Why will some Macronist deputies not stand for legislative elections?

In the ranks of the majority, at least thirty deputies will not stand for re-election in the next legislative elections. Some draw up a vitriolic assessment of the five-year term and fire red balls at Emmanuel Macron’s presidential campaign.


Even if their mandate ends in June, some deputies already know that they will not return to the National Assembly: they will not stand for legislative elections. Mostly disappointed with Emmanuel Macron’s right-wing, they do not hesitate to vehemently criticize the outgoing president’s campaign.

“I couldn’t look voters straight in the eye”

“I don’t want to be re-elected by defending retirement at 65,” confides a figure on the left wing. Denouncing a new level in the right-wing of Emmanuel Macron, this deputy renounces to represent himself in a constituency that the majority has a good chance of keeping. “With such a program, I could not campaign looking voters straight in the eye,” he said, especially after a five-year term spent swallowing grass snakes.

“It’s made of odds and ends”

Others disappointed with macronism will miss the call during the legislative elections. One of them is alarmed: “We can’t build on a gathering that goes from Eric Woerth to Elisabeth Guigou, it’s made up of odds and ends”.

Another abounds in the same direction and worries: “The confusion of ideas and political offers fuels radicalism and extremes”, he warns. before predicting a majority defeat in the legislative elections and concluding: “If Macron is re-elected, without debate, the French will have voted for him by default. They will choose counter-powers”.
