1 – A new president for the National Gathering
The National Rally will have a new president on Saturday. But the two candidates – Jordan Bardella, the favorite, and Louis Alliot – they had to hope for a lighter atmosphere to start their mandate. Deputy Grégoire de Fournas was expelled for 15 days, after making comments deemed racist in the hemicycle on Thursday.
The new era that opens in the RN (for the first time the party will not be led by a Le Pen) begins therefore with doubts about true demonization of the former National Front (we talked about it here) e troops beginning to be hampered at the corners (we were talking about it there).

Their lawyer Fiodor Rilov held a videoconference press conference on Thursday afternoon.

Earlier in the day, Vladimir Putin demanded that civilians be civilians “distant”. Signs that seem to indicate that a major offensive by Ukrainian forces is expected. “Military engineers transport up to 1,200 civilian vehicles, trucks and cars daily, as well as more than 5,000 civilians to the left bank of the Dnieper River”, the Russian Defense Ministry said about Telegram’s messages.

In Fort Worth, Texas, the last match of his group will oppose the Russian Daria Kasatkina on Saturday (21:30). Both Coco Gauff (already eliminated) and lost to Swiatek (already qualified), the duel will resemble a quarter-final.

In the meantime, she has already surpassed Elena Rybakina in the ranking of the most successful aces of the season (373).
