If the basis of the Europe Ecology-The Greens activists see a dim view of an alliance with the Socialists – it showed whistling Marisol Touraine Thursday 20 August during the first days of their summer 2015 – although some executives consider an alliance with the PS. Instead, in at least four regions out of thirteen, EELV share the field with all or part of the Left Front.
“Ras-le-bol” s’ protested Jean-Vincent Place. Senator worries alliances with the radical left formation in Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Picardy in PACA, two regions that could delight the National Front. EELV with MP Denis Baupin, he regrets that alliances do “with protest left” rather than “with the reformist left” . Also, he warned, if the activists had to vote for this alliance northerner September 12, he, Senator environmentalist, would draw “all consequences”
The rule: autonomy unless strong FN
The MP Barbara Pompili and fellow co-chair of EELV group in the Assembly, François de Rugy, recalled the choice of autonomy the Green party in the first round, with a particularity “in the regions where the probability that the FN is strong wins the election.” Here discussion must engage with all the left.
The three party heavyweights deplore the “summer fever” that has taken hold of EELV, while activists must validate these alliances in at least four areas: Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Picardy, Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur
Voting will take into account the remarks outraged by Jean-Luc Melenchon in the newspaper Southwest. “The Greens have chosen to make autonomous lists, but in six of the thirteen regions, they unite us. (…) They say one thing and do another “, denigrates the former presidential candidate, calling his troops ” being in any list rather than suffer the annexation “. “In addition, they want to have all the top of the list and count the score for EELV; it is sectarian “, he said.
Jean-Luc Melenchon asks its partners in the Left Front, EELV and New Deal to ” meet in the coming days “, for the next regional elections ” are not a new act lacked the emergence of an alternative to citizen service ecology, solidarity and democracy “.
If there was a time to issue the Left Front ally of environmentalists throughout France regional, reconciliation was overturned in May because “Holland gave them the coup ” who wants to be Minister “” , as the co-founder of the Left Party.
