Legislative 2022: “Mélenchon’s economic program is bankrupt” according to Eric Dupond-Moretti

the essential
Éric Dupond-Moretti is in Toulouse this Wednesday to support the majority candidates in the parliamentary elections. The Keeper of the Seals will be on Thursday in Lot and Aveyron with the Together candidates. He gave an interview to La Dépêche du Midi. The ability to fire red balls on the Nupes program.

Is there concern in the majority after this first round?
Optimism in election matters is demobilizing. But so is pessimism. I would like to remind you that the President was re-elected brilliantly. It is the only one under the Fifth Republic that has been re-elected outside of cohabitation, and we are the only force that can win majorities.
The pension reform project seems to be tensing some voters.
The question is simple: do we want this system to continue so that our children can benefit from a proper pension? Should we continue with a system that will lead to the demolition of a solidarity of which we must be proud? But the word that comes to me to talk about this reform is consultation. The opposite of unconstructive and systematic criticism.
Was he missing a majority leader during this campaign? Elisabeth Borne was criticized for not taking the lead.
It is polemic that has no meaning. There is a collective mobilization. The Prime Minister is invested in his constituency and at the same time heads the government. The timetables are ready.
Jean-Luc Mélenchon campaigns on the slogan “Choose me Prime Minister.” Is that a good strategy?
It’s still extraordinary. You lose the presidential election by becoming number three. By what miracle can he become prime minister? He did not even run in the parliamentary elections. La Nupes is a takeover of the extreme left by the Republican and Democratic left. This did not escape Mrs. Delga. In fact, the LFI wants to devour the entire left wing to tear it to pieces. Mr. Mélenchon’s financial program is bankrupt at the end of the road. Its international program is the Bolivarian axis. He has an admiration for many dictators: Cuban, Venezuelan and Russian. In terms of security, I recall that he was convicted of using violence against the police and a public prosecutor. He believes the police are barbarians and recently that the police are killing. It is a kind of permission given to children to insult and attack the police. It is a project on moral and republican bankruptcy. It is total nihilism and constant criticism.

It’s no better on the side of RN. They shone in the National Assembly only by their absence. When Mr Bardella asks that we remove the automatic penalty reductions, I put it in place. They did not vote for it because they were not there. The same applies to the Penal Code for minors. I also spent hundreds of hours procuring land to set up prisons. There is not a municipality run by RN that has offered us land. They were even against it.

Nupes comes up with strong suggestions on social issues: Smic, pensions, etc. What do you think ?

It’s a one-armed bandit that M.Mélenchon flashes. But when you stay in front for a long time, you come out with empty pockets. How will you both increase wages, reduce working hours, without going in the direction of an inevitable tax increase. It is an expense of 250 billion. annual. On the contrary, I remember the President’s record. France is today the country where foreigners invest the most, whereas Germany has long been ahead of us. Youth unemployment has never been so low, the number of young apprentices never so high. We have inflation of 5%, while it is practically double everywhere in Europe.
In the second round there will be RN-Nupe’s duels. Do you send the two labels back to back?

I spoke on Sunday night. No vote should go to the National Rally. But I distinguish between the LFI and the democratic left wing of the government. In my northern constituency, in Maubeuge, there will be an RN and a diverse left. My vote goes to the diverse left-wing candidate. We can work with the Republican and Democratic left, not with the LFI.
If you only have a relative majority, then are you in favor of a merger with LR?

See, let’s wait until Sunday night before we make these assumptions. The French have the choice between progress, the republic, Europe, a viable project rather than total blockade.
A new indictment has been filed against Damien Abad by a woman: what do you think about this case?

I believe the presumption of innocence is not an anecdote. In a state governed by the rule of law, it is not up to the press, nor political parties or anyone else, to adjudicate cases before they are judged by justice. Let justice do its work if it is seized. Justice does not come in the media, it takes place in the courts.
