“As soon as there is a group, without any possible discussion the opposition will be called nupes”, he speculated in front of La France’s headquarters in Paris.

He justified the proposition: “No one had seen this situation happen”. He does not want, he said, “to give the impression that we are exaggerating the illusion” “by our own scattering”.
