Jordan Bardella Fakten

By Duncan Mil

June 11, 2024 - Der 28-Jahre alte Jordan Bardella könnte französischer Premierminister in nur wenigen Wochen werden, nachdem Emmanuel Macron die Nation mit vorgezogenen Parlamentswahlen geschockt hat.

National Rally’s Marine Le Pen has said she will serve as French president, and her running-mate, Jordan Bardella, would be appointed prime minister if the far-right party wins the upcoming French general election.

The first round will take place on June 30, less than three weeks away, and the run-off will be on July 7.

A provisional count shows that the far-right National Rally (RN), which has shed its racist reputation, won 31.4% of the vote, more than double the 14.6% share of Macron’s centrist alliance.

In his own words, the son of an Italian immigrant uses TikTok and other social platforms -- where he boasts 1.2 million followers -- “to reach out to young people who are depoliticised and become politicised through social media.”

According to the Ipsos survey conducted for Le Monde from April 19 to 24, around a third of 18-24-year-olds (32%) are likely to cast a ballot for Bardella in a general election.

“Our civilisation will die… because it will be submerged by migrants who will have changed our customs, culture, and way of life irreversibly,” Bardella told a recent rally.

On the private side, Jordan Bardella is in a relationship with Nolwenn Olivier, the daughter of Marie-Caroline Le Pen, Philippe Olivier, and the niece of Marine Le Pen.
