France insubordinate opens an internal investigation after accusations of sexual assault

La France Insoumise, like most Nupes executives, did not hesitate for a moment after the accusations of sexual violence against Taha Bouhafs. On Tuesday, the journalist was still widely supported after his decision to withdraw his candidacy from the legislative campaign, explaining that he “weathered an unprecedented storm of attacks”, with “every day a new slander” against him. Jean-Luc Mélenchon, followed by many rebels, immediately denounced “a pack (which) fought hard” against the candidate. This Wednesday, the party announces to launch an internal investigation into its former candidate, after accusations of sexual assault. And the same Nupes executives unambiguously support the alleged victims.

The party’s sexual violence monitoring committee was in fact “seized” on Monday after a testimony “relating to alleged facts of sexual violence alleged against Taha Bouhafs”. “Faced with the charges” and warned that he might not obtain the nomination “because of the seriousness of the alleged facts”, Taha Bouhafs “chosen to give up on his own”, indicates LFI. Saying Wednesday “to learn the accusations against Taha Bouhafs”, Jean-Luc Mélenchon tweeted : “The voice of women must be taken seriously. I am counting on the LFI ad hoc commission to establish the truth. »

An investiture called into question by the PCF

This new twist comes as LFI has just unveiled almost all of its candidates out of the 328 constituencies allocated to it within the framework of the New People’s Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) with the PS, EELV and the PCF. And also illustrates the tensions within this alliance.

The communist leader Fabien Roussel had asked Sunday to review the investiture of Taha Bouhafs, wishing it for the communist mayor of Vénissieux Michèle Picard, who says she is in the best position to win the left. But on Tuesday evening, LFI invested a new rebellious candidate, Idir Boumertit, deputy mayor of Vénissieux and former campaign director of Taha Bouhafs.
