Several left-wing parties have joined forces with rebellious France, in view of the legislative elections which take place on June 12 and 19, 2022. An alliance which aims to impose cohabitation on the government of Emmanuel Macron.

In recent days, a new political union, the Nudes, was born after long periods of discussion between the various French left-wing parties. Thereby, Europe Ecology-The Greensthe Socialist Partythe French Communist Party as well as France rebellious have joined forces for legislative electionsthem June 12 and 19, 2022, in order to obtain a majority and impose cohabitation.

This “Nupes”, which means New People’s Ecological and Social Unionintends to win a maximum of constituencies and impose the appointment of Jean-Luc Mélenchon as Prime Minister. La Nupes will invest this Saturday 577 candidates, one in each constituency. However, this union is not a political party, and everyone can remain independent if they wish or join a parliamentary coalition in the National Assembly.

La Nupes is made up of La France insoumise, which is at the origin with its 22% of the vote in the presidential election. In fact, LFI reserved 330 of the 577 nominations for the legislative elections, while EELV will be able to field candidates in 100 constituencies. The PS obtains 70 constituencies in this agreement and the PCF 50.

Regarding program worn by Nupes, it is strongly inspired by that of L’Avenir en commun, thought up by the Union Populaire and Jean-Luc Mélenchon. Some compromises had to be made to suit the other parties, especially concerning Europe. We thus find in the common program retirement at 60, price freezes, the Sixth Republic and ecological planning.

After the Greek letter “phi” of insubordinate France, Nupes reiterated with this new sign, the “nu”, thirteenth letter of the Greek alphabet, which corresponds to the victoire since the letter is written like a “V”. The new logo is red, green, mauve and pink, all the colors of the parties that have joined the alliance, presented this Saturday during the union’s first convention.
