the press conferences of the Elysée,” he said with a smile, evoking the potential of his party coming to power.

    Marine Le Pen launched the RN’s municipal campaign at the meeting. In particular, she called on “leftist sovereignists” with a presidential tone to her speech, delivering a programme and strategy.

    More surprisingly, Le Pen also indirectly diminished the prospects of her niece Marion Maréchal who, for several weeks, has been preparing the ground for a political comeback . Marine Le Pen was clear, warning that the RN would not support the steps advocating a coalition of conservatives, dear to the former member of Vaucluse, Maréchal.

    “We hear a lot about a coalition with the right,” said the parliamentarian of Pas-de-Calais. To the applause, she continued: “A national coalition project should bring national unity .”

    Maréchal, for her part, has never hidden her desire to gather a “populist rightwing” in a “grand coalition” to include voters of the Republicans (LR) and the National Rally (RN) .

    Marine Le Pen said: “All French people from wherever they come have the vocation to join us and to participate in the fight for the recovery of France.”

    With this logic, Marine Le Pen is betting on including leftist sovereignists: “They will also come from the left, because leftist sovereignists are orphans. I also personally asked our friend Andréa Kotarac to engage in these future municipal elections.”

    Kotarac is a former activist of the leftwing Insubordinate France (LFI), elected to the regional council Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. He announced on May 14 his departure from LFI and his plan to vote for the list of the National Rally (RN) in the European elections.

    French daily Le Monde has estimated that 193 municipalities with more than 3 500 inhabitants – mainly in the North, the Pas-de-Calais and the Mediterranean rim – could potentially be won by the RN in March 2020.
