‘The decision to bring forward the elections was a suicide gamble for Emmanuel Macron’

The political scientist and researcher from the Paris Institute of Political Sciences believes that the French president wanted to avoid the unification of the entire left with the early elections. He also believes that Kylian Mbappé’s call to vote is an example of the great mobilization of the French.

Interviewed in the news program ‘Ganbara’ on Radio Euskadi, political scientist and researcher from the Paris Institute of Political Sciences, Gaspard Estrada, assured that the decision to bring forward the parliamentary elections was a “risky” gamble on Emmanuel’s part. Macron. Moreover, he describes it as “suicidal” for the French president. Estrada added that with this decision, given the small margin that existed, Macron intended to “avoid” the union of the entire left and “thus attract his electorate,” he said, “exactly the opposite of what was happening has happened’. “Macron is the main victim,” he declared.

“The French have understood that the future of the country and of all of Europe is at stake,” Estrada said, recalling that polls predict a “significant increase” in participation. In this context, he has drawn up the manifesto against the far right that some 180 French athletes have signed or the call to vote from several footballers, such as Kylian Mbappé, for example.
