“It shocks me”: for Manuel Valls, François Hollande’s candidacy for the legislative elections is an “aberration”

François Hollande announced on Saturday that he was a candidate for the legislative elections in Corrèze under the banner of the New Popular Front.

A decision which “revolts” his former Prime Minister.

On LCI, Manuel Valls denounced a “deeply immoral and shocking” alliance.

When he was still at the Élysée, it was said of François Hollande that he “shouldn’t say that.” Now, “he shouldn’t do that.” Invited this Saturday, June 15 on LCI, Manuel Valls did not spare the former President of the Republic after the announcement of his candidacy in Corrèze with the label of the New Popular Front. An alliance described as “incomprehensible” by his former Prime Minister.

“It’s a mistake, it shocks me”

If he recognizes that “it’s his freedom”, it was not with great enthusiasm that Manuel Valls reacted to this surprise candidacy. Quite the contrary. “It’s incomprehensible, it’s an aberration, it revolts me in a certain way”, he said on our set. Before explaining. After calling back “respect and affection” that he brings to the former head of state, he has in fact accused François Hollande of “participate in a lie”. Namely, to give the illusion that he is part of a left capable of governing. “Today, in this alliance, the strong party remains La France insoumise. So on the economic, social, budgetary project, it’s tax bludgeoning. On security and immigration issues, it’s nonsense. And the worst of the worst is foreign policy.”listed the former Prime Minister. “If François Hollande knows all this, without thinking it, it is because he is participating in a lie”he concluded, after committing to “pay attention to words” used.

For those who see the New Popular Front as an alliance “deeply immoral and shocking”, the former head of state would therefore have better introduce himself “as a free candidate”. On the LCI set, the one who failed to be elected under the label La République en marche in 2022 ended up expressing his “disappointment” duty “a President of the Republic with values” ally “with those who never stopped criticizing him.”
