A list of candidates for the 2024 European Elections? Regol (EELV) skeptical
EELV deputy national secretary Sandra Regol was skeptical on Monday about the interest of a left-wing union under the Nupes banner for the 2024 European elections, recalling the differences of the alliance members on European topics.
This track was mentioned Sunday in Le Figaro by the LFI deputy Manuel Bompard, right-hand man of Jean-Luc Mélenchon. “I am in favor of it. I think that’s the goal we need to set for ourselves. There is an expectation, we cannot return everyone to our corner”, he estimated, arguing: “90% of our votes in the European Parliament are common with socialists and environmentalists”.
Interviewed on franceinfo on Monday, Sandra Regol initially believed that the option of a “common list will depend on what the activists choose”, stressing that there are still two years left before the European elections in May 2024.
Nevertheless, she noted, “there is a great logic in having a parliamentary alliance of the Nupes (at the national level, editor’s note) but there is perhaps a little less to have a European alliance of the Nupes, because it is on this level that our visions do not conform” to each other, she added.
Of the 650 measures of the “shared government program” sealed between LFI, EELV, the PS and the PCF in May for the June legislative elections, 33 were said to be “in nuance”, according to Jean-Luc Mélenchon, that is to say the subject of differences between the partners. This is the case, for example, on Europe, NATO or even nuclear power.
On Europe, the text stated that the signatories are “ready not to respect European rules”. “Because of our stories, we are talking about disobeying for some, derogating transiently for others,” it says.
