Socialist David Habib returns to campaign in Béarn, with the support of Carole Delga This Saturday, May 14, outgoing Socialist Party deputy David Habib is launching his campaign for his re-election in the third constituency of Pyrénées-Atlantiques. To support her, the socialist president of the Occitanie region, Carole Delga, took the time for a day away from the candidates she dubbed in her vast Occitanie region. So many “dissident socialists”, therefore on the sidelines of the Nupes national agreement, exactly like David Habib elected to the National Assembly since 2002 in a territory where he took over from the then mayor of Pau, André Labarrere. “It’s going to be fine,” assures the World David Habib, who already wants to be in the post-election period. The candidate is pumped up: “I have always been elected and re-elected for the work done. No, the challenge today and Saturday with this meeting [dans la commune de] Mont is how to organize a social democratic left in France. Carole Delga made courageous choices in Occitania, she symbolizes an open social democracy, with fundamental values such as Europe, secularism, solidarity which still have their place in France. “People thank me for resting my candidacy despite pressure from above,” continues the deputy in a new reference to the third constituency and Béarn, before a new nod to his guest, Carole Delga: “ Almost everywhere, we are fed up with orders coming from Paris who would like to decide everything for us. In our border regions, we are Europeans and I am as much European as I am from Bearn. David Habib also mentions a few past and future local issues, such as his amendment to the Hulot law allowing hydrocarbon extractions to continue in Lacq and Vic-Bilh (a thousand direct jobs at stake), avian flu, medical desertification and public services. “In this rural and industrial territory with Lacq, the feeling of marginalization, precariousness or the cookie-cutter formulas of Emmanuel Macron struck. And here in Mourenx and surroundings, it was Marine Le Pen who came out on top in the second round, ”he notes. Michel Garicoïx (Bayonne, correspondent)
