Republican Party President Christian Jacob on Monday announced a clear repudiation of any opportunity to shore up parties supporting President Emmanuel Macron in the National Assembly.

This circumstance enabled “a very healthy debate” in the Strategic Committee, which led to an “almost unanimous, ultramajority” decision.

Jacob has accused Macron of ‘dividing’ the country ‘like never before’. “He exploited the extremes and put France in the situation we know today,” he warned. “We are against En Marcha, the national association and the extreme left and remain with this line,” he emphasized.

However, Republicans have already expressed their opposition to the motion of no confidence in French Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne announced by La France Insumisa party for next July 5th.

“What is this idea of ​​chasing men or women? I have no political sympathy for Élisabeth Borne, but that does not mean that I will join the rebels with whom I have nothing in common,” argued the Republican general secretary Aurélien Pradié, speaking to France Info.
