Legislative: an Attal-Bardella-Mélenchon debate under study

The poster would, without a doubt, cause some noise. A lot of noise. And all the more so since it would acknowledge the existence of three blocs in the battle for the anticipated legislative elections, triggered by the dissolution pronounced on Sunday by Emmanuel Macron. According to our information, a debate project between Prime Minister Gabriel Attal, the president of the National Rally Jordan Bardella and the LFI leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, on a major television channel, is under study. “It’s being set up,” whispers a witness in the front row, without further details. The date of June 24 would even have been brought forward.

How will the members of the “Popular Front” react?

If the casting seems obvious on the side of the presidential camp, Gabriel Attal having been charged by Emmanuel Macron with “directing the campaign”, as on the side of the RN where Jordan Bardella appears as the putative Prime Minister in the event of his party’s victory… the question of Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s participation in such a game is, on the other hand, explosive. If he says he is reserving his response, those around him claim to know nothing. It also remains to be seen what the reaction of its partners in the “Popular Front” currently under construction would be.

Underlying this burning question: what role for Jean-Luc Mélenchon in this campaign and, above all, in the event of a victory on the left? This Wednesday evening, on France 2, the latter did not close the door to the idea of ​​taking the head of this coalition in Matignon, in the event of victory in the early legislative elections – “I am not eliminating myself but I am not “Don’t impose it,” he said. Knowing well that moving too far forward, by agreeing to represent the left during a tripartite debate, for example, could derail negotiations on the left.
