The President of Reconquest! Éric Zemmour is once again at the heart of a controversy. During an internal party meeting on Tuesday, the former candidate for the legislative elections in the Var would have described the popular classes as “illiterate”. He even almost came to blows with MEP Jérôme Rivière.

New remarks that are controversial around Éric Zemmour. The President of Reconquest! said Tuesday that the working classes were “illiterate” during an internal meeting of the party, while some members criticized him for not knowing how to address the most modest classes, according to the newspaper The Express. The former candidate for the legislative elections, who was eliminated in the first round in the fourth constituency of the Var, would have pronounced this shock sentence during the political committee of the party.

Zemmour close to coming to blows with Rivière

During this meeting, again according to The Express, several members of Reconquest! would have qualified as “autocratic” the functioning of the party, with a political line decided exclusively by Éric Zemmour, Guillaume Peltier and Sarah Knafo. The same source reports to the newspaper that the former presidential candidate was close to coming to blows with MEP Jérôme Rivière.

This internal episode of Éric Zemmour’s party comes in a delicate context for Reconquête!. In addition to the early elimination of the party president in the legislative elections, no member has managed to win a single seat in the National Assembly. An electoral setback two months after the underperformance of the presidential election, after which Éric Zemmour had obtained 7% of the votes in the first round, far from the 15% promised in the polls.
