Presidential 2022. Jean-Luc Mélenchon: “The proposals for union I made two years ago, I was told no”

The left is the only political family to stand within 100 days of the first round with an uncertain cast. It is composed for the moment of five main candidates, without any being able to compete with the outgoing president and the rights. On France Inter this Monday, Jean-Luc Mélenchon once again swept aside the calls to participate in a primary launched by Anne Hidalgo, the Socialist Party candidate, and Christiane Taubira, who plans to run.

“I made the proposals for union two years ago” “A certain left wing spends its time moaning and whining on the theme ‘if there is no union we have lost in advance’, deplores the leader of La France insoumise. The union proposals I made two years ago. I was told no. In the regional elections, we were excluded from certain lists, by the very people who are asking us for union today. I don’t hold a grudge, but out of respect for France, which has to be governed in less than 100 days, we have to be ready. It wouldn’t be serious to say ‘Come on, let’s start all over again’. “

The deputy of Bouches-du-Rhône, who “obviously” accepts the dialogue on ideas, considers above all that “what we lack is not union, but mobilization”, with reference to abstention, which traditionally penalizes the left more. He recalls that “in 1981 when François Mitterrand won, there was also a Communist candidate in the first round. [Georges Marchais, NDLR] who made almost 16 points. “

“Who wants to rule with us? “

Jean-Luc Mélenchon also underlines that he is today the best placed candidate, which would justify a hypothetical union taking place naturally behind him. “I’ve been leading the polls for several months, so isn’t that enough?” He asks. Several studies give it a slight dynamic in recent weeks, sometimes placing it above 10% of voting intentions in the first round of the election, in fifth position.

Also asked about Christiane Taubira’s opinion, according to whom the lefts “can govern five years together”, Jean-Luc Mélenchon answers: “If I get to the second round, which is one of the probabilities, it is obvious that I will say ‘Who wants to govern with us?’ “.
