Believing that the “problem is not the union but the mobilization” of the voters, the rebellious presidential candidate, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, renewed, this Monday, his refusal of negotiations or of primary on the left to reach a single application.

The left is the only political family to stand within 100 days of the first round with an uncertain cast, composed for the moment of five main candidates, without any being able to compete with the outgoing president and the rights .

“It is a question of governing in less than 100 days”

The calls to participate in a primary launched by the socialist Anne Hidalgo and the former Minister of Justice Christiane Taubira, who “plans” to be a candidate in mid-January? “It would not be serious to say” we start all over again with less than 100 days “, opposed Jean-Luc Mélenchon on France Inter. “We have to respect the voters. I made the union proposals two years ago with the popular federation, ”he said.

Now “it is a question of governing in less than 100 days, we need a program and teams”, added the deputy of Bouches-du-Rhône, according to whom “we can only bring France together if we are already capable of gather on ideas ”. “What we lack is not union, but mobilization,” he said, referring to abstention, which traditionally affects the left more.

“Who wants to rule with us”

“A certain left spends its time moaning and whining on the theme” if there is no union we have lost in advance “”, he lamented. “I’ve been leading the polls for several months, so isn’t that enough?” “, Said the Insubordinate, while several studies attribute a slight dynamic to it in recent weeks, sometimes placing it above 10% of voting intentions.

Asked about the opinion of Christiane Taubira, according to whom the lefts “can govern five years together”, Jean-Luc Mélenchon replied: “If I get to the second round, which is one of the probabilities, it is obvious that I will say “Who wants to rule with us”? “. He recalled: “in 81 when François Mitterrand won, there was also in the first round a Communist candidate (Georges Marchais) who scored almost 16 points”.
