The new Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne is “among the harshest figures of social abuse” in Macronie, denounced Monday Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who hopes to be appointed to Matignon if the New Union of the Left (Nupes) wins the legislative elections. of June.

“Her appointment begins from the first moments with an attempt at deception, Ms. Borne would be a leftist woman”, but “we do not grant her this label”, said Mr. Mélenchon in a statement to the press.

He cited several reforms carried out by the former Minister of Labour, such as “opening up rail competition”. He said he held her “personally responsible for a million unemployed people having their benefits cut” and for “the reduction of workers’ rights”, and stressed that she had “spoken for retirement at 65”.

“As far as ecology is concerned, we won’t make such a long list, but it is ecology that postponed entry into the energy mix for 10 years, therefore the end of nuclear power, and postponed the end of the single use of plastic objects”, argued Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

Elisabeth Borne, in her eyes, “will embody the continuity of the policy of the President of the Republic and of the previous Prime Ministers, so it is in a way a new season of social and ecological mistreatment which is beginning”.

He hammered that “a third round” will take place: “The legislative election of June 12 and 19 will have to decide for good, there is the possibility for the French to dismiss Ms. Borne and make another choice, the one I ’embodies,’ said the MP for Bouches-du-Rhône.
