Macron pleads for unity, Mélenchon warns against

A few hours before the end, at midnight, of a poisoned campaign between macronists and melenchonists, the head of state said on BFMTV to come back “Mark” by what he saw in Ukraine. The oppositions have not ceased since Tuesday June 14 to reproach him for his absence from French soil just before the ballot on Sunday June 19.

“The moment was the right one because it was when we were ready to act as Europeans”he added. “I am convinced that our country, if it knows how to come together, find itself in respect of the differences that there are between each other, can emerge stronger from this crisis”he added, pointing out that“we need a truly European France”.

“It’s good to go, (but) Too bad it’s so late”estimated the ex-EELV presidential candidate Yannick Jadot on franceinfo.

“He was right to do it. (…), but what questions it is the timing”abounded on Cnews the president acting of the National Rally, Jordan Bardella.

Heat wave

Jean-Luc Mélenchon, leader of the united left Nupes (LFI, PS, EELV, PCF), who sees himself as Prime Minister, insisted on the need for Mr. Poutine to show “that there is not a crack in the opposition, that we are all facing the invasion of Ukraine”.

In addition to Ukraine, the heat wave has also invaded the countryside. The leader of LFI attacked at a press conference “climate inaction” of Emmanuel Macron who believes, according to him, “that the market will settle everything”.

Emmanuel Macron reminded him, on the sidelines of a visit to the Vivatech show, that he was planning a “ecological emergency law” for this summer in order to “developing renewable energies” and “big projects”.

“It’s going to groan, but it has to be done”, he insisted. Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne said the text would be tabled in July.

From the constituency she is running for in Calvados, the head of government again castigated a Nupes project in “very negative consequences” on the economy, as well as “lies” by Jean-Luc Mélenchon, while“we need stability” and one “clear majority”.

Because the polls do not guarantee an absolute majority (289 seats) in the presidential camp. Together! would get between 255 and 295 seats, according to the Elabe Institute, 265 and 305 according to Ipsos and 270 to 300 according to Ifop-Fiducial.

The Nupes is credited with 150 to 200 deputies according to Elabe, 140 to 180 according to Ipsos, and 160 to 190 according to Ifop-Fiducial.

Voice transfer

“The situation is not favourable” to Emmanuel Macron, whose coalition Together! gathered 26% in the first round of the legislative elections, while“a third” of his voters had supported him in the legislative elections in 2017, recalls Jean-Daniel Lévy, director general of the Harris Interactive polling institute.

The result of the ballot Sunday, June 19 “depends on campaign dynamics, abstention and vote carryover”explains Bernard Sananès, president of Elabe.

Less than one in two voters had moved in the first round and the trend should be confirmed on Sunday, according to opinion polls.

The Macronist and Melenchonist camps, which will constitute the two main blocs of the future National Assembly, each continue to warn of the risk of an unmanageable hemicycle in the event of the victory of the other.

On the LFI side, we repeat that “chaos is them”. Jean-Luc Mélenchon urged Friday, June 17 to go to the polls to “to slice” because “If you don’t cut through what you want, it will be a mess for months”.

As for the Republicans, they see themselves as referees. “If Emmanuel Macron does not have an absolute majority, then the right will become unavoidable” and his “role will be to” prod the government towards reforms which are rather markers of the right “said MEP Agnès Evren on RFI.

Marine Le Pen wished from her constituency of Pas-de-Calais “to make Emmanuel Macron a minority president” while castigating “an extreme left which is the most sectarian, the most violent”.

She repeated “to fear” abstention and urged his constituents to go vote and “that they help us to defend them”.
