“If popular circles are not going to vote” in the presidential election of 2022, “We will be crushed”, considers the candidate of La France insoumise (LFI), Jean-Luc Mélenchon, in an interview granted to the daily The Dauphiné Libéré, Thursday August 26. Corn “If the participation reaches the normal level of 80%, we arrive at the second round”, he adds. The leader of the “rebellious” specifies that“It is obvious that it is [sa] last application “ and that he is “The only one not to organize a career”. Thursday, the summer days of LFI, called “Amfis”, began for four days in Châteauneuf-sur-Isère (Drôme).

In addition, he once again castigates the sanitary pass, which he describes as“Dangerous illusion for our society”. “This is all organized in spite of common sense. The start of the school year is not prepared to face the health crisis ”, he assures, estimating that, for the third dose of vaccine against Covid-19, ” anybody [n’a] proved anything about its usefulness “.

“A government coalition after the second round”

Noting that the candidate for the primary ecologist Eric Piolle and the national secretary of Europe Ecology-Les Verts (EELV), Julien Bayou, “Resume” his idea of “Popular federation”, Mr. Mélenchon emphasizes “Solid convergences between large sectors of political ecology and especially of associative ecology”, who “Allow us to imagine a government coalition after the second round”.

“But we must also accept the truth: our differences are not secondary. In particular on Europe, on France’s defense and independence strategies, on the retirement system, he adds. Since it was impossible to come to an agreement before the election, it is up to the voters to decide. “
