Six days remain before the first round in the legislative elections, and tension is building.
Francois Hollande attended Monday night's public meeting in Tulle in support of socialist Annick Taysse. He is running as an independent candidate for the "progressive right" constituency in Correze. Carole Delga was also present, a president of Occitanie, who is also against the alliance with La France Insoumise.
Former President of the Republic, Francois Hollande, lamented the "lackof credibility" of the left-wing alliance for the legislative elections as well as the "incantatory” proposals. Francois Hollande regards the Nupes program as "impracticable" and "inapplicable". That's all.
"Fellow"! Manuel Bompard chose a term that is not unfamiliar to say the least. Jean-Luc Melenchon's ex-campaign manager was responding to Emmanuel Macron saying that "no political group can impose a name [of Prime Minister] upon the president". The question is, of course, Jean-Luc Melenchon's desire to be "elected prime minister" following the legislative elections in the event that the Nupes win. The president can make an argument. "It is rare for one to win an election where he does not appear." The president selects the prime minister he will appoint by looking at parliament.
On Monday morning on Sud Radio, Jean-Luc Melenchon's lieutenant replied: "When he says to us that Jean-Luc Melenchon can't be Prime Minister because he won't appoint him", we respond by saying to him, "Bah yes, good men, you will name it."
Let's get down to the bottom. Nupes asks why Emmanuel Macron would be forced to appoint JeanLuc Melenchon. Manuel Bompard points out that, in addition to the "custom", which states that one must appoint "the person chosen from the alliance or formation which is head of the National Assembly", but also that the Prime Minister must have a vote for confidence in the National Assembly.
Concerning the argument of the president on Jean-Luc Melenchon's absence in Parliament in the event Nupes wins (because he is not standing for election), Manuel Bompard refers Emmanuel Macron directly to his own nominations. Jean Castex wasn't a deputy when he became Prime Minister. He was no more than Elisabeth Borne.
It is the form that causes the most trouble. Olivia Gregoire, a government spokeswoman, accused Bompard of "shamelessly flouting most elementary republican respect" for her use the term "bonhomme". Manuel Bompard continues to sign irony on Twitter. "I would have to say that I wanted annoy him that he wasn't anything or that he cynical, lazy." He said it would have been more respectful for the Republic, using terms used in the past by President of the Republic.
This tweet has not been digested. Jean-Luc Melenchon posted a tweet in response to the shooting death a young woman. He was riding with her in a car that was suspected of being involved in an accident that saw officials. "The police kill, and the factional group Alliance justifies shootings and the death because it "refused to comply". Shame! "Wrote the leader for Nupes.
Instant response from the Alliance police union implicated: The union announced its intention of filing a complaint against former president candidate.
It is not new that the opposition between the police union leader and La France insoumise leader is ongoing. The union announced that it would systematically file a complaint if Jean-Luc Melenchon questions it. In response to comments made on June 1, the last complaint was filed... on June 3. The previous? For remarks starting May 7, please refer to May 11. This is at most three complaints in a matter of a month.
It is difficult to win in the 15th District of Paris. In the 20th arrondissement, the Nupes candidate Danielle Simonnet and socialist Lamia El Alaraje, the outgoing deputy, are at odds. Last battle: The PS candidate was furious at her opponent, Jeremy Corbyn (MP for London, and most importantly former leader of British Labor Party), on Monday.
