Jean-Luc Mélenchon in anger - SIPA

Jean-Luc Mélenchon has lost none of his verve. In an interview in vitriol for the Journal du Dimanche , the LFI leader severely tackles Emmanuel Macron on his crisis management. A president "completely overwhelmed by the situation" and whose "failure" of "politics" is "guaranteed". And it is not the reshuffle that will appease Jean-Luc Mélenchon, on the contrary. The appointments of Jean Castex and Roselyne Bachelot (accused by the leader of the rebels of having dug into the public hospital in the past), are perceived either as a sign of contempt, or as an obstinacy "typical of people hallucinated by their ideology who admit no contradiction, even when this ideology shatters reality. "

Less obvious to mention, the municipal ones, where LFI was far from winning the votes. Jean-Luc Mélenchon does not shirk and assumes "a failure" by having "bet with the citizen lists on a popular implication which did not take place. "But for him, these municipal, at the rate of abstention having exploded all records, mark all the same" a political split of society "with" a cold insurrection of the absent "(the abstainers).

2022 target, but how?

And there is no question of saying that LFI was useless. For Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the presence of his party was essential in the victory of the left, especially in "Grenoble, Lyon and Marseille", three of the most significant breakthroughs of the Greens. “People know this. Without the rebels, nothing was possible facing the right in the municipal elections. "

The Greens, let's talk about it. Can we imagine an LFI-EELV alliance for the presidential election of 2022? Jean-Luc Mélenchon sets the handbrake: “We have to distinguish the elections. In regional, as in municipal, our differences are reduced to the limited fields of competence of these communities. It is different with the presidential, which involves all aspects of life in the country. »A way to already place yourself as a candidate for 2022? Patience. “I have a decision to make and I will make it when the time comes. "
