The New Popular Ecological and Social Union (NUPES), the coalition led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon (extreme populist left), was founded last April and includes all the leftist parties, the PS, the PCF, the EEL (ecologists ), and a dozen small groups of the extreme anti-capitalist left.
In the outstanding National Assembly, this rainbow of parties and groups sumban, in total, 72 representatives.
Created the NUPES, the coalition can obtain between 179 and 225 deputies. Like the PCF, the PS remains sunk and lost, in the melenchonista galaxy.
If that coalition were to win today, Macron would be forced to cohabit with his main political enemies. Estimates only announce a great triumph, as the second parliamentary force.
It is already a lot and exceptional.
Of difficult internal 'governance'. Mélenchon will be able to count on the dominant majority of La France Insumisa, his own party, of the populist extreme left
