Lula, Rousseff and PT-Brazil back Melenchon’s candidacy in France

“We wish comrade Jean-Luc Melenchon and France Insoumise success in this week’s election days, which are part of the struggle for peace, the peoples’ self-determination, justice and equal rights,” Lula, Rousseff and PT leader Gleisi Hoffmann said in a letter.

The signatories pointed out that they will not forget Melenchon’s staunch position “in the face of the coup d’état (judicial parliamentary coup in 2016) against President Dilma and the unjust and illegal conviction of President Lula.”

Media assure that Melenchon is gaining momentum in the race towards the April 10 election, to which nearly 49 million French voters are summoned, but the race is still polarized between President Emmanuel Macron and the ultra-right representative Marine Le Pen.

At 70 years of age, Melenchon intends to seduce with social initiatives the progressive forces of society, the irresolute and disenchanted with the French political class, in a call to the polls at which up to 30 percent of abstentions is predicted.
