In a statement, the organization led by former presidential candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who finished third in the first round of the April 10 elections, considered the pact materialized yesterday an important step in the objective of seeking the maximum number of deputies possible, in order to stop the policies of re-elected President Emmanuel Macron.

We want to prevent Macron from continuing his unjust and brutal policies, as well as to defeat the extreme right, he stressed.

After the president’s victory in the April 24 ballot against the far-right Marine Le Pen, the June 12 and 19 legislative elections have become the priority of French political forces.

The fact that Mélenchon won more than seven million votes and was only one point behind Le Pen in the race for the second round, stimulated sectors of the left to project an alliance for the parliamentary elections, which could be joined in the next hours or days by the Socialist Party and the Communist Party.

LFI urged the population to obtain a majority of progressive seats in the National Assembly, with a view to an eventual appointment of Mélenchon as Prime Minister, a scenario ruled out by the ruling party.
