This Sunday evening, Jean-Luc Mélenchon had publicly declared that the coalition of left Nupes was arriving “on your mind” in the first round of the French legislative elections and that she would be “present in more than 500 constituencies in the second round”.
Finally, according to the final results communicated later by the Minister of the Interior, Emmanuel Macron’s coalition won against the left alliance by some 21,000 votes. A verdict that the Nupes contests.
On the side of AFP, which did the count, the left coalition would finally rise in 357 constituencies. Far from the 500 constituencies put forward by the leader of La France insoumise.
During a remote meeting with nearly 250 candidates from the presidential camp, Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne did not fail to tackle the behavior of Jean-Luc Mélenchon. “He lies about the results of his camp by inflating the numbers to make the headlines at 8 p.m.”, she said, according to comments relayed by Le Figaro. Adding: “As of yesterday, Jean-Luc Mélenchon once again showed his worst faults: when he is not in the lead, he blames the numbers”. “When you lie to the French to this extent, you don’t respect them. When you’re ready for all the untruths and all the compromises to reach power, you can’t let it go”.
Elisabeth Borne, who indicates that “when Jean-Luc Mélenchon claims to want to be Prime Minister, he is above all the first liar”also warned his partners against the lies of the leader of La France insoumise on the program of the candidates of the macronie. “He insinuates everywhere that we would like to increase VAT. But our program is clear: not one more tax. It’s ironic coming from someone who wants to create 30 new taxes and 35 new bans”, she said. Before concluding: “He lies so much that he comes to contradict himself, able to explain at the same time that the police kill and that he is not ‘anti-cop'”.
