Raphaël Glucksmann's party, Place Publique, and the PS have reached an agreement to constitute their joint list for the European elections, the Socialist Party said in a press release this Saturday.

According to several socialist sources, Place Publique obtains three places out of the first 10, which would give them three elected officials if the list obtains 10%: 9th, 4th and therefore 1st, that of Raphaël Glucksmann.

One of these places should be reserved for outgoing Place Publique MEP Aurore Lalucq.

During the latest negotiations, the small left-wing party created in 2018 managed to impose a third eligible candidate and a total of 20 running mates out of the 81 that will be on the list in total, a socialist elected official told AFP.

“This agreement allows the establishment of an ordered list, combining experience and renewal, diversity of backgrounds and representation of all territories

,” indicated the PS in its press release while several voices were raised to criticize the lack of diversity and representatives of the working classes in an eligible position.

A 3rd place targeted behind the RN and Renaissance

Resolutely pro-European, the son of the philosopher André Glucksmann was the guest on Saturday evening on 8 p.m. on TF1, the day of the second anniversary of the Russian invasion in Ukraine.

“We let a dictator (...) walk all over us, treat our nations like mops, attack our hospitals with his hackers

,” he insisted.
