Future Monopile Plant at the Port of Paulsboro (NJ Governor’s Office)

Posted on June 27, 2022 5:08 PM by

South Jersey Port Corporation







The State of New Jersey is committed to creating new jobs, economic impact and clean energy through the development of the offshore wind industry off the East Coast of the United States – and it is supporting its efforts with more a billion dollars of public and private investments.


Over the next decade, this new industry will bring in investments estimated at $109 billion, and New Jersey officials want to ensure the state takes advantage of its ports, infrastructure and workforce. work qualified to claim its share. Centered in the middle of the wind power rental areas of the Atlantic Coast, New Jersey has prime real estate for the installation and operation of offshore wind turbines. The South Jersey Port Corporation and major state agencies are “all in” to capture a large share of this fledgling industry.


The opportunity is vast. The United States has set a goal of installing 30,000 MW of offshore wind, and more than half of that national goal can be achieved in New Jersey and New York alone. As a measure of industry interest in the area, February’s auction for six rental blocks in the New York Bight area brought in $4.37 billion – the highest total ever paid in a round competitive offshore leasing of any kind in the United States, including oil and gas leasing.


New Jersey has been working for years to prepare for this moment. He has been planning and investing in offshore wind infrastructure for over a decade, and now the stars have aligned for the state to reap the benefits.


In 2019, the state awarded a 1,100 MW power supply contract to Orsted OceanWind I, which is scheduled to be commissioned by 2024. Earlier this year, the state awarded an additional 1,150 MW to Orsted for Ocean Wind II and 1,500 MW to EDF Renewables/Shell for its Atlantic Shores offshore wind project.


To support these new projects, Governor Phil Murphy has allocated $265 million for the development of the future New Jersey Windport which will serve as a staging site for wind components. These funds are in addition to $13 million committed by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and $45 million in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Transportation for dredging projects.


The Wind Port is the nation’s first $300 million infrastructure investment that will provide a dedicated location for essential staging, assembly and manufacturing activities. It will be located on an artificial island on the east bank of the Delaware River near Salem, New Jersey, with an approach channel that has no vertical restrictions. It is expected to create 1,500 jobs and $500 million in annual economic activity.


In the long term, the New Jersey Windport has the potential for over 150 acres of additional manufacturing and development opportunities. Several potential tenants have already expressed interest in the site, including Ørsted and Atlantic Shores. The two offshore wind developers have indicated that they intend to build their projects at the Wind Port. Their winning bids also included proposals to partner with turbine manufacturers GE and Vestas to build nacelle assembly facilities at the port.


Impressive as it is, the Wind Port is just one of the manufacturing sites and marine terminals springing up to support this new industry in New Jersey. With commitments from Ørsted, EEW America Offshore Structures is building a $300 million clone of its German monopile fabrication plant at the Port of Paulsboro, which is owned by the South Jersey Port Corporation (SJPC). The investment will transform a former petrochemical tank farm in the Port of Paulsboro into a major manufacturing center for offshore wind turbines. At full construction, EEW’s Paulsboro site will include six massive manufacturing facilities and 500 employees – working three shifts a day, six days a week – to produce 100 massive monopiles per year.


SJPC’s foresight and planning made this job-creating project possible. Since 2009, SJPC has invested nearly $400 million to build a heavy deck port at the Port of Paulsboro to serve as a general cargo port, with the vision that it would eventually be an ideal location for the emerging offshore wind industry. .


Seven miles north of Windport, SJPC is upgrading its Salem marine terminal. With its multimodal rail links and barge berths along the river, the Port of Salem is ideal for offshore wind logistics support and maintenance.


These sites are located within 60 miles of the Federal Wind Energy Priority Zone, and they have space and facilities available to support offshore wind activity today. The South Jersey Port Corporation has over 500 acres of affordable, available land to meet the needs of offshore wind companies. These sites have excellent infrastructure connections, including dockside rail access to Camden, Paulsboro and Salem, as well as strong CSX and Norfolk Southern rail services.

TOMS RIVER — A 19-year-old has been charged with death by vessel after a fatal boating accident killed someone and injured others, officials said.

Juan Fernandez, II, 19, of Towaco, New Jersey, has been charged with death by vessel, homicide by strict liability vehicle and assault by vessel in connection with a boating accident that occurred on June 13, 2021, which resulted in the death of 19-year-old Corey Molinari of Whippany, New Jersey.

