The best defence is the attack. Asked by BFMTV on Monday afternoon, Martine Vassal has reacted strongly to the soap opera politico-legal that erupted this weekend in Marseille, france, where his HEADQUARTERS for the campaign has been searched in the framework of a preliminary investigation. In cause, the existence of a system - potentially illegal - of the "powers of attorney simplified", in which several colistiers of the candidate LR would be involved.read also : Municipal in Marseille: behind the blur of projects, the battle of the ego
"I'm not a fraudeuse, I've never been, and it is not now that I'm gonna be", immediately defended the head of the list. "I opened the doors and windows of all offices that I have. I hope that the investigators look at everything and everywhere, even among my competitors. I have been very transparent, I hope that it's going to be poor also", she added, targeting its opponents."In Marseilles, one wants a boss, not a puppet-master"
Promising to be "intractable" if the facts were "confirmed," Martine Vassal considered that he had for the moment "stop the rumors". "I find it odd that, at 15 days a second round of elections as important, there was as much adversity", expressed surprise at the president RL of the metropolis and of the department. Great favorite of the polls, she had arrived in second position on the 15th march last, behind Michele Rubirola (PS, PCF, EELV, BIA).
So that judicial time is often much slower than political time, Martine Vassal is sent directly to Christophe Castaner, who is in charge of the elections. "I call on the minister of the Interior, as there seems to be a suspicion about the power of attorney, he cancelled all proxies filed for the second round," she claimed. And to conclude : "I want to win fair. (...) In Marseille, one wants a boss, not a puppet".
