Who will be the opponent franÃ§ois Fillon and marine Le Pen in the French presidential election, decide now in the Socialist party. On the eve of her supporters held a first debate. Running 7 candidates. Among the favorites, former Prime Minister and ex-Minister of economy.
The first debate of the socialists was in full swing, when 200 thousand people in the North, the lights went out. Gale-force winds, the storm felled trees and covered in snow-covered roads. However, the cold did not affect the hot debate in Paris. It lasted about 2.5 hours, the winner was Arnaud Montebourg. The three entered who was considered an outsider Benoit Amon and Manuel Valls, the former Prime Minister.
For Manuel Valls, the political world is really difficult. He was the only protects the President, although he admits that he made mistakes. He defends the state of emergency in the country, while his opponents propose to strengthen the internal boundaries, staying within the Schengen area.
Former Minister of economy for the desire to protect French business was nicknamed - man Made in France - made in France. In defiance of the Waltz he wants to repeal the law on labour, the proposals of colleagues in the fight against unemployment calls absurd. Benoit Hamon, for example, wants to introduce a basic income for young people - the fixed amount which is paid regardless of whether a person work. The left splits all over, including in matters of foreign policy.
Perhaps the total of all of the candidates promise to unite the left. In recent history has this been done only twice before world war II and Francois Mitterrand. But political analysts say that today the image of the socialists ruined so that to restore the reputation of the spring elections will be extremely difficult.
