Just over 600 votes separate them. Laure Miller (Renaissance) and Anne-Sophie Frigout (RN) were neck and neck for this second round of the partial legislative in the 2nd district of Marne. It is the Macronist candidate who wins with nearly 52% of the vote (9047 votes). The outgoing MP, Anne-Sophie Frigout had seen her election last June invalidated. The fault with an imbroglio on ballots of Laure Miller considered irregular. This is the first time that a Lepenist has won this right-wing bastion by winning with 52% votes against a Nupes candidate. At the time, the participation was displayed at more than 43%. For this new election in January, voters, on the other hand, shunned the ballot box. Abstention is the big winner, with a record rate approaching 75%.
And in this battle, the National Rally inevitably loses a seat as a deputy in the National Assembly. “It is a disappointment not to be able to continue my work as an MP and not to be able to add a voice against the unfair pension reform”, indicated Anne-Sophie Frigout last night in a press release. As for the new MP, two days before the mobilization against the pension reform, she announced last night “To measure the extent of expectations but also the sum of anger. It was to provide an answer to this that I got involved in politics”.
