The Fête de l’Humanité takes place this weekend from Saturday 11 to Sunday 12 September at La Courneuve in Seine-Saint-Denis. Communist Fabien Roussel, candidate for the Elysee race, came to meet his voters there. He responded live to questions from Leïla Kaddour, presenter of the 13 Hours newspaper.

The Fête de l’Humanité, known for its music concerts and debates, takes place from Saturday September 11 to Sunday September 12 at La Courneuve in Seine-Saint-Denis. Fabien Roussel, Communist candidate for the presidential election in 2022, came to meet those who could be his loyal voters during future elections. In duplex from La Courneuve, he answered, live, questions from Leïla Kaddour, presenter of the 13 Hours newspaper. When the journalist asks him the reason for a PCF candidacy, 15 years after the last, he explains: “We have chosen to present a collective candidacy for this presidential election to bring the anger and the hopes of the working world. I want to be the president who will carry a youth pact. “

During the 2012 and 2017 polls, the Communist Party had indeed lined up behind the candidacy of Jean-Luc Mélenchon. This will not be the case in 2022 and Fabien Roussel wishes to clarify the reason for this choice: “We are living through a social, ecological, democratic and health crisis so strong that we will not be able to get out if we do not leave this oligarchy financial that dominates everything “.
