Europeans 2024: Le Foll calls on the PS and EELV to break with “the radicalism” of LFI
Former socialist minister Stéphane Le Foll calls on the PS and environmentalists again on Friday to break with “the radicalism” of Nupes, of which LFI holds “the steering wheel”, judging that the European elections of 2024 will be an opportunity to make this choice, without which some will leave the ship of the PS.
“The challenge of the 2024 European elections will be a simple choice. Stay in the radicalism of the Nupes or remain within the European socialist family. This question will be decisive for the future of many within the PS, including mine” , he assures in a column published in Le Point.
“Are we fungible in the ideological corpus of LFI?” and “are we condemned to think like Jean-Luc Mélenchon? This is the whole question that the left will have to decide”, insists Mr. Le Foll, also mayor of Le Mans.
Contemptuous with other tenors of the PS of the left alliance (LFI, PS, EELV, PCF) sealed in May under the Nupes banner, Stéphane Le Foll speaks while LFI deputy Manuel Bompard, one of the architects of the agreement, raised on Sunday the idea of a union of the left for the distant European elections of 2024.
“The logic of tension and + dog bed + displayed by the Nupes will never benefit the camp of progress, but indeed that of the far right, (…) now in a position to win” during the presidential election of 2027 , he is alarmed, judging that by “handing over the steering wheel to LFI”, the left is in fact “condemned to remain in the minority”.
“Disobedience as a method of government, either vis-à-vis Europe or at home, by systematically questioning the republican order, cannot be our choice, nor our ambition”, continues Stéphane Le Foll, again reproaching the boss of the PS Olivier Faure for not having succeeded in defining an “original” positioning.
Calling for the construction of a “new left”, he believes that it should “get out of the logic of demands”, “will not condemn the police but will help them carry out their missions in compliance with the republican rules” or “will defend secularism without compromise”. So many spades to the leader of LFI Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
