Does the Nupes alliance still have a future? Jean-Luc Mélenchon estimated on Sunday, in an interview with 20 Minutes, that separate lists for Europeans, the privileged choice of certain left-wing leaders, would run the risk of an end to the Nupes, concluded in May 2022. He judged "possible" the hypothesis of an end to the alliance in the event that its four members each presented lists to the Europeans which will take place from June 6 to 9, 2024, before mentioning certain names which could represent the Insoumis at the next presidential.
"I will defend the Nupes as much as necessary", but the European "are a proportional ballot in one round, one of the only elections where you can vote as you want", Marine Tondelier, patron saint of the Greens, declared again on Wednesday.
The former presidential candidate hasn't completely ruled out running for a fourth time: "No one can say that. In all circumstances, I will play a role. Jean-Luc Mélenchon, however, said he was ready to give François Ruffin's call for donations to prepare for 2027. "Why not? François is a rising figure in our family. »
Stressing that François Ruffin is "sometimes a little distant from the program yet signed together", the former leader of the Insoumis welcomes however that several possible candidates have the shoulders to apply. “There are already Manuel Bompard, Mathilde Panot, Clémence Guette… The Insoumis movement is rich in high-level personalities”.
