Sorry. My bad.

No doubt about it ! I will try do better now that I know about it.

Thank you Sir.

Is it because « If we assume global spatial independence, we can give for any projection matrix M the spectrum of eigenvalues as well as the saddle point approximation of local Moran’s Ii in analytical terms. This increases the computational efficiency as it avoids reverting to numerical calculations of the spectrum of eigenvalues and finding iteratively the root of the saddle point equation » ?

As I could not find any good reason why (2*t2<t1^2), I turned to your last remark : Changing NUTS_L1 into a factor before using it into the loop. It actually was the issue. I miscoded the factor, keeping character chains and not transforming them into numbers.

https://cran.r-project.org/package=spdep, the development site of spdep is

https://github.com/r-spatial/spdep/. Never use non-authorised copies. To see the source, simply type the function name. Use debug(localmoran.exact) to step through the function while it runs, to see the values of the objects you are in doubt about. Do not do this in RStudio, its debugging interface tries to be far too clever.
