” Why always me ? But because my comrades trust me. We must not change. Why did Arlette (Laguiller) run for president six times? Because it’s simpler. » From the Sunday evening of the dissolution, no dissension in the sparse ranks of Lutte Ouvrière, no investiture debate; all eyes were unanimously turned towards Dominique Revoy, the designated representative. A Dominique Revoy who refutes the term “Laguiller de Dole”, a question of modesty no doubt. However, the Lutte Ouvrière candidate for the legislative elections is identified, known and… persevering. She lost count of the elections she ran in, without much success. We tried to do it for her: the retired teacher (69 years old) ran to our knowledge four times for mayor of Dole, and six times (seven now) for deputy, with a result of 2.67%. in 1997, his “record”. Tenacity. And lucidity. His testimonial candidacies, without any chance of winning, have the merit in his eyes of “allowing us to be counted. »

“We exist. Whatever happens “

“We” are the “workers,” a recurring word in his mouth. “We want to be present. Even if we know that it won’t change anything. » She is not risking any prediction this time “I can’t read coffee grounds. We will achieve a small score, yes, but we exist. Whatever happens. A simple increase in the level of votes would constitute a guarantee of hope.”

No voting instructions

His most recent attempt (legislative 2022) earned him the result of 1.43%. Not enough to make him want to give up. Dominique Revoy chose his camp at the age of 17, and never left it. A radical formation, in any case uncompromising. The speech does not change one iota from one election to the next. The distrust towards this left embodied this time by the New Popular Front remains intact. For the second round, Dominique Revoy lets his voters “vote what they want”. No instructions. No transaction. “We are not politicians. We don’t have a career. We are certainly a minority, but we exist. Macron gives us the floor, let’s take advantage of it! »

Since her announcement, the lady has received messages of “moral and financial support”. A guarantee that she is not alone.
