                         Il National Rally (RN), partito di estrema destra francese, ha confermato il 27enne Jordan Bardella come sostituto di Marine Le Pen alla guida del partito. La signora Le Pen si concentrerà invece sulla guida del gruppo del partito in parlamento, dopo aver conquistato 89 seggi all’Assemblea Nazionale all’inizio di quest’anno. Marine Le Pen rimane la fonte del potere reale ed è ancora la probabile candidata alle prossime elezioni presidenziali del 2027.

                         Rivolgendosi al partito, Bardella ha detto di voler unire tutti coloro che vogliono riportare la Francia sulla strada giusta. Con noi, il popolo francese avrà sempre la priorità in patria e non intendiamo rinunciare a servire il nostro popolo per primo. Cresciuto in una famiglia povera di origine italiana nella periferia parigina, Bardella si è unito all’estrema destra da adolescente ed è salito rapidamente ai vertici del partito, diventandone il presidente ad interim lo scorso anno. Ha condotto con successo la campagna elettorale del RN per le elezioni europee del 2019 e da allora ha impressionato anche i suoi nemici con la sua assertività nei dibattiti.

                         Ha fatto questo per concentrarsi sulla sua candidatura alle presidenziali, che alla fine ha perso in aprile al ballottaggio con il presidente Emmanuel Macron. Nonostante la sconfitta, due mesi dopo ha guidato la campagna elettorale parlamentare del partito, in cui il RN ha conquistato 89 seggi – un aumento di 10 volte e il miglior risultato di sempre del partito. Il successo dell’estrema destra e della sinistra in quelle elezioni ha portato il partito del presidente Macron a perdere la maggioranza.

Jordan Bardella: French National Rally has new leader to replace Le Pen.

France’s far-right National Rally (RN) has confirmed 27-year-old Jordan Bardella as the replacement as party leader for Marine Le Pen.

Ms Le Pen will focus instead on leading the party’s group in parliament, after it took 89 seats in the National Assembly earlier this year.

It marks the first time in its 50-year history that the main far-right party has not been led by a Le Pen.

But the move does not mark a major change in direction for the party.

Marine Le Pen remains the source of real power and she is still the likely candidate in the next presidential election in 2027.

She told the party on Saturday that she was not disappearing from politics.

“I am not leaving RN to take a holiday. I will be there where the country needs me,” she said at the party convention.

Addressing the party, Mr Bardella said he sought to unite all those who want to put France back on the right track.

“With us, the people of France will always have priority at home and we do not intend to give up on serving our people first,” he said.

“We will finally be the friends and the road to recovery that the country needs to ward off 40 years of mistakes, of letting go, of resignation and cowardice.”

Brought up in a poor family of Italian origin in the Paris suburbs, Mr Bardella joined the far-right as a teenager and rose quickly to the top of the party, becoming its acting president last year.

He ran the RN’s successful 2019 European election campaign, and has since impressed even his enemies with his assertiveness in debates.

He is seen as loyal to Ms Le Pen, telling AFP news agency recently that he is a “continuity candidate with the aim of building on the incredible legacy that Marine is handing over”.

His elevation to the party’s senior leadership is part of the RN’s efforts to soften its image and attract younger voters.

Like Ms Le Pen he likes to portray himself as a new type of nationalist who has little in common with the racism and anti-Semitism of the party’s predecessor, the National Front.

However, critics say that these sentiments still exist within the party.

In the most recent controversy, a RN lawmaker was suspended for two weeks from the National Assembly for making an allegedly racist remark while a black member of parliament was speaking.

Ms Le Pen stepped down last year as leader of the party, which she had headed since she succeeded her father Jean-Marie Le Pen in 2011. She did so in order to focus on her presidential bid, which she eventually lost in April in a run-off to President Emmanuel Macron.

Despite the defeat, she fronted the party’s parliamentary election campaign two months later in which the RN won 89 seats – a 10-fold rise and the party’s best-ever showing.

The success of the far-right and the left in those elections led to President Macron’s party losing its majority.