The New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau responded to Antiqua Avenue at approximately 1:13 a.m. June 13 regarding a serious vessel accident in Barnegat Bay.

The Toms River Police Department and local first responders were on scene treating several occupants for non-life threatening injuries. One occupant, Molinari, was found ejected from a pontoon boat and suffered serious bodily injuries, including severe head trauma. He was airlifted to Jersey Shore Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries. At least six other occupants of the boat were identified and treated at the scene for various injuries.

ADVERTISING

An investigation by the Criminal Investigation Bureau of “C” Troop, along with the NJSP Crime Scene Investigation Unit and investigators from the Ocean County District Attorney’s Office revealed that Fernandez, II was the pontoon boat operator when the boat hit a cement channel marker head. on.

Authorities discovered Fernandez, II, had been drinking alcohol while driving the boat and was taken to Toms River Community Medical Center where he consented to a blood draw at around 9:32 a.m.

According to officials, Fernandez, II, the blood alcohol level (BAC) was determined to be 0.037%. However, a forensic psycho-pharmacologist concluded that Fernandez II’s blood alcohol level at the time of the collision was between 0.13% and 0.15%, which exceeds the legal limit of 0.08%.

On September 9, 2021, Fernandez, II, was arrested at his home without incident. He was transported to the New Jersey State Police’s Tuckerton Station for processing. He was later transported to Ocean County Jail and later released following New Jersey’s bail reform.

During the investigation, Fernandez II’s father, Juan A. Fernandez, Sr., 59, of Towaco, was questioned by law enforcement. Authorities determined that Fernandez, Sr., provided false information to detectives and, as a result, was charged with obstructing arrest or prosecution.

Ocean County District Attorney Bradley D. Billhimer acknowledges the diligent efforts of Senior Assistant District Attorney Robert Cassidy, who is handling the case on behalf of the state, and commends the Homicide Unit aboard a vehicle from the Ocean County District Attorney’s Office, the Ocean County District Attorney’s Office High Tech Crime Unit, New Jersey State Police Troop “C” Criminal Investigation Office, New Jersey State Police Crime Scene Investigation Unit, Toms River Township Police Department, for their combined and collective efforts in this investigation that resulted in the indictment of Fernandez.

The charges referenced are bare bones charges and the accused is deemed innocent until proven guilty.

12-foot great white shark located off New Jersey https://authenticseattlemarinershop.com/12-foot-great-white-shark-located-off-new-jersey/ Tue, 21 Jun 2022 16:02:01 +0000 https://authenticseattlemarinershop.com/12-foot-great-white-shark-located-off-new-jersey/ It’s summer feeding season again, when great white sharks make their way up the east coast en route from the Gulf of Mexico to the cooler waters off Canada, hunting all the way.

It’s summer feeding season again, when great white sharks make their way up the east coast en route from the Gulf of Mexico to the cooler waters off Canada, hunting all the way. A battle-scarred 12-footer named Maple, which surfaced in Hudson Canyon off New Jersey last Friday, appears to be the latest to join the party.

A subadult female weighing 1,300 pounds and named after the national symbol of Canada, Maple was first tagged by OCEARCH, a global non-profit ocean research organization, and released on September 14, 2021, near Nova Scotia. Since then she has traveled more than 4,300 miles, swimming south to the southern tip of Florida on December 25, reaching as far west as the Mississippi Delta in February, returning to the Miami area late May, then moving up the Jersey Shore for the past three weeks.

And she is certainly not alone. Earlier this month, New Jersey angler Jim Piazza filmed a huge great white swimming right by his boat as he returned from a fishing trip off Sea Isle City.

“I almost crushed him. My son was like pointing at him like, ‘Hey, there’s a shark.’ And I’m like, ‘No way!’ It was just kind of a swim north towards Ocean City,” Piazza told WPVI TV Action News.

Over the past three days, OCEARCH has received pings from six of their great whites tagged along the coast from South Carolina to Newfoundland. Crystal, last pinged on Saturday just off Pleasant Bay in Maine, is the smallest of the lot at 10 feet and 460 pounds. Scot, a 13ft, 1,644lb, which crashed during spring break in Florida last March, is the tallest of the six and was last recorded on Sunday just off Long Bay, near the border between South Carolina and North Carolina. OCEARCH has tracked several other great whites, including Mahone, a 1,700-pounder, and Ironbound, to this stretch of coast over the past month.

