This week, Lyon Capital you are proposing a series of debates as part of the campaign for the legislative elections. We start this Monday with the 1st district of the Rhône.
In 2017, the second round of the legislative elections opposed France Insoumise to La République en Marche in the 1st district of the Rhône. Five years later, the political configuration has not changed significantly. In this constituency straddling five arrondissements (2nd, 5th, 7th, 8th and 9th), Jean-Luc Mélenchon came out on top in the first round of the presidential election in this constituency (31.5%), ahead of Emmanuel Macron ( 30.9%) and Marine Le Pen (10.8%).
For our debate, we therefore brought together Thomas Rudigoz, the outgoing Renaissance deputy, and Aurélie Gries, candidate for the union of the left (Nupes). Each candidate exposes a law that he will carry if he is elected deputy on the evening of June 19. Aurélie Gries spoke about purchasing power. “We will block, by decree, the prices of basic necessities”, she assures. A theme also carried by Thomas Rudigoz who defended the government’s measure articulated around checks. He also denouncesJean-Luc Mélenchon’s dangerous program for our economy” when Aurélie Gries points to checks that are only “bandages”.

The outgoing deputy LREM then questioned Aurélie Gries on the differences of point of view within the union of the left on Europe or Ukraine. The candidate Nupes questioned Thomas Rudigoz about his vote against the deconjugalization of the disabled adult allowance during the previous mandate.
