Pierre Laurent and Jean-Luc Mélenchon denounced the “burial”

Translated Wednesday 30 December 2015, by Adrian Jordan

“By the actions of the president and words of a certain Socialist Party member, Manuel Valls, one can see a clear desire to bury the entire left”, pointed out the national secretary of the French Communist Party (PCF), on the Parliamentary Channel, LCP, saying he was “prepared to work with Cécile Duflot to form a left-wing coalition”. The day after the regional elections, Pierre Laurent already called for everyone to “question themselves” in his own camp. “It’s about now presenting ourselves to all those who want to carry on, [...] we do not have the capability of forming a sufficiently strong left with just the Left Front.” For his part, on BFMTV on Friday, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, founder of the Left Front, castigated François Hollande’s conciliation with the right, before asserting that in reality, the president wished to “liquidate the socialist movement and move onto other things, as is the case in Italy, for example”.
