In his greetings to the press, on January 10, the former Figaro columnist promised journalists to release them from their “intellectual slavery”, calling them“most unloved men and women in France”. To believe these words so not very warm, Éric Zemmour does not intend to set foot in an editorial office.
If he is not elected President of the Republic next April, the candidate of La Reconquête has another project in mind. According to L’Opinion, Eric Zemmour plans to be candidate for legislative elections, even if he has not yet determined a constituency to conquer. “One hedge after another”, he says. But in his camp, some would target Île-de-France, according to our colleagues. “What if he’s not leading the troops next June?”, asked one of his relatives recently. But if Éric Zemmour does not present in the legislative elections, some members of La Reconquête would see the new party recruit, Guillaume Peltier, deputy of Loir-et-Cher and former number 2 of the Republicans, to take his place. Among the other names which circulate in the Zemmourian camp, that of Marion Marshal, the niece of Marine Le Pen.
