With the first round of the presidential election on Sunday, it was time for the last meeting of the candidates. Valérie Pécresse in Lyon and Éric Zemmour in Paris, Marine Le Pen in Perpignan and Philippe Poutou in Toulouse. In the viewfinder of the anti-capitalist candidate, the outgoing president, according to him cantor of inequalities and individualism.
In Toulouse, Philippe Poutou takes advantage of a last meeting to tackle Emmanuel Macron once again. A few days before the first round of the presidential election, the anti-capitalist candidate reconsiders his vision of the behavior of the outgoing president.
“Macron’s arrogance is not a personal trait. It’s true that Macron is super arrogant. He’s super unpleasant,” he said on Thursday evening.
“What they want is immediate profit”
“Macron is the arrogance of a power and it is the arrogance of a social class. It is the arrogance of this whole class which possesses, which enriches itself, which does not care that can happen in the whole of society”, explains the candidate of the NPA. “These are people who enrich themselves indecently, regardless of the consequences of their own enrichment. The consequences of the logic of the system do not matter. What they want is immediate profit, it is the immediate fortune is to line one’s pockets.”
Philippe Poutou regrets that such a vision implies more unemployment and precariousness for people with the lowest wages. For him, it is above all about class warfare. “It’s that they’re waging a war there, a war against us for the appropriation of wealth. But they can’t just do that. It’s absolutely also necessary to coat all that with a whole theory, with a whole explanation. that there is no choice. And that in fact, it is for the good of society, it is for the good of everyone”, he concluded.
In the latest OpinionWay polls, the anti-capitalist candidate is credited with 1% of voting intentions. To decide the future president, the French are called to the polls this Sunday.
