The outcome of the”third round” of the presidential elections on 19 June has suddenly become very exciting. The New Popular, Ecological and Social Union (NUPES), the electoral coalition led by Jean Luc Mélenchon, could be the largest opposition group in Parliament. Mélanchon narrowly missed being in the second round of the presidential elections. Now, NUPES is neck and neck in the polls with Macron’s coalition. The election of NUPES deputies who break with neoliberalism offers hope and gives those on the left confidence to renew the fight for social, economic and climate justice.
