Defeat the far right at the polls and offer happy days to the Corsicans.”

This Monday, June 17, activists from the island section of La France Insoumise (LFI), A Manca, environmentalists and more generally left-wing sympathizers, were present in the southern neighborhoods of Bastia, in Lupino. Everyone came to Claude Papi Square to attend the official launch of the campaign of the “New Popular Front of Corsica”, led by Sacha Bastelica and his deputy Carla Vinciguerra, in the first constituency of Haute-Corse. “The moment is extremely seriousestimates Karl Tomasi, the campaign director. Corsica is one of the regions of France where the far right records its highest scores. We are happy to be there, even if it was difficult. But the left had to be present with a unique candidacy.”

Because, in the four constituencies of the island, one “single application“was not a foregone conclusion. The reason? Corsica was not part of the agreements in the national coalition of the New Popular Front.”It’s unfortunaterelates Sacha Bastelica. But I believe we have done even better, namely uniting the left locally, which is commendable.” A union which is not necessarily total in this first constituency, since Lutte Ouvrière (LO) still presented its candidate, in the person of Olivier Josué. Jean-François Paoli, vice-president of the Corsican federation of the radical party and opposition municipal councilor Unione per Bastia, is also a candidate. For their part, the island sections of the French Communist Party (PCF) and the Socialist Party (PS) have not submitted a candidacy. , but were not present for the campaign launch of this “New Popular Front of Corsica”.
