Gregor Gysi on the results of the 2nd round of the National Assembly elections
The Left in France will be stronger in the new National Assembly as in the previous one. This is a very good and encouraging result. Unfortunately, the architecture of the French electoral system is preventing the left from an even better result.
There is hope, that our member parties Parti de Gauche (PdG) and the French Communist Party (PCF) will open up a shared path to enable a common and therefore stronger parliamentary fraction formed by France Insoumise (FI) and the PCF.
Today I have send together with the chairs of DIE LINKE a letter of congratulation to Jean-Luc Mélenchon and Pierre Laurent.