But Maple is perhaps the most distinctive of the crowd. She has very visible scars on the left of her body, which the OCEARCH team believe were likely caused by an interaction with another great white shark. OCEARCH states that “this interaction was possibly an example of dominance behavior. It is not uncommon for sharks to show their dominance over a smaller animal of their species by delivering a large but non-lethal bite.

A close up of Maple’s battle scars, likely caused by another great white. OCEARCH

Ocearch tags and tracks great white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) and other marine animals to better understand their migration patterns and protect them from extinction. Their vessel, the M/V OCEARCH, is equipped with a hydraulic platform with a capacity of 75,000 pounds. When the research team carries a great white on deck, they use hoses to hydrate the beast’s gills and collect up to 12 biological samples in 15 minutes. Before releasing the specimen, they attach acoustic, accelerometer and SPOT tags, which work in coordination with a global positioning satellite. When a tagged shark approaches the surface of the water, its tracker will emit a “ping” to inform researchers of its location.

According to OCEARCH, “great white sharks are central to the functioning of ecosystems and the maintenance of biodiversity”. The tagging helps researchers learn about the migration habits of sharks, and how and where they mate and raise their young. As the summer shark feeding season heats up, East Coast anglers can expect to hear more pings from great white sharks cruising through local waters.

Hello and welcome to the Tuesday edition of the New York & New Jersey Energy newsletter. We’ll take a look at the week ahead and pick up on what you might have missed last week.

WILDFIRE BURNS IN NJ —Philadelphia Inquirer’s Ximena Conde: “A wildfire in Wharton State Forest in southern New Jersey spread to 11,000 acres on Monday as officials said it was on track to become the largest blaze in state forest in 15 years. First spotted Sunday morning along a remote section of the Mullica River and fueled by dry, windy forest conditions, the blaze quickly reached Gloucester, Burlington and Atlantic counties townships. No injuries were reported. The blaze, 50% contained Monday afternoon, is expected to be fully contained later this week — but could consume about 15,000 acres by then, New Jersey Fire Department Chief Greg McLaughlin said. , during a press conference on Monday afternoon. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but McLaughlin said officials have ruled out natural causes.

— Last year there were 946 wildfires in New Jersey, burning about two acres each on average. That’s about 500 fewer fires than usual. But climate change is expected to worsen the fire season and make it harder to predict, prompting the state to work from February to communicate the risk of fires this year. The state considers a “major” fire to be any fire that burns more than 100 acres.

DEIS FOR OCEAN WIND 1 The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management on Friday released its draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Ørsted and PSEG-backed offshore wind project, known as Ocean Wind 1. The project involves installing up to 98 wind turbines at approximately 15 miles off Ocean City.

— The most significant impacts — those considered potentially “major” — include effects on commercial fishing, shipping, marine mammals and the landscape.

— “Ocean Wind 1 recognizes and understands the importance of developing and delivering New Jersey’s first offshore wind farm in a responsible manner, ensuring that any environmental impact is avoided and minimized,” Maddy Urbish, an executive at Ørsted, said in a statement. “We appreciate the efforts of all federal agencies to provide the comprehensive analysis contained in the DEIS and look forward to reviewing it in detail as we begin a robust public engagement process over the coming weeks.”

— The office plans to hold three public hearings this summer on the impacts, July 14, 20 and 26. —Ry Rivard

NJT DISEASE — A federal judge ruled over the weekend that a union of railroad engineers must “immediately” tell its members to “cease and desist” from the work stoppages that upended New Jersey Transit service on Friday when more than 200 engineers declared themselves sick.

— Engineers, represented by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Agents, are working under a collective bargaining agreement that has expired since the end of 2019. New Jersey Transit sought an emergency court order this weekend for what it called an illegal work stoppage.

— According to court documents, a union official had emailed union members on June 13 about the June 16 holiday, which was commemorated by the state on Friday: “NJT has made it clear that engineers will not be paid for the holiday . Don’t let that deter you from celebrating THE HOLIDAY!!!”

