who is this farmer elected to the European elections with

Regional councilor of Burgundy Franche-Comté and sheep farmer in Bresse, Valérie Deloge is now a MEP after the victory of the National Rally in the 2024 European elections.

Unknown to the general public, Bressane Valérie Deloge was elected to the European Parliament on June 9, 2024. The candidate who appeared in 20th position on the National Rally list carried by Jordan Bardella was actually eligible according to the results of the polls which until the end of the campaign were counting on the elections of at least 25 elected officials from the Lepéniste list.

Presented by the RN as the future “representative of Burgundy Franche-Comté and the agricultural world” within the European Parliament, Valérie Deloge and her running mates assure that they are on “the only list which resolutely defends the work of our farmers, our terroirs, our know-how and our food sovereignty in the face of punitive ecology and unfair competition from free trade treaties. Before her election, the fifty-year-old had made it her mission to protect French farmers, an important electoral target of the RN. It was already a promise she had made after her arrival at the Burgundy Franche-Comté regional council in 2021.

During the agricultural crisis which broke out at the end of January 2024 with a significant mobilization of unions in the sector, the regional councilor tabled a motion to declare a state of agricultural emergency in the Burgundy Franche-Comté region and deal with the difficulties faced by farmers. The farmers then protested against the draft law on agriculture and the European standards which weigh on their shoulders.

On the occasion of the last regional elections, in 2021, Valérie Deloge hosted Marine Le Pen and Julien Odoul at her La Genête farm, both in the middle of the electoral campaign. The president of the far-right party and the very media French MP had, according to the Journal of Saône et Loirestrolled in front of the cameras among the breeder’s sheep and exchanged a few words about the agricultural situation in France.
