- France Agreement between the French Socialist Party and the far-left party of Malenchon
former French socialist president francois holland criticized the Left coalition on Monday Jean-Luc MlenchonIn which his party has agreed to join, like ecologists and communists, because its program is not credible and is unbalanced in favor of the most radical.
“I am not against the Union, I am against an agreement that, as it is done, (…) does not even allow victory and that is also going to permanently unbalance the left,” he told Station France. Said in an interview with. Difference.
Hollande said in any case that he was not going to leave the Socialist Party (PS) as his prime minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, because of his disagreement with the so-called New Popular Ecological and Social Union (NUES).
