There without being there. While Marion Maréchal ensures that she has no ambition for the 2022 presidential election, the former FN deputy, officially withdrawn from political life since 2017 but engaged in a “cultural battle” of political ideas, officially launches this Tuesday a center of reflection. One way to return to “the debate”, as the Parisian announced last July.
This Center for Analysis and Foresight (CAP), attached to Issep, the school of political science directed in Lyon by Marion Maréchal, will produce both “decryption notes” linked to current events, as this week on the bill on separatism, and “big, more timeless think tanks”. Including on Europe, economic intelligence or the environment, said the former elected representative of Vaucluse, who has moved away from the party of her aunt, Marine Le Pen, since the 2017 presidential election.
“The presidential campaigns are moments of debate, reflection, construction of programs. In this context, whatever the political offer tomorrow, it is interesting to have a research center such as ours which will offer operational analyzes “and” feed the public debate without being in a partisan approach ” , she explains.
“It’s not specific to the RN, it’s general”
The CAP will remain an “independent structure” which will “not be at the service of either a candidate or a party”, but “if candidates or parties want subjects dealt with by the CAP, this is also done. “, Underlines the former elected extreme right, who deplores that” the parties, whatever they are, have difficulty today to be prescribers of ideas “. “It’s not specific to the RN, it’s general”.
“In this process, I will have to resume a little media activity”, added Marion Maréchal, who does not intend to be a candidate in 2022, but does not rule out returning one day to electoral politics.
The think-tank will remain “faithful to the ingrained spirit” of Issep, a school “conceived within a national framework, sovereignist, conservative”. It will publish “solutions aimed at the independence, power, security and prosperity of France,” said the school in a press release.
