The former President of the Republic had urged the rebellious leader this weekend to “shut up” to mitigate the “rejection” he would arouse among voters, and thus “do a service” to the New Popular Front.

It is the response of the shepherd to the shepherdess. While the former President of the Republic François Hollande, candidate for the early legislative elections in Corrèze, had urged Jean-Luc Mélenchon on Sunday to “to shut up”to mitigate the “rejection” that it would arouse in public opinion and thus “do a service” at the New Popular Front, the rebellious leader responded in due form on Monday evening. Guest of «The Event» on France 2, the tutelary figure of La France Insoumise returned to the comments made on Saturday evening suggesting his possible entry into Matignon in the event of victory – “I intend to govern this country”he declared on France 5 -, setting fire to the left.

“What I have a problem with is the speed at which people submit and become afraid. Those who say “he must be silent, he must be silent”, but ultimately Hollande, it is he who should be silent”, squeaked the three-time presidential candidate. Before changing his mind in a joking tone: “Don’t be silent, he has so many good words, so many scores to settle that I look forward to seeing it with relish.”

“I am not a candidate for anything”

Concerning the internal appointment to his camp to be head of the cohabitation government, Jean-Luc Mélenchon recalled that he was not “not concerned by this battle”. “I was asked a question, I said “I am not eliminating myself and I am not imposing myself”, it is up to the party leaders (to decide), it will be the (parliamentary) group most important (to decide), developed the former Marseille MP. Who hammered: “I am not a candidate for anything”.

“Among the Insoumis there are people capable of being prime minister, who have been prepared for that, notably by me,” also praised Jean-Luc Mélenchon, citing in turn the coordinator of La France Insoumise Manuel Bompard, the former leader of the rebellious deputies Mathilde Panot, or even the elected representative of Val-de-Marne Clémence Guetté. “I can perfectly be a minister among others or not be a minister at allhe thundered, visualizing the future government team. I don’t have a career like that. That’s all behind me. What is before me is the political role to play: resuscitating the left around the breaking line.”
