Legislative 2022: Jean-Luc Mélenchon does not represent himself in Marseille

Exit the Hemicycle, Jean-Luc Mélenchon is now targeting Matignon. The leader of France Insoumise (LFI) announced on Thursday that he would not stand for a new term as deputy.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon will therefore not be a candidate again in his constituency of Bouches-du-Rhône. During a “popular aperitif” of the New Popular Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) in Marseille, he announced the investiture of his campaign director, MEP Manuel Bompard.

During his meeting, the third man in the presidential election put an end to the suspense declaring: “So sir, why won’t you be a legislative candidate? I am asked. Because it is Bompard who will be, he is one of the most eminent figures of the new generation, I entrust him to you, he must be elected.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon invests Manuel Bompard

Elected MEP for France Insoumise in 2019, Manuel Bompard was national secretary of the Left Party before becoming director of Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s presidential campaign in 2017 and again in 2022. If elected, he will leave the European Parliament in favor of the Palais Bourbon.

The objective of Jean-Luc Mélenchon is clear, he wishes to become the new tenant of Matignon. “We will win and I will be prime minister,” he said.
