The rebellious Jean-Luc Mélenchon announced this week that he would not stand for re-election in Marseille in the legislative elections, in the hope of being appointed Prime Minister if the Nupes became a majority in the Assembly. On Europe 1, LFI deputy Alexis Corbière talks about the future of his great friend in the event of failure.
It is a daring risk that Jean-Luc Mélenchon took. By declaring Thursday evening not to represent himself for the deputation in Marseille, leaving his place to Manuel Bompard, the former candidate of the Insoumis in the presidential election can find himself without any mandate. He is counting on President Emmanuel Macron’s “democratic” reflex to be appointed Prime Minister, if Nupes becomes a majority in the National Assembly, on the evening of the second round of the legislative elections. If this was not the case, Alexis Corbière, LFI deputy for Seine-Saint-Denis who is representing himself, mentioned the projects of the leader of the Insoumis.
