The leader of La France insoumise declared his “intention to govern” this Saturday, reiterating however that he does not “impose himself” as the natural Prime Minister of a government which would follow a left-wing majority in the Assembly national at the end of the legislative elections.

“I intend to govern this country.” The leader of France Insoumise (LFI) Jean-Luc Mélenchon affirmed this Saturday June 22 on France 5 that he was “obviously” ready to become Prime Minister if the left alliance won the legislative elections, despite the reluctance of several voices in his camp.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon returned to the necessary unity on the left which requires that it be “not the mess, not the bazaar, not the Permanent General Assembly, the pia-pia of the leftists who spend their time arguing among themselves “.

“We’re going to talk.”

While the LFI deputy François Ruffin affirmed that Jean-Luc Mélenchon was “right to withdraw” and that the head of the PS list in the European elections Raphaël Glucksmann estimated that the Insoumis would not be Prime Minister, could he all can you even access Matignon? “Of course,” replied Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

“I don’t eliminate myself and I don’t impose myself. I think it’s a formula that is quite respectful of the collective,” he added.

As for Raphaël Glucksmann, “we must not speak like that too quickly. We will discuss”, insisted Mr. Mélenchon who had said, ten days ago, “capable” of being Prime Minister in the event of victory of the New Popular Front made up of LFI, the PS, the Communist Party and the ecologists.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon thus affirmed that a consensus had been found among the left-wing allies for it to be “the most important parliamentary group which presents the candidate for Prime Minister”. The boss of the PS Olivier Faure, however, mentioned the need for a vote to decide who would be the possible left-wing Prime Minister.

Ruffin “took responsibility for a breakup”

This positioning of Jean-Luc Mélenchon has made the honey of his opponents who brandish the figure of the Insoumis like that of a scarecrow. The boss of the RN Jordan Bardella thus welcomed on the social network

“At least it’s clear. Voting NFP means voting for Jean-Luc Mélenchon in Matignon. And not a head will exceed”, wrote on the same social network the Minister of Industry Roland Lescure, like others members of the presidential camp.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon also considered that the European elections had decided in his favor his ideological “divergence” with François Ruffin who, according to him, “took responsibility for a rupture” by strongly protesting against the decision not to reinvest money. other outgoing elected officials with discordant voices, Raquel Garrido and Alexis Corbière.

Attributing to François Ruffin a “social democratic” line which he opposed to his own consisting of “breaking with the logic of the system”, he considered that the results of the European elections had proven him right.

According to him, the “social-democratic bloc” formed by the Greens and the socialists lost 440,000 votes in the European elections, compared to 2019, while “we, the Insoumis, from one European election to the next, we let’s win 1 million votes.
