The “rebellious” deputy François Ruffin again pleaded, on Sunday April 30, for a common list of the left in the European elections of 2024, despite the refusal of Europe Ecologie-Les Verts (EELV) which considers it preferable to aim for a single candidacy in the presidential election of 2027.
“I hope that we will manage to have a common candidacy for the Europeans, which would be the only way to match and exceed the National Rally”he said on BFM TV. “What separates us has become less important. We are talking about disobedience on a number of things, they are talking about derogations ” certain European rules, he said.
The national secretary of EELV, Marine Tondelier, had considered Sunday in an interview with the Sunday newspaper that the left should aim for a joint candidacy for the presidency of 2027 and agree to leave in dispersed order for the European elections. She highlighted the differences with La France insoumise (LFI) on “the relationship with China, Ukraine, European defence”.
François Ruffin is one of the personalities frequently cited to embody a left-wing candidacy for the next presidential election, especially since Jean-Luc Mélenchon seemed to dub him with a tweet : “Francois is ready. Ahead ! »
The deputy of the Somme was once again cautious, emphasizing that a victory would only be built in ” crew “. “The question I ask myself is how do we manage to be strong enough, powerful enough on the left to swing things in our favour. How the anger that is anchored in the country, it leads to hope”did he declare. “It is won as a team, and in the team, there is a captain”he added.
