The New Popular Union in 1st constituency, Ardeche has appointed Herve Saulignac as deputy. He is subject to criticism from the Insoumis. The Europe Ecologie Les Verts d'Ardeche party, which is also a member of the group, wanted to clarify their position on the legislative elections (June 12, 19).
"EELV has always respected agreements signed. EELV does not, therefore, present candidates in the Ardeche legislative elections", states the party in a press statement. Herve Saulignac says that the program he presented "shows that it conforms to the programmatic agreement with Nupes". He states that he doesn't formally endorse the Nupes banner, and that he doesn't want to campaign alongside the other signatory left forces. This does not change anything. He is our candidate."
