The French left, “may become the most stupid of the world,” said Sunday night the Prime minister Manuel Valls about the divisions in his camp, he was invited out of the “sandbox” and “playground”.
Interviewed by France 24 and RFI from the Ivory Coast where he arrived on Sunday in the framework of a tour in West Africa, Mr. Valls has launched a new call to the gathering in order to avoid the elimination of the left in the first round of the presidential election in 2017.
When he argues that the appeal has already found the door closed in Emmanuel Macron or Arnaud Montebourg, the Prime minister said: “Because that’s what it is, the old policy !”
“That can bring all these personalities ? There was this reaction, as the said (the boss of the PS Jean-Christophe Cambadélis, quite correctly, that we would be left the more stupid of the world”,-he said.
The more stupid of the world, the French left, “may become. It is not at the height of its responsibilities”, has accused Mr Valls.
The Prime minister has again signed a sentence ambiguous as to his possible presidential ambitions in 2017: “I want to be at the height of the responsibility of the moment (…) and make it so that the left can tomorrow take it away. And me, I will contribute, one way… or another”.
“we need to act with responsibility. We are not in a school playground, not in a sandbox,” he further stated.
