Macron’s spokesperson attacked by suspected migrant vandals
07/09/2024 // Belle Carter // Views

A few days before the second round of France's legislative election, President Emmanuel Macron's junior minister and her team were attacked while putting up posters on the campaign trail.

Government spokesperson and candidate for the Hauts-de-Seine's eighth constituency Prisca Thevenot of Macron's Renaissance party was accosted by four individuals in the western Parisian suburb of Meudon in the area where she is running for office.

As reported by local news agency Le Parisien, Thevenot revealed that she and her campaign team "found themselves next to a small group of young people" who had been defacing posters. They called the teenagers out on their vandalism but were "immediately attacked." She was uninjured, but a member of her team suffered a broken jaw while her deputy, Virginie Lanlo, was also beaten. Both were taken to Percy Hospital in Clamart for treatment.

"Everything happened very, very quickly," said Thevenot, also confirming she had filed a complaint at the Meudon police station. Four suspects have been arrested, including three minors and one adult. The prosecutor's office also said it opened an investigation into an assault with a weapon against a public official but did not indicate what the motivation for the attack was.

"Violence is never the answer. I will end my campaign on the ground," said Thevenot on X.

With authorities not publishing further information regarding the attackers, several journalists and media outlets have suggested that the perpetrators were of migrant backgrounds. This fact was allegedly being deliberately censored over fears it would increase the support for Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella's conservative and anti-illegal immigrant National Rally (RN) party ahead of the second round of voting in the French legislative elections.

According to journalist Damien Rieu: "You won't hear it on TV but one of Prisca Thevenot's attackers is called Wacim, another is Ivorian. They will try to hide the information until Sunday. A minister who is attacked by scum… that could boost the RN."

Radio station Europe 1 confirmed that three of the four suspects arrested hold French citizenship and one is an Ivorian migrant. Another reporter named Amaury Bucco of Valeurs Actuelles reported that one man had torn down posters before addressing several young girls in the neighborhood and preaching the Quran.

"These are the same people who caused the riots last year," he wrote, citing a local source referencing civil unrest caused by activists affiliated with the far left. "The residents are a bit annoyed. They don't understand why the authorities only resort to arrests when a female politician is attacked, while they are subjected to this gang every day."

Leftist alliance takes over France

A leftist coalition won after the second and decisive round of voting in legislative elections Sunday, July 7. Projections showed that the newly formed New Popular Front is finishing ahead of Macron's liberal and centrist Ensemble coalition and Le Pen's conservative RN.

A lot of observers were shocked that the new alliance emerged as the winner in this election because the left has been defined by its divisions for decades. However, the strong performance of Le Pen's anti-immigrant movement in the first round inspired the country's various leftist forces to band together, reports indicate.

The New Popular Front is a broad left-wing electoral alliance that brought together most of France's major center-left and left-wing parties, including the more moderate Socialist Party and The Ecologists as well as the French Communist Party and the La France Insoumise party of the popular left-wing figure Jean-Luc Melenchon.

While Macron appeared to have been correct about how the public would respond to the threat of the country's first far-right government since World War II, he seemingly underestimated the appeal of the left. In the first round, the new alliance came in second with 28 percent of the vote, behind the 33 percent of votes cast for RN. Macron's centrist alliance secured only 21 percent.

French elections are decided at the district level in a two-round or runoff voting system, with candidates immediately winning in the first round if they receive more than 50 percent of the vote. Both RN and New Popular Front had more than 30 candidates who achieved this threshold, while Macron's Ensemble only had two candidates popular enough to win a majority. The rest of the constituencies went to a runoff between all remaining candidates who achieve a vote total greater than 25 percent of the registered electorate.

But while the New Popular Front has come out on top, it is nowhere close to securing a parliamentary majority. Unless moderate members of the alliance can form a government with Macron's liberal allies, France could be headed for political gridlock with just weeks until Paris is set to host the Olympics.
