Proposals about uniforms to tempt certain LR and macronis

But Marine Le Pen wants to broaden her electoral base and seeks to show that her group wants to act on a basis that goes beyond its fundamentals, even if it means trapping the opposition.

Thus the right could be tempted to say yes to a bill to be debated this Thursday on uniforms in schools and colleges. During the televised debate for the presidency of LR, Éric Ciotti, Aurélien Pradié, and Bruno Retailleau, the trio positioned themselves in favor of one dress in schools.

Due to a lack of time – at midnight, the debate stopped automatically – certain proposals were also not allowed to be debated, such as presumed police self-defense.
