Jean-Luc Mélenchon estimated on Tuesday July 5 that the crisis born of the legislative elections, and which could continue through a “blockage” in Parliament, “will be resolved by” legislative elections, which the united left can in his eyes win. To prepare for these new legislative elections, the Insoumis leader proposed to his Nupes partners to launch “a major political initiative”, for example “a major march against the high cost of living” in September, during a conference at the Party’s headquarters. independent worker (POI) in Paris.
The leader of the Insoumis presented a graphic according to which the New Popular Ecological and Social Union (Nupes), which he led, “came very close to victory” in the June legislative elections. Which in his eyes validated his strategy: “When we told you ‘we can win, elect me Prime Minister’, it meant that it was entirely possible. »
Taunting political commentators who claimed he “didn’t believe himself” in victory, the former presidential candidate said: “Mr. Mélenchon believes that we can win the elections, believes that the crisis must to resolve politically, and that it will be resolved by elections. “If LR does not make a majority (with the presidential camp) to lock down Parliament, there will be a dissolution, and we will face the situation with a simple and clear objective, the same as the day when we are going to table a motion of censorship: fire them all as much as they are. »
The Nupes announced on Tuesday that the four groups of deputies that make it up – LFI, PS, EELV, PCF – would table a motion of censure on Wednesday against the government of Elisabeth Borne during her general policy speech before the National Assembly. The Insoumis tribune believes that the unions and associations are not currently in a position to organize a “unifying political initiative”, a “big march” which would give “the start of the new school year”.
“If it’s the Nupes, the political wall will crystallize the capacity for popular organization, and then politics takes over, and the question of power will be asked,” added Jean-Luc Mélenchon. “In this country, the class struggle is experiencing a dizzying accelerator, which is called inflation,” he chanted.
The former group leader at the Palais-Bourbon warned that “Rebellious deputies must be the first to run ahead”, by organizing during the summer “constituency assemblies” and militant “caravans” in working-class neighborhoods. Meanwhile, he will travel to Latin America, starting July 12. He will travel to Mexico, Honduras and Colombia, countries where the radical left is in power, and from where he will bring “lessons”.
