For Jean-Luc Mélenchon, “Mr. Macron would do well to ask himself if he is certain that he will be in the second round”
The Macron-Le Pen duel will not take place, according to Jean-Luc Mélenchon. “I have a very serious chance of getting there. [au second tour]. Mr. Macron would do well to ask himself if he is certain that he will be there”said the candidate of La France insoumise this morning on Sud Radio.
“Look at the curves! »insisted Mr. Mélenchon, referring to the dynamics of the far-right candidate Marine Le Pen (National Rally) and to his own, while the outgoing president seems to be losing points over the polls, even if he remains in head.
And what does he say to voters who think they are abstaining? “Have the dignity of your country, of your democracy. Vote whoever you want but do it, it’s your duty. But it’s also your right, if you don’t get involved in politics, it’s others who decide for you, don’t believe it! »replied Mr. Mélenchon.
Five days before the first round, Mr. Mélenchon is holding the last major meeting of his presidential campaign tonight by being “present” in eleven other cities thanks to holograms. The “rebellious” candidate completes, at the Grand Palais in Lille, his marathon of weekly meetings started in January, which each time brought together thousands of people.
This time, he intends to reach even more voters by deploying, as in 2017, his “holograms” in eleven cities. Thus, while he speaks in flesh and blood in the northern capital, his image will be projected in three dimensions on stages in Le Havre, Vannes, Poitiers, Pau, Narbonne, Albertville, Montluçon, Besançon, Metz, Trappes and Nice .
“We have targeted a territorial network, there will be Jean-Luc Mélenchon or one of his holograms less than 250 kilometers from each Frenchman”welcomes the deputy Bastien Lachaud, organizer of the meetings. “It’s a technological feat that requires weeks of preparation”he adds, promising even better quality holograms than in 2017.
