In a press release published Friday, the socialist deputy refuses to “associate himself with the investiture of LFI linked to the agreement because of the deep differences with the leadership of this formation.”

Jérôme Guedj remains straight in his boots. The day after the agreement reached between the main left-wing parties with a view to the early legislative elections of June 30 and July 7, the PS deputy announced Friday evening that he would be running in the socialist colors… but without the label of the coalition ” New popular front” in his sixth constituency of Essonne. In a press release, the socialist, who hears more than ever “beat the far right”denied, “apart from the beauty of words”of “join the inauguration of LFI linked to this agreement”. And this, “due to deep differences with the leadership of this formation relating to the brutalization of public debate.”

Claiming to have it “intimately and violently suffered”, the Parisian echoes the virulent criticism of the Insoumis concerning his positions on Gaza, less pro-Palestinian than his comrades, since the Islamist attack by Hamas on October 7 on the Hebrew state. The conflict between Israel and the terrorist organization and the origins of the new anti-Semitism in France have crystallized tensions on the left. Until the Nupes explode in the fall.

While Jean-Luc Mélenchon had accused Jérôme Guedj of having “denied the most constant principles of the left of Judaism in France”, the socialist had entrusted to World that “for the first time in (his) political life, (him) was referred to (his) Judaism.” “We can be radical on economic, social or ecological issues while being uncompromising on republican, sovereign and secular values. This line does not exist, it can win”, he continued in May to Le Point, a few days after being whistled during a demonstration at the Trocadéro for the release of Israeli hostages. Relations being execrable with the former LFI presidential candidate, he promised him a “fight without pity”.

By “truth” And “loyalty” towards the voters of his territory, Jérôme Guedj considers a month later that his “historic fight against the far right, against anti-Semitism and racism” must “rest on the defense of democratic and republican values.” If the “bringing together the left, environmentalists and all progressives is essential”he “must be based on a clear line and practices”. Invited to react on BFMTV, the first secretary of the PS Olivier Faure said “perfectly respect (one’s) choice.”
