Haro on the green ! Faced with the emergence of lists of Europe Ecology-The Greens (EELV) in the first round of municipal elections, their opponents will play the union to prevent the party from winning several large cities on the 28th of June, the date of the second round.
Enemies on the national scene, The Republic in motion (LRM) and The Republicans (LR) have forged numerous alliances to block the road to the left in general and ecologists in particular. “We are witnessing a mutation of the cleavage left-right around a new cleavage with LRM and LR, on one side, and the other, the left, with the environmentalists in the head “, analysis the deputy director general of the polling institute IFOP, Frédéric Dabi.
