In Marseille, Emmanuel Macron projects France into a “great ecological nation” to seduce the left electorate

He had promised ” Completely “ his project, taking inspiration from that of his opponents. Emmanuel Macron took a step towards Jean-Luc Mélenchon on Saturday, April 16, during a meeting in Marseille, the electoral city of the Bouches-du-Rhône MP.

To predict the electorate of the leader of La France insoumise (LFI) – who came third in the first round of the presidential elections on April 10 with 21.95% of the vote – but also that of the ecologist Yannick Jadot (4.63%). the head of state of France “great ecological nation”which would be “The first to come out of gas, oil and coal”. The promise of a bright future, in short, like the sun illuminating the grassy esplanade of the Palais du Pharo, with the Old Port looming in the background.

Emmanuel Macron therefore assured that he had heard that “strong message” addressed in the first ballot on 10. “To put the environment first [sa] Campaign “.
