The Head of State is due to speak this Monday, April 17, in the evening. A televised address which follows the validation of the essentials of the pension reform by the Constitutional Council, and which Marine Le Pen, no doubt, will follow with attention.

Guest of the “Grand Jury RTL-Le Figaro-LCI”, the president of the National Rally group in the Assembly first gave “reassuring” news from her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, hospitalized this weekend due to “of great fatigue, perhaps of a cardiac nature”, according to information from Le Point confirmed to Figaro. “He’s fine,” she assured.

Then asked what Emmanuel Macron could say or do in the days to come, Marine Le Pen felt that the Head of State now had a choice: a referendum on pensions, the dissolution of Parliament, or else resignation. “I think he can’t get away from one of these three solutions if he wants to respect the spirit of our institutions,” she said. “These are the three solutions to get out of a conflict that it has generated.”

Criticizing the “unusual speed” and “childish” with which the president promulgated the pension reform, Marine Le Pen also judged that Emmanuel Macron took “an astonishing pleasure in throwing the French against each other, in brutalizing them and to govern against the French people: he almost makes himself a glory of it”. Before adding, “He’s still in a defiant state of mind.” In the columns of Le Parisien , Laurent Berger launched a call for mobilization on May 1st. To the participants, the secretary general of the CFDT enjoined to continue their fight against the text and to “break the house” in terms of mobilization. “I leave the freedom to my constituents to go and demonstrate,” evacuated Marine Le Pen. “My name is not Jean-Luc Mélenchon and therefore, I do not intend to take the place of the unions”, she continued, considering all the same legitimate the mobilization to come.

After questioning the independence of the Constitutional Council last week, the unfortunate ex-candidate for the presidency somewhat nuanced her remarks. Considering that the institutions, including that of rue Montpensier, “are affected by the discredit of the President of the Republic”. However, she judged that, with regard to the composition of the Constitutional Council, there was matter for “reflection”. “The fact that most of the members are appointed by political institutions… All of this can be thought through, it is not set in stone.”
