Presidential 2022: The votes in Lourdios-Ichère invalidated after the filmed abstention of Jean Lassalle

7:45 am: “A coalition is not a submission”

First Secretary of the Socialist Party Olivier Faure justifies this morning in the pages of Figaro, his desire to rally on the left with La France insoumise in view of the legislative elections.

For him, “the lefts are not irreconcilable”, even if “disagreements will remain.

A coalition is not a submission and everyone will retain their identity,” he says.

He believes that for the legislative elections, “you need a single candidate from the left in the hundred or so constituencies where the far right can win”.

7:40 a.m .: Jean-Luc Mélenchon defends his desire to presidentialize the legislative elections

In an interview to be published today in L'Humanité, the LFI chief responds to those who criticize his approach that their reproach is valid if the president is elected "fairly with a real choice".

“But this is the third time that we have made the coup in the country of forced voting” against the far right, he believes.

According to him, presidentializing the legislative elections means “elevating an election considered as an administrative formality to the rank of an issue at the level of the presidential election.

It's already a bit of the Sixth Republic in the V”.

On the other hand, Jean-Luc Mélenchon is betting that there will be "no bonus for the president so badly elected".

7:30 am: "I was attacked because I am a journalist"

A journalist from France Bleu Creuse revealed on Twitter that she had filed a complaint "for violence with the use of a weapon" after being attacked while covering election night on Sunday.

Today I filed a complaint.

For violence with the use of a weapon.

I was attacked because I am a #journalist.

"Just" because I am a journalist.

In France.

For my job.

By covering #Elections2022.

How is that still possible?
