”We want to work together”
The head of state mentioned discussions “from the communists to the LR”, immediately dismissing the RN and LFI which for him are not “government parties”.

“I believe that the first person who within the Nupes would put a single finger in Emmanuel Macron’s proposal, it would be an absolute purge,” he insisted.
“We have set up a parliamentary intergroup, we want to work together, we are going to work as a group”, he assured, recalling that the Nupes was going to table “next week a major social emergency law in which there will be the increase in the minimum wage, the unfreezing of the index point, the revaluation of civil servants by 10%, and no pension below the minimum wage for a full career”.

The goal is to form a “new government of action” in early July, he said in an interview with AFP.
“Let’s say that I have a slightly different vision. My own vision is that I don’t believe it can be done through device agreements,” François told BFMTV on Sunday. Bayrou.
“I think that the President of the Republic has no idea at all that coalitions will become possible” but “perhaps the sense of persuasion will make things happen”, added the centrist leader, who believes rather “to a government of goodwill and a majority of ideas”.
