La France Insoumise criticized on Sunday afternoon the “old left” who “rejected any union agreement” with LFI in the Senate elections and “prevented the election of a single rebel senator.”
“The rejection of the union around Nupes will have cost the left almost 10 seats,” denounced the LFI in a press release.
“We were rejected from any agreement by the traditional left-wing parties,” says the Mélenchonista party, at a time when the Nupes coalition (LFI, PS, EELV, PCF) is going through a new period of tensions.
Upper chamber stability
“The election of the division of the socialists, environmentalists and communists and the dispersion of the lists cost the members of the Nupes half a dozen seats and helped the progression of the extreme right in the Senate,” where the RN obtained three seats on Sunday, continues La France Insoumise.
The results of the Senate elections on Sunday confirmed the stability of the upper house, dominated by the right.
The leader of the socialist group Patrick Kanner, very critical of Nupes, had sealed an agreement with the communists and the environmentalists in about fifteen departments for the Senate elections, without the LFI.
