Former President François Hollande is “favorable” with the agreement of “new Popular Front” with a view to the legislative elections, he underlined Thursday evening on TF1, while castigating Emmanuel Macron’s decision to dissolve the National Assembly. “What is essential is that the union was able to take place”, estimated the former head of state. Faced with the extreme right, “we go beyond differences”.

“I am in favor of this Popular Front” between LFI, PS, ecologists and communists, he underlined, while demanding the affirmation “a European orientation, a presence of France” in NATO, and the recognition that Hamas has committed “terrorist act” on October 7. In his eyes, the Insoumis leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon is not “not in a position to be able to claim a place in what could be a governmental future”he however clarified.

Previously, François Hollande denounced Emmanuel Macron’s decision to dissolve the National Assembly which “intervenes at the worst time and in the worst circumstances”, he lamented. He pleaded, in the second round, for support for the candidates best placed to “avoid the extreme right”even if they are “LR or the presidential “majority””, defending a “disclaimer principle” from the left if necessary.
