Legislature: who is Amy Ba, candidate against Quatennens in the name of the “values” of the New Popular Front?

She is a young woman, 27 years old, a feminist activist from Lille, member of the Noustoutes collective. Amy Bach announced this Saturday her candidacy in the first constituency of the North against Adrien Quatennens, whom she calls “the Achilles heel of the left.” This close friend of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the outgoing MP, was in fact drawn by LFI to this constituency on Friday, despite his four-month suspended prison sentence for domestic violence.

His case has been debated for days on the left, particularly among socialists and environmentalists, with some saying they were outraged by the inauguration.

‘Full support’ from Lille mayor Martine Aubry

“I am a candidate to see the left strong and united in a semi-circle that carries all the values ​​of the New Popular Front,” she wrote in a press release, explaining that she unsuccessfully asked to be invested in by the movement instead of Adrien Quatennensa.”

“I want to continue the ideas and subversive program of the New Popular Front,” “a movement that restores collective hope,” insists the candidate, a public law graduate who has already worked in politics.

She has already received on social networks

Amy Bach says she is running “out of conscience and responsibility, having received numerous endorsements and requests to run” in a constituency that “has been on the left for 30 years” and which “therefore carries a low risk of far right”.
