“I want to put ecology at heart power” and “build a French ecology team that will win the presidential election, said Yannick Jadot to the news 20 hours of TF1. I want to serve [la France] because in the face of climate change, (…) in the face of social injustices, we can no longer procrastinate. “
Media but divisive on the left, Yannick Jadot in particular attracted the virulent criticism of France rebellious (LFI). Its ecology is not “in the service of the popular classes“, thus estimated Manon Aubry, in June 2019, a few weeks after the European elections where Yannick Jadot and his EELV list collected 13.47%, a historic result. Last spring, he worked for a possible single candidate on the left for 2022 but faced reluctance, especially at LFI.
“When we see to what extent climate change is the great challenge of our society (…) it is around this project that I want to bring together all those on the left who see clearly that the question of ecology is central. We will see who wants to come “, he explained on TF1.
