Legislative: Taha Bouhafs, the thorn in the side of La France Insoumise for the elections

-

The new political union on the left (Nupes) had to face its first big storm this week, with the revelation of accusations of sexual assault against Taha Bouhafs, who was to be invested in a constituency in the Rhône, while his candidacy was already controversial. “I learn of the accusations against Taha Bouhafs”. So much for the first written comment from Jean-Luc Mélenchon on Wednesday May 11, moments after the accusations of sexual assault against Taha Bouhafs were made public in the media. The day before, the leader of La France insoumise had also expressed himself on Twitter about the young ex-candidate for the legislative elections, but this time it was to support him following his withdrawal when he was to be invested in the 14th district of the Rhône, under the banner of the New Popular, Ecological and Social Union (Nupes).

According to some media, including Le Parisien, the candidate who came third in the presidential election did not learn until midday on Wednesday May 11 of the testimonies that incriminate Taha Bouhafs within his own party. He would have “fallen out of his chair” according to a testimony collected by our colleagues among the Insoumis. However, the follow-up committee against sexist and sexual violence internal to LFI had been seized on Saturday, May 7 following the testimony of a woman denouncing acts of sexual assault. Who knew? That same day, the deputy of Seine-Saint-Denis, Clémentine Autain, confirmed that even if she was not part of the committee seized, this report against Taha Bouhafs had been addressed to her “personally”. “Upset” by what she had been able to learn from “this woman and others since”, she would have received Taha Bouhafs on Monday May 9 to inform him of the very probable withdrawal of his investiture in the face of the gravity of the facts. assumed. But, according to party officials, the committee “never giving information to the outside to preserve the confidentiality of the complainants”, no other major personality of LFI – and therefore of Nupes – was aware before Wednesday May 11.

Julien Bayou, Alexis Corbière, David Cormand, have thus been forced to backpedal in an emergency since Wednesday afternoon, while highlighting the words of the supposed victims. “Let’s be proud that the alerts are heard and that they have consequences. We owe it to the words of women in the face of men’s deafness”, tweeted MEP EELV. “The denunciations of sexual violence and the words of the victims must be respected”, declared for her part Sandrine Rousseau. 1 / T. Bouhaf has suffered dumps of racism.
2/ Denunciations of sexual violence and the words of the victims must be respected.
3/ Don’t use it to spread more racism. We see you.
That the other pol forces. clean up their ranks. #nupes— Sandrine Rousseau (@sandrousseau) May 11, 2022 Whatever the exact timing of events, accusations of sexual assault that could go as far as rape against a candidate who was destined to be invested by the new union on the left, look like a huge thorn in the side for La France insoumise. While the party had been united behind its young activist for days – sometimes even against the headwinds that appeared within Nupes itself – the disillusion was inevitably great. And the conclusions that will be made by the internal committee at LFI, could hurt even more, while the first round of the legislative elections is looming in four weeks. I learn of the accusations against Taha Bouhafs. Women’s voices must be taken seriously. I am counting on the LFI ad hoc commission to establish the truth. This does not exempt the racists who harassed him.https://t.co/VybjIVggCv— Jean-Luc Mélenchon (@JLMelenchon) May 11, 2022
