I insist on the substance. (…) We have the will together to be a left of transformation”, he continued, recalling that “the entire history of the left is to have made possible things which were presented as impossible”.

But, he underlined by placing the question in the context of a cohabitation with Emmanuel Macron, “no decision concerning the exit of NATO would be ratified by the president, therefore, the question is null and void. “On Europe, finally, the text states that the signatories are “prepared not to respect European rules – disobey for some, derogate temporarily for others – when they are in contradiction with the application” of the program. >> To read also: “Disobedience to the European treaties: for better or for worse?” In total, the Nupes project provides for 250 billion in expenditure for 267 billion in revenue.
