Will the Nupes remain united for the next European elections in 2024? This Tuesday, Stéphane Le Foll, socialist dissident, indicated on Europe 1 that such an alliance is not a tenable logic in the long term, while La France insoumise wants to make a common list with the parties of the left alliance .
On the left, eyes are already on the 2024 European elections, and union under the Nupes banner is rather uncertain. This particular ballot is traditionally favorable to multiple party lists, regardless of their size. The socialist dissidents, who have still not swallowed the Nupes alliance during the last legislative elections, intend to stand apart, as Stéphane Le Foll implied on Tuesday morning on Europe 1.
The former Socialist Minister of Agriculture under François Hollande refuses to be associated with the leader of La France insoumise, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, and his radicalism. “This logic of radicality which leads to chaos is never favorable to the forces of progress”, he warned at the microphone of Lionel Gougelot.
Common positions between PS and LFI
The man who is now mayor of Le Mans continued his demonstration: “This is the historical, political observation. We can do it not only in our country, but when I look at what is happening in Italy and we are unfortunately going seeing him is what happens every time.” Stéphane Le Foll added that this decision will be decisive for the survival of the Socialist Party.
In the Nupes, it is the rebels who push for an alliance. Manuel Bompard, the chief negotiator, assures him: “90% of our European votes are common. Why not make a common list?” LFI, which has always experienced failures in European competitions, relies heavily on this alliance to achieve its first victory. It remains to be seen what will be the decision of the Greens and the Communists, for the moment very ambiguous on the subject.