— Following the judge’s order, the union has informed its members that it does not tolerate any kind of “strikes, work stoppages, slowdowns, work stoppages” or other similar operations.

– A court schedule for Tuesday morning in Camden will likely be postponed after the union agrees to comply with the judge’s order and agrees with NJ Transit to set another schedule to address the remaining issues in the case. —Ry Rivard

A draft environmental impact statement on from Ørsted The Ocean Wind 1 project shows how potential fisheries effects could figure into the Federal Office of Ocean Energy Management’s planning for the first commercial wind development off New Jersey.

So are the visuals of the construction of a 1,100 megawatt turbine array 13 miles offshore from Atlantic City, NJ, and other southern Jersey Shore resorts. The Ocean Wind 1 project — and the planned Atlantic Shores project on a neighboring federal lease to the north — have met fierce resistance in beach communities.

Up to 98 wind turbines and three offshore substations would generate electricity and send power through export cables to two outdated power plant sites onshore: the BL England site, a former coal-fired plant, and Oyster Creek, the nation’s first commercial nuclear power plant. power plant, now disused.

The 1,408-page draft environmental impact statement discusses BOEM’s preferred plan and its potential effects on wealthy and low-income coastal communities; marine mammals and other wild animals; fishing and maritime industries; tourism and leisure.

It offers alternatives to address objections and suggestions the agency heard during its scoping process. Some of these options include excluding potential wind turbine sites to reduce the visual effect of seeing the 900-foot-tall machines from the beach.

Other changes could move turbine locations away from underwater sand ridges and troughs – important seabed features that attract fish and are prime grounds for the area’s fishing fleet and charter boats.

The public review and 45-day comment period for the draft document officially opens on Friday, June 24. BOEM will host three virtual town hall meetings online:

– July 14 at 1 p.m. EST

– July 20 at 5 p.m.

– July 26 at 5 p.m.

Details regarding auditions and registration instructions will be posted on the BOEM website.

The turbine array would be built in a grid pattern, with turbine towers spaced 1 nautical mile by 0.8 nautical mile apart, in a southeast-northwest orientation.

The Ocean Wind 1 project will install up to 98 wind turbines on monopile foundations with rock scour protection. Picture Ørsted.

An alternative considers calls for a buffer zone between Ocean Wind and Atlantic Shores between 0.8 and 1.08 nautical miles wide. This is based on discussions with the Coast Guard, the Responsible Offshore Development Alliance on behalf of the commercial fishing industry and individual fishers, the draft document says.

“A buffer would provide a clear visual distinction between the separate projects and would provide sufficient maneuvering space” for surface ships and helicopters, planes that will be used for turbine maintenance, according to the document.

But a concession sought by the commercial surfclam fleet – 2 nautical mile spacing between turbine towers – was denied by BOEM analysis.

Reducing the number of turbine locations so much would make the project unfeasible, the draft document says. The 2-mile spacing would cut the turbine layout plan by two-thirds and fall well short of New Jersey’s 2019 1,100 MW solicitation award for the project, the analysis found.

Dredge fisheries for scallops and surf clams account for most commercial landings in Ocean Wind Lease Area 1, according to National Marine Fisheries Service data cited in the draft EIS.

The document acknowledges that the surfclam fishery is most likely to be affected by Ocean Wind 1. Ocean Wind 1 is off Absecon Inlet, where Gardner’s Basin and Clam Creek at the north end of Atlantic City are a historic home port for the clam fleet.

“While Ocean Wind’s navigational safety risk assessment shows that it is technically possible to navigate and maneuver fishing vessels and mobile gear in the wind farm area, BOEM is aware that the maneuverability in the wind farm area may vary depending on many factors including vessel size, fishing gear or method used and environmental conditions such as wind, sea state, current and visibility,” the agency’s analysts wrote.

“Further, BOEM recognizes that even where it is possible to fish in the wind farm area, some anglers may still consider it unsafe to do so. Additionally, operating in the wind farm area with other vessels and gear types present may restrict vessel maneuverability.

The fishing industry has also requested a minimum burial depth for cables of 8-10ft to avoid interactions with fishing gear – or if lesser depth is permitted, using or, remote monitoring to ensure that the cables remain sufficiently deep in the seabed. The plan calls for a total of 384 miles of submarine cables.

