"Disappointed and a little worried"
Certainly, within the majority, all had in mind to possibly join Renaud Muselier in the second round. But a deal from the first round is cringe. Its program should also reflect "leftist values", confided to Europe 1 Emmanuelle Wargon, the Minister of Housing. This is part of Territoires de Progres, a group that brings together the left wing of Macronia around ministers Jean-Yves Le Drian and Olivier Dussopt.
"We are both disappointed and a little worried. There will be losses on the left on the side of the presidential majority and there will be losses on the right on the side of Renaud Muselier", regrets the co-founder of Territoires de PROGRESS, Gilles Savary .
The position of En Commun, another group to the left of the macronie, is firmer.
Its twenty or so elected officials said "strongly condemn the PACA agreement".
"We do not find our children, our voters either"
For his spokesperson, Cécile Rilhac, the political recomposition is now pulling a little too far to the right.

In the press this Tuesday morning, the Minister of Ecological Transition, Barbara Pompili, pleads for a balanced strategy. "Systematic alliances with the right would not be understood by our voters," she warns. At a time when the macronie is trying to destabilize the right, the left wing of the majority has not said its last word.
