For his part, the president of LR Christian Jacob estimated on RTL that “using public services like the swimming pool to promote religious concerns is an open door to everything”. “We are in the world of Islamo-leftists, of communitarians”, he continued, pleading to “regulate by law” the wearing of the burkini. The deputy LR Eric Ciotti had tabled in May a bill aimed at banning the burkini in public swimming pools in the name of secularism. Christian Jacob “wants us to take it back”. On the side of the majority, MP Pierre-Yves Bournazel (Horizons), close to former Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, also considered on Radio J that “the burkini is not the best promotion of equality between women and men”. Public swimming pools are “a place of neutrality” and “if necessary, the law will have to decide”.