Ocean Wind’s developers offer target burial depths of 4 to 6 feet, with final depths to be coordinated with regulators. According to BOEM, burial depths and remote monitoring can be addressed among the mitigation measures in the final environmental impact statement without adding it as an alternative measure in the draft document.

An alternative under consideration is to re-route the export cable north from Ocean Wind to the Oyster Creek site. According to the plan, the cable would make landfall at Island Beach State Park north of Barnegat Inlet, be buried through the barrier island, then under Barnegat Bay to the old nuclear power plant.

The exact route could be modified to minimize disturbance to submerged aquatic vegetation in the shallow bay, such as eelgrass which is critical habitat for juvenile fish and blue crabs. Barnegat Bay is plagued by nutrient overload from stormwater runoff and resulting water quality issues that have reduced seagrass beds.

The draft document includes some details on how the construction and operation phases of Ocean Wind 1 would unfold.

Atlantic City will serve as the construction management base. Ørsted will rehabilitate a former marina area with 500 feet of waterfront off Absecon Inlet at the north end of town, and use the location as an ongoing operations and maintenance facility.

Foundation fabrication and delivery can be sourced from Paulsboro, NJ on the Delaware River or direct from Europe.

The turbines would be pre-assembled ashore and sent for installation from Norfolk, Virginia, or New Jersey’s new wind port at Hope Creek in the upper Delaware Bay. Both ports are vying to be major hubs for offshore wind projects in the mid-Atlantic.

The construction phase will be busy off the beaches of New Jersey. When installing the cables connecting the turbines and the three substations, up to 20 workboats can operate in a typical working day, according to the draft document.

As export cables are laid to BL England and Oyster Creek, up to 26 vessels could be at work.

After an expected lifespan of 35 years, all Ocean Wind structures and cables are expected to be decommissioned and removed, with the seabed cleared to a depth of 15 feet, according to the draft statement.

Mahwah GOP City Chairperson Tracy Miceli lost her own seat on the county committee after avoiding the organizing line to run with congressional candidate Frank Pallotta.

Michael Schnoll, a 20-year-old rising junior at Indiana University, was Mahwah’s 1st District top-voter. Schnoll received 79 votes on the Bergen County GOP line.

Charles Rabolli, Jr. won the second county committee seat, beating his running mate, Miceli, by four votes, 63 to 59.

It is unclear whether Miceli will retain the position of city president despite losing her own seat.

It was an impressive victory for Schnoll, who had been nominated to fill a vacant seat in another district on his 18th birthday. He is an intern for Assemblyman Bob Auth (R-Old Tappan.

Miceli, 64, is a former Montville councillor. Rabolli, 59, chairman of the Mahwah zoning board, is a former prosecutor and president of the Passaic County Bar Association.

Rabolli and his wife, who did not seek re-election, were the holders of the 1st constituency. Schnoll and Miceli were appointed to fill vacancies in districts where they did not reside.

Pallotta won his hometown of Mahwah by 144 votes, 54%-44%, over his main opponent, Marine combat veteran Nick DeGregorio. But DeGregorio won Mahwah’s 1st District, based in the city’s Cragmere section, by 13 votes, 50%-43%.

In the general election, Pallotta faces three terms from Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff).

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has intervened in the case of a Moroccan who was sentenced to death alongside two Britons for allegedly fighting Russian forces.

The Strasbourg-based court will tell the Russian government that it must ensure that the death sentence imposed on Brahim Saadoune is not carried out.

Mr Saadoune was sentenced to death on the same day as Shaun Pinner, 48, from Bedfordshire, and Aiden Aslin, 28, from Newark in Nottinghamshire.

It is not known whether Mr. Pinner and Mr. Aslin have made requests to the ECtHR.

The men were found guilty of taking steps towards a violent power grab, in a court in the self-declared Donetsk People’s Republic.

Britain maintains that Mr. Aslin and Mr. Pinner are legitimate members of the Ukrainian military and should be treated as prisoners of war.

The three men were accused of being mercenaries after fighting with Ukrainian troops.

Interfax, a Russian news agency, said they could appeal their convictions.

Mr. Aslin and Mr. Pinner were members of regular Ukrainian military units fighting in Mariupol, the southern port city that has seen some of the heaviest fighting since Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.

