“I reject the fate of the five left-wing candidacies when all the other political families are almost reunited behind theirs.” Arnaud Montebourg, presidential candidate, calls for a rally of the left behind “a common project” and one “common candidate”. In a letter published Wednesday, December 8, Arnaud Montebourg even said “ready to offer [sa] candidature”.

The candidate of the “Comeback de la France” estimate that “this gathering has become urgent”, while “the extreme right is at the gates of power”. “If the lefts do not come together, scattered and disparate, they will disappear in the hubbub of their disagreements”, writes Arnaud Montebourg.

“If the lefts as diverse as they are do not unite their voices, they will fade away behind the firepower of the far right.”
