Invited to France 2, Anne Hidalgo said that she will call “in any case to block the far right” in the second round of the presidential election. According to the polls, the socialist candidate fluctuates between 2% and 3% of voting intentions.

Socialist candidate Anne Hidalgo will call “in any case to block the far right” in the second round of the presidential election, she said Thursday. “I will call anyway to block the far right, it’s my compass, and I will do it, but we are not yet at the evening of the first round”, said on France 2 the candidate who until there kicked into touch when the question of his vote in the event of a second round Emmanuel Macron / Marine Le Pen was put to him.

Between 2% and 3% of voting intentions

Three days before the first round, the candidate, credited with 2 to 3% of the voting intentions, again attacked Emmanuel Macron, given the lead in the polls (27%), and the candidate LFI Jean-Luc Mélenchon, third at some 15% after a comeback. “For these French women and men who come from the left, who still feel close to these ideas of generosity, solidarity, fraternity, Emmanuel Macron is no longer an option” because “he is on the right”, insisted Anne Hidalgo, accusing him of having “fractured” the left over the past five years.

As for Jean-Luc Mélenchon, she warned voters that they were being “brainwashed by people who say that it is the useful vote that will determine Sunday’s result”, and called on them to “vote for (their) beliefs”. Faced with an LFI candidate who carries the ideas “of the far left”, she posed as a candidate for a “republican, social, social-democratic, secular and European left”.
