“I would like to continue my mission”: Richard Ferrand would see himself remaining President of the Assembly
While the reshuffle is still pending and Jean Castex is expected to resign this Friday, Richard Ferrand is trying to push his advantage.
“Presiding the National Assembly fascinates me. And if I am convinced of being the most useful person for this responsibility, then, yes, I would like to continue my mission”, launches the President of the National Assembly this morning to Parisian.
“Radicalized left”, “tinkering of circumstance”: Richard Ferrand targets the union of the left
The President of the National Assembly unleashes his blows against the Nupes, the new popular ecological and social union which brings together LFI, the PS, EELV and the PC.
“The radicalized left has spent five years confronting each other. Mr. Roussel does not think like Mr. Mélenchon on nuclear power. Mrs. Hidalgo’s comments on Ukraine and Europe are light years away from those of the Insubordinates. In short, there is, on the one hand, a coherent whole which has proven itself and, on the other hand, a patchwork of circumstances between movements which do not agree on anything “, thus judges Richard Ferrand in the columns of Parisian this morning.
