Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bilateral agreements between LFI (the new hegemon) and the various other parties of the left, are the order of the day. The idea is to have a single candidate of the Left in every electoral district.

Yesterday, the Greens signed an agreement in which they get a hundred or so districts. Julien Bayou mentioned that in the discussions, they had cleared up differences on EU issues (i.e. engaged in an exercise of creative ambiguity, because they are miles apart).

Mélenchon and Olivier Faure, head of the PS, shook hands yesterday during the May Day demonstration. This morning, LFI has apparently been in discussion with both the Communist Party (Fabien Roussel of the PC said he had set the question of nuclear energy aside; the PC is for, LFI against) and the PS.
This afternoon, the Nouveau Parti Anticapitaliste (NPA, trotsko-wokist) gets their turn.

So in theory we might get a united left front this evening, but it will probably drag on for a couple more days. Candidacies for the legislative elections need to be deposited in two weeks.