The ECHR said Mr Saadoune is a Moroccan citizen who was born in 2000 and moved to Ukraine in 2019 to study in Kyiv.

He added that in November 2021, he left Kyiv for military training and was then deployed to join the detached 36th Marine Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Mariupol.

The European Court of Human Rights said he was sentenced to death by a “DPR court” on June 9, adding that two British nationals were also sentenced to death on the same day.

On June 14, Mr. Saadoune’s representative filed an application with the European Court under Article 39 to secure his treaty rights.

The court asked the Russian government to provide information in two weeks to show what actions and measures have been taken to ensure respect for Mr. Saadoune’s treaty rights.

After its exclusion from the Council of Europe on March 16, the Russian Federation remains bound by the European Convention on Human Rights with regard to acts or omissions that took place until September 16, according to a spokesperson. word of the Council of Europe.

The owners of a nursing home have expressed their devastation following the death of two of its residents in a boating accident.

The bodies of the two disabled people were found last week at Roadford Lake, near Okehampton, Devon.

They were staying at Burdon Grange care home near Beaworthy.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of two much loved members of our community.

“Our hearts go out to the families, loved ones and friends of those who have lost their lives, as well as to our residents and staff at our care home.

“Our thoughts are also with one of our residents, who remains hospitalized, and his family.

“We would like to thank the emergency services for their quick response to the tragedy and their continued support during this extremely difficult time.

“We would politely ask for time to deal with this tragedy.”

Six people were thrown into the water when the motorboat capsized on the afternoon of June 8.

Two people were taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.

One woman in her 50s continues to receive treatment, while the other is discharged from hospital.

The other two were taken out of the water and checked by paramedics before being sent back to the scene.

Devon and Cornwall Police and the Marine Casualties Investigation Branch (MAIB) have opened inquiries.

The force also liaises with the Coroner’s Office in Exeter and Greater Devon.

A coroner’s spokesman said “preliminary inquests are ongoing at this time.”

Last week, the MAIB declined to comment on reports that the victims were in wheelchairs at the time, or whether investigators would seek to determine if they were strapped into the boat and wearing buoyancy aids.

South West Lakes Trust, which manages Roadford Lake near Dartmoor, said its on-site activity center will be closed until further notice.

French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist alliance is expected to retain its parliamentary majority after the first round of voting, according to projections on Sunday.

Projections based on partial election results showed that nationally, Mr Macron’s party and its allies won around 25-26% of the vote.

This put them neck and neck with a new left-wing coalition made up of hard-left supporters, socialists and environmentalists.

More than 6,000 candidates, ranging in age from 18 to 92, were running for 577 seats in the French National Assembly in the first round of elections on Sunday.

The two-round voting system is complex and not commensurate with national support for a party. For the French races that did not have a decisive winner on Sunday, up to four candidates who obtain at least 12.5% ​​support will face each other in a second round of voting on June 19.

Consumer concerns about rising inflation dominated the campaign, but voter enthusiasm remained muted.

Hard-left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon, who had hoped the election would propel him to the post of prime minister, was only among a small number of voters as he cast his ballot in Marseille, a southern port city.

On the opposite coast of France, a small crowd gathered to watch Mr Macron as he arrived to vote in the English Channel resort town of Le Touquet.

Following Mr Macron’s re-election in May, his centrist coalition was seeking an outright majority that would allow him to implement his campaign promises, including tax cuts and raising France’s retirement age from 62 at age 65.

But Sunday’s projection shows the party and Mr Macron’s allies could struggle to secure more than half of the assembly seats this time around.

Polling agencies have estimated that Mr. Macron’s centrists could win anywhere from 255 to more than 300 seats, while Mr. Melenchon’s left-wing coalition could win more than 200 seats.

The National Assembly has the last word over the Senate with regard to the passing of laws.

Mr Melenchon’s platform includes a significant increase in the minimum wage, lowering the retirement age to 60 and freezing energy prices, which have soared due to the war in Ukraine. He is an anti-globalization arsonist who has called on France to withdraw from NATO and “disobey” EU rules.

Even though Mr Macron beat his far-right rival Marine Le Pen in the second round of the presidential election, France’s legislative elections are traditionally a tough race for far-right candidates. Rivals from other parties tend to coordinate or withdraw to increase the chances of beating far-right candidates in the second ballot.
