If the left comes to power, it “will not be able to govern by decrees and 49.3”, believes Raphaël Glucksmann

MEP Raphaël Glucksmann, leader of Place publique, judged on Wednesday in an interview with New Obs that the left will not be able to “not to govern by decrees and 49.3”. It will be necessary “talking with people you fought against, without denying yourself”, he said.

The former head of the Socialist Party – Place publique list for the European elections, who joined the New Popular Front created in a few days by the left-wing forces to counter a majority of the National Rally in the Assembly, believes that, without an absolute majority, “the only possible way” for the left “is parliamentary democracy”.

“Now it is up to the Assembly to build majorities. The executive will become the executor. We will not be able to govern by decrees and 49.3…”he said, in a dig at the presidential camp, which has used these tools a lot, but also at the “insoumis” leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who promised to use decrees to repeal retirement at 64 or increase the minimum wage if the left found itself in a position to govern.

Issue a decree to establish the minimum wage at 1,600 euros net, “This is not a method of government”Mr. Glucksmann believes, before insisting: “And that won’t last long. The left must have the power of initiative, but make it bear fruit through discussions with other elected officials.”

“If we are closed, sectarian, if we do not discuss with anyone other than ourselves, we will commit a democratic error and a total strategic error.”adds the social democrat, who believes that it is necessary “debate with other parliamentary groups, understand the reactions, see how we can bring on board people who are not on our side”.

“This will not happen by repeating ‘my whole program, nothing but my program’, and telling others: you are here as spectators of the deployment of our minority omnipotence!”he continues in a new criticism aimed at the leader of LFI. The left “You have no choice, you have to talk to people you have fought, without denying yourself, and convince them”says Mr. Glucksmann, while acknowledging that there will be “a learning moment that risks being chaotic…”.

He also claims that Emmanuel Macron did not call him to offer him the position of Prime Minister and that he did not “didn’t ask for anything”. The MEP intends to get down to business “to the construction of a great French democratic force, embracing political ecology”. “With the building of European power, these are the two things that will occupy my life in the months and years to come.”assures Mr. Glucksmann.
