This is not a personal defeat, because my job is to be a school teacher, and I am only a political activist. It just so happens that for two years, I had the chance to do it in the National Assembly. Now, I will continue the fight with all these people, in this square.“, reacted Léo Walter (NFP – LFI) a few minutes after the final results for the 2nd constituency of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence (49.03% against 50.97% for Sophie Vaginay).

Between local disappointment and national satisfaction

Among nearly 200 people gathered on the Place du Bourget in Forcalquier, Léo Walter concedes that it is indeed “of a political defeat that seems politically unfair. There are people who talked about merit all the time, and it seems to me that we very much deserved to win. That is a disappointment“A disappointment that was also visible on the faces of some of his supporters.”He did what he could“, says an activist. Tears and pouts that counterbalance the cheers and applause in light of the first national estimates that place the New Popular Front in the lead.”We had them in the National Assembly” shouts another activist.

It was therefore a mixture of emotions which invaded the sympathisers of Léo Walter in Forcalquier, who affirms that “the morale is good“, repeating this same credo: “We are not giving up. We will continue the fight.“.

Will this fight take place in the upcoming municipal elections in 2026 in Forcalquier?There will be a list in Forcalquier. Afterwards, if the question is whether I will be the head of the list, you are once again personalizing things. On the other hand, what is interesting is the strength that we see in this place, there is enough to make ten municipal lists“, concludes a smiling Léo Walter, determined to make the voice of the left heard in the department.
