It was Marine Le Pen who closed the National Rally’s summer school in Cap d’Agde this weekend with a speech hailing “relentless political change and a wave of patriotism” in Europe. The president of the party will leave his post to prepare for the 2027 presidency. The two candidates for his succession are Jordan Bardella and the mayor of Perpignan, Louis Aliot. They have officially started their campaign.
In Agda, for the summer university weekend, the RN troops found themselves in the promised land. Marine Le Pen won more than 60% of the votes in the second round of the presidential elections held in the seaside resort, and RN won another 10 points in the Legislative elections held two months later.
“It will no longer be Emmanuel Macron, it will be us” : Marine Le Pen introduced herself “Work-Study for France”, On Sunday, during his speech in Hérault, which marked his political return as much as he said goodbye to the leader of the National Rally, without giving up his Elysian ambitions.

The sky has cleared and the horizon that many thought was darkening for the national movement is now clear.

After Marine Le Pen, they are 2. Jordan Bardella, 27, current interim president, and Louis Aliot, 53, mayor of Perpignan and ex-husband of Marine Le Pen.
A traveling companion, against a rising star… In a relationship with Marine Le Pen’s niece.
The latter led a victorious Legislature campaign last June, and as interim president, he is a heavy favorite and has his ideas endorsed.
“Systematic deportation of foreign criminals and criminals, abolition of social assistance to parents of repeat minors, end of automatic commutation of sentences”, robust, uninhibited discourse that appeals locally. The deputy from Agda district, who hosted the event, definitely shows his support.
“I’m rooting for Jordan Bardella, he’s my generation. He’s someone I look up to as a person and I’ve known him for a few years.” Aurélien Lopez-Liguori, deputy RN for the 7th arrondissement of Herault, explains.
Ahead, Louis Aliot, an outsider who knows music… In a controlled campaign, he pokes fun at the local and old-fashioned image he adorns.
I’ve come to disprove some of the rumors that say I never go more than 20km outside of Perpignan. Look, I did a feat! I crossed my Catalan border, which shows how sure I am of what I’m doing despite my old age.Louis Aliot, Mayor of Perpignan.
And to add Louis Aliot: “It seems that I am a loser, but beware, there are examples where the weak eventually wins.”
