The meeting, which will be organized in prime time by TF1 and France 2 on Wednesday April 20, should not be presented by Anne-Sophie Lapix. Indeed, the organization of this debate It is a headache for the two channels that together must offer a tandem of presenters who are at the same time the same, made up of equivalent profiles, and above all validated by the two fields still in contention.
However, as announced by the right arm of the leader of the National Rally, Jordan Bardella, on the set of Time for the professionals on Cnews this Monday, Marine Le Pen doesn’t want to debate on a show hosted by the presenter of the 20 Hours of France 2.
A poorly “disguised” “hostility”
“There are proposals made by the two channels that traditionally organize the debate, that is TF1, France 2. And then, by mutual agreement with the teams of the candidates, that is Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, we are negotiating the organization of the debate” he explained. And one candidate for the position has already been rejected:
“Marine Le Pen does not want Anne-Sophie Lapix to moderate the debate because there is a lot of bias, and Anne-Sophie Lapix, whom I respect as a journalist, cannot hide her hostility towards -à-vis Marine Le Pen every time she hosts it. ”, he justified before adding that Emmanuel Macron did not want to see her lead the debate either.
According teleramathe president of the Republic I would not appreciate the work of the public channel, as well as its presenter Anne-Sophie Lapix. a report on mimi traderClose to the Macron couple and in the crosshairs of justice, he would have been particularly displeased.
Anne-Claire Coudray and Léa Salamé, an “original” duo
Who could claim the position then?? Jordan Bardella kept the door open for Léa Salamé and Pascal Praud with a “why not?” The same goes for Gilles Bouleau, who confirmed his candidacy for puremedias.com. ”It could be Anne-Claire Coudray and Léa Salamé, it would be original. But again, I am not speaking on behalf of the candidates,” she concluded.
At this time, TF1 and France 2 have not formalized the names of those who make up their tandem.
This is not the first time presenters have been disqualified by contestants. In 2017, for example, Marine Le Pen refused to allow Anne-Claire Coudray to present the debate between the two rounds. Christophe Jakubyszyn and Nathalie Saint-Cricqrespective heads of the political services of TF1 and France 2, were ultimately responsible.
