Together ! and Nupes equally, Nupes activists believe in it and the defense at the November 13 trial

Did you miss the news this early morning? We’ve put together a recap to help you see things more clearly.

Equal with Nupes, the Macron camp will have to fight to obtain an absolute majority

We will know next Sunday if the glass is half full or empty for Emmanuel Macron. Arrived at near equality in front of the Nupes in the first round of the legislative elections, the camp of the Head of State will have to fight against the united left to retain the absolute majority after a first round marked by record abstention. . Almost two months after the re-election of Emmanuel Macron, the outgoing majority under the label Ensemble! obtained 25.75% of the votes, or 21,442 votes more than the Nupes (LFI, PCF, PS and EELV) gathered behind Jean-Luc Mélenchon (25.66%), out of 23.3 million voters. Both sides have a week to ward off the abstention and disinterest of the French, which reached a new record at 52.49%, exceeding that of 2017 (51.3%). The Macron camp, however, retains the advantage in the projections of the 577 seats of deputies, with a range of 255 to 295 seats, ahead of the Nupes (150 to 210), according to the polling institutes, with an absolute majority at 289 seats.

At Nupes HQ, we still dream of sending Mélenchon to Matignon

After the results of the first round of the legislative elections, the left-wing activists present at Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s HQ still hoped to send their leader to Matignon. “We see that victory is possible. It’s our turn to govern now, to implement our plan to transform society,” said Christian, one of the activists. “By uniting the left, we succeeded in mobilizing those disappointed by the presidential election. I’m not getting fired up, but tonight we’re first, “said Pierre Castex, a 19-year-old rebellious activist. After the announcement of the results, Jean-Luc Mélenchon declared: “I call on our people to surge next Sunday, to definitively reject the disastrous projects of the majority of Mr. Macron. »
