One more step for the anti-Napes left, where we find François Hollande and Bernard Cazeneuve or Anne Hidalgo and Carole Delga. But despite their fierce opposition to the Stub, not all agree on the future to give to the left.
The Convention is the name of the movement that Bernard Cazeneuve officially launches this Saturday in Créteil. In the presence of François Hollande, the former Prime Minister wants to federate the anti-Napes left. But the Union is not so simple. François Hollande and Bernard Cazeneuve or Anne Hidalgo and Carole Delga, all fierce opponents of the Nupes, have difficulty agreeing. On both sides, the problem is the method.
"Breathe new life into the party"
The former want to overtake the Socialist Party with the creation of a new social democratic party, in the hope of attracting those disappointed by Macronism and Melenchonism. The others hope to operate from within and get the PS out of the Napes, as explained by First Deputy Secretary Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol. "We have chosen to remain in the Socialist Party, simply because we are socialists. I respect everyone's choices, Bernard Cazeneuve is a friend in addition. But I want to stay in the Socialist Party and I think we also need to breathe new life into the party," he said.

A little competition is taking place between the different initiatives on the left. Last week, Carole Delga organized a rally of the Refoundation motion, a way to "shed light on it first," analyzes a socialist.
The only thing they have in common: they all want to beat Olivier Faure, the current leader of the Socialists and supporter of the Ughs.
