Jean-Luc Mélenchon, founder of the leftist France Insumisa (FI) party, expressed himself after the closing of the polls and the first estimates and demanded that Macron should appoint a new prime minister of the left alliance.

Mélenchon said that French voted with conscience, Macron has to call the NFP to form a new government to implement the entire program of the Popular Front, only the popular front because he says that they have been fighting against the social and climatic inaction of the president for more than 7 years.

“Tonight we have a relative majority so I ask those who were rejected three times not to mix their votes with the right ectrema that they did to prevent the emergence of the new popular front,” said Olivier Faure Secretary-General of the France’s Socialist Party and one of the NFP main leaders.

Faure told those who thought that the extreme right was an alternative that would take into account and listen to their despair and anguish and that “we must repair those fractures that have divided our country” and recognized in French society there are huge cracks “The age of contempt is over!”
