The presidential candidate of rebellious France, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, considers that “if popular circles will not vote” in the presidential election in 2022 “we will be crushed”.
But “if the participation reaches the normal level of 80%, we arrive at the second round”, adds Jean-Luc Mélenchon in an interview this Thursday in the newspaper The Dauphiné Libéré, while the LFI Summer Amphis begin for four days in Chateauneuf-sur-Isère (Drôme).
Convergences with Eric Piolle and Julien Bayou
The leader of the Insoumis specifies that “it is obvious that this is my last candidacy”, and that he is “the only one not to organize a career”.
Noting that the candidate for the primary ecologist Eric Piolle, or the secretary general of the Greens Julien Bayou “resume” his idea of ”popular federation”, Jean-Luc Mélenchon underlines “the convergences, solid, between large sectors of political ecology and especially of associative ecology ”, which“ allow us to imagine a government coalition after the second round ”.
The health pass, “a dangerous illusion”
“But we must also accept the truth: our differences are not secondary. In particular on Europe, on France’s defense and independence strategies, on the retirement system, ”he adds. “Since it was impossible to agree before the election, it is up to the voters to decide”.
On another subject, he once again castigates the sanitary pass, “a dangerous illusion for our society”. “This is all organized in spite of common sense. The start of the school year is not prepared to face the health crisis “, he assures, estimating that for the third dose of vaccine against the Covid-19,” nobody has proved anything to us about his utility “.
