Senior French politician excluded from his party HQ


ER Editor: Eric Ciotti is a senior member of France’s centre-right party of power, Les Republicains (LR) – until recently its president, the party from which Sarkozy and Chirac hailed. Ciotti’s been seeking an alliance of his party with Marine Le Pen’s in a bid to bolster the right ahead of the June 30 election (first round). Allegedly, Ciotti has been having talks with right-wing Catholic media mogul Vincent Bollore (and presumably a team of expert advisors) to this effect.

Problem is, the branding of Le Pen’s party over the years as ‘far-right’ and ‘fascist’ has been highly effective in keeping people away, and certainly members of Ciotti’s own party. Hence Ciotti’s willingness to form an alliance (and an alliance seems to have actually been formed) has not met with any form of assent from Ciotti’s party, on the contrary. He’s been booted out.

It’s all descended into silly theatrics, untypically, and we wonder what the real play is here.

After publishing the story yesterday on the possible uniting of Marine Le Pen with her niece, Marion Marechal, this one involving Eric Ciotti is beginning to make sense. The ‘Les Republicains’ need a boot up the bum and some rapid exposure. First, Macron announces an election on Sunday night around 9pm, following only the exit polls from the European elections. The polls themselves had barely closed. Then Marion and Marine immediately look to get their act very publicly together, with right-wing splitter Eric Zemmour (Rothschilds-funded) left alone and outraged. Meanwhile, Ciotti is plotting with Bollore and pulls a media stunt in the party headquarters, which gets him ejected from the party. Reaction is forthcoming and pressure builds to get the globalist centre-right into a unified right wing faction. What will be next? There is nothing natural going on here.

Meanwhile, the Left appear to be forming a united front. Anybody with a functioning brain can see this is not what any self-respecting country struggling to survive needs right now.

Our gratitude to regular reader Brigitte for making sure we’re on track with our reporting.

Translation: Eric Ciotti just published this. It’s the best sketch of the decade. I’m choking on laughter 

Translation: Thanks to Eric Ciotti who never ceases to delight because he allowed this montage of  @IllumiReptilien Give the money back anyway!

Youth (in this case, one Guilhem Carayon) getting behind an alliance of the right —

Translation: The young Guilhem Carayon chose to follow Éric Ciotti, taking behind him all the “Young Republicans” of which he is president. The future is here, of course! Young people can no longer stand these old feathered hats that are corrupt and compromised with the Left, with the center, with Macronie… And who were at the center of all the affairs including the scandalous sale of Alstom, such as Pécresse, Gaymard, Sarkozy… Bravo to Guilhem Carayon who is today opening a truly new path to the moderate, Gaullist, wise and responsible Right that the French are demanding.

Translation: Exclusive images of Eric Ciotti at the Les Republicain headquarters

Translation: The Young Guard officially calls for support for the far-left alliance. As a reminder, it is a small, ultra-violent group that regularly attacks patriots. This is what the PS compromised with! Let’s not leave France in the hands of these delinquents!


Ciotti excluded from the Republicans and entrenched at party headquarters: towards a political and legal battle?

RT France

In the space of a few hours, Éric Ciotti went from being president of the Republicans to being excluded from the party after his agreement concluded with the National Rally.

Eric Ciotti’s agreement with the National Rally sealed on June 11 caused an uproar in the ranks of the Republicans. The party president closed the doors of the headquarters before being excluded from his own party.

A real sketch: pushed out by all the executives of his party, Éric Ciotti prevented members of the Republican (LR) political bureau from gathering at their headquarters on June 13. The latter had the building evacuated and its doors closed. At the end of the morning, we even saw him parading on the balcony, claiming to be working. A surreal scene which pushed the political office to stay outside the party walls.

ER: You don’t need French to hear the media reaction —

Translation: Despite his exclusion, Éric #Ciotti is in the headquarters #LR and confirms to journalists that he has “almost all access” to the building.

François-Xavier Bellamy and Annie Genevard will replace Éric Ciotti at the head of the Republicans, it was announced at the end of the office. The leader of the LR list in the European elections and the party’s general secretary will provide an interim tandem while the party’s political bureau unanimously excluded Éric Ciotti from its members, according to a press release.

Translation: Happy that in record time and unanimously, the leaders @lesRepublicains have defeated a solitary attempt to hold up our Gaullist history, our convictions and our values. The Republican left did not have the same courage in renewing an alliance with the far left #LFI which demonstrated, in the National Assembly and in the streets, that it constitutes a real danger for our democracy.

“Happy that in record time and unanimously, the leaders of the Republicans have defeated a solitary attempt to hold up our Gaullist history, our convictions and our values.” Senator Max Brisson thus welcomed the ousting of LR president Éric Ciotti and his temporary replacement on June 12. For LR, it is the start of a delicate legislative campaign but also of a possible legal confrontation with their former president.

A legal headache for LR?

The exclusion of President Ciotti on June 12 was nevertheless not legal, according to the lawyers’ various analyses. Thus, Maître Pierre Gentillet affirmed in the wake of the ouster of the president of LR that this decision had “no legal value given that the statutes of the Republicans provide […] that the political bureau can only meet with two ways: 1) By decision of the president […]; 2) At the request of a quarter of Congress.” 

The LR leaders therefore summoned the new political office to “validate the exclusion of Mr. Ciotti” on June 13. The party executives affirmed in a press release that they had “very largely collected more than a quarter of the signatures of the LR national advisors who cover the national territory”. And to assure: “The end is near.”

The use of the Les Républicains logo during the legislative elections could become a subject of friction between the different factions present.

A political battle in perspective

All party executives condemned President Ciotti’s action but he has the support of half of his party’s members. Indeed, an Odoxa-Backbone Consulting study for Le Figaro  reveals that half of LR supporters approve of its alliance with the RN.

In terms of personalities, the party president must be content with a few names, including a handful of deputies and MEPs. The president of the Young Republicans Guilhem Carayon also followed him, estimating on the set of C8: “What differentiates us from the RN is nothing compared to what brings us together.”

The UNI student union, historically very close to the LR, published a press release in which it supports Éric Ciotti: “Faced with the danger of the macronie and the extreme left, right-wing youth must unite and mobilize.”

On CNews, the mayor of Salbris (Loir-et-Cher) Alexandre Avril also defended President Ciotti. “People want an alternation with Macronism, which is over, but they do not want this alternation to be the idiocy of the far left,” he justified.

But in this month of June, it is above all the right which is disintegrating, between this Ciotti affair with the Republicans and the implosion of Reconquête, with the exclusion of Marion Maréchal by Éric Zemmour. (ER: There is still two weeks before the first round of the elections.)
