TV INFORMATION BFM – After the call of left-wing parties to boycott the soccer game in which the Assembly team will participate on Wednesday, the president of the Renacimiento group recommends that its deputies not participate in it due to the presence of RN deputies in the team.
LFI, EELV and the PS boycott, Renaissance discourages. The president of the Renaissance group in the National Assembly Aurore Bergé “recommends” the deputies of her party to “not participate” in the soccer match organized this Wednesday in which the French National Assembly soccer team and former international players will compete. for the benefit of an association, learned BFMTV.
As with the leftist parties, it is the presence of deputies from the National Association that worries the majority party. In a message sent to the deputies of her group, which BFMTV was able to consult, Aurore Bergé begins by recalling that the party “did not choose the composition of the Assembly”, and “recognizes” the “choice of the French”. She adds however: “but we choose who we work with, negotiate with and even more so who we form a ‘team’ with.”
“I can only recommend against participating in a match that will result in a ‘team photo’ where we will therefore revert to the ‘we wear the same jersey’ formula,” he wrote. “It’s not. We don’t play on the same team. Neither far right nor far left.”
Despite this recommendation, Karl Olive, who is one of the team’s captains, decided to maintain his presence in Wednesday’s game.
Leftist parties against “the banalization of the extreme right”
This is the first time that RN deputies join the Assembly soccer team. The PS deputies indicated that they were boycotting the party because they rejected “this trivialization of the extreme right”. Same justification from the side of LFI, which denounces the “political recovery” of the event by RN deputies to “affirm the supposed normalization” of the party.
Emmanuel Blairy, deputy of the National Rally who was going to participate in the match, regretted the election of his companions. “They reject democracy,” he commented into the microphone of BFMTV.
