Legislative 2022: cleaning lady, artist, grocer, they shake up the National Assembly

These atypical personalities, from right, center, as from left, invest the Palais Bourbon after the second round, and create the surprise.

Transformed. The National Assembly, after the passage of the storm Nupes and RN, is unrecognizable. While it had more than 30% of executives and was devoid of workers, the situation seems to differ today. More employees, liberal professionals, or civil servants, and fewer executives. Whether they are Nupes, RN, or Ensemble, these atypical profiles are budding in the Bourbon palace.

With 51.38% of the votes, Rachel Kéke, chambermaid, officially became deputy Nupes facing the former Sports Minister, Roxana Maracineanu, in the 7th constituency of Val de Marne. CThis union activist, mother of five children, is the first of her profession to walk through the doors of the Palais Bourbon. Considered a symbol of social struggles, the extraordinary elected official intends to do well “shake the National Assembly”she said on Twitter.

From art galleries to the seat of deputy

Brushes, canvases, and ballots. Among the artists, Jérémie Iordanoff becomes deputy of the 5th district of Isère. This 39-year-old painter joins the Bourbon Palace with 50.43% of the vote. A narrow victory, therefore, for this long-time activist, all the same more accustomed to gouaches than to parliamentary debates, who intends “turn the page” of the last term.

Education professionals, who were already 25 in 2017, also left their mark on the Palais Bourbon. François Piquemal is officially elected in Haute-Garonne. The history and French teacher gathered 59.26% of the votes under the Nupe colors. Same refrain at Ensemble, where Philippe Fait, school teacher in Pas-de-Calais, is appointed deputy this Sunday evening. For voters and voters on the right as on the left, the stakes of this second round are high: more professional representation within the deputies.

At the RN, the new elected officials create the surprise

The RN confirms this trend. In the Allier, a turn of events. It is a delivery driver who will be at the Assembly. Jorys Bovet, 29, becomes the first far-right deputy in the department, but also the first representative of his profession to sit. The candidate created the surprise: after having made 19.1% in the first round, he gathered 50.2% of the votes this Sunday.

In Yonne, Daniel Grenon, a retired grocer, acceded to the National Assembly. At 73, he was elected under the RN banner with 51.10% of the vote. The septuagenarian made his first appearance in 2021 during the departmental elections, without success. Archery enthusiast and former manager of a delicatessen, the “free retiree”, as he describes himself, is one of those profiles that were not expected in the Assembly.

Just like Laurence Robert-Dehault, RN candidate but also hypnotherapist, who wins this Sunday evening in Haute-Marne. Hypnosis, massage, coaching, between two parliamentary debates on the MP’s program.
