Faure reaffirms having won, “irresponsible” according to Mayer-Rossignol

A press release from the PS had proclaimed the victory of Olivier Faure on Friday morning with 50.83% of the votes of the members, but the result was disputed by the mayor of Rouen, Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol.

The first secretary of the outgoing Socialist Party Olivier Faure reaffirms Saturday in the JDD having been re-elected in the activists’ vote, “an irresponsible outing“according to his opponent Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol, while the commission to check the results was still in progress. “The result is crisp and clear. Voting time is over“, proclaims Olivier Faure, who adds: “I am grateful to the socialists for having confirmed me in the most beautiful of functions, that of leading and animating the party of social and ecological justice.“.

A press release from the PS had proclaimed Friday morning the victory of the outgoing Olivier Faure, with 50.83% of the votes of the members, but the result was disputed by the mayor of Rouen, who invokes numerous incidents capable of distorting the result. The party has since been plunged into crisis, with each side claiming victory by castigating opposing cheating.

A commission of verification was therefore convened, Saturday since 1:00 p.m., so that the two parties agree on the figures for the Congress of Marseilles, from January 27 to 29. It was still in progress at nearly 10:00 p.m. “No irregularity is tolerable, but some fabricate doubt and create suspicion to taint the result“criticizes Olivier Faure. Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol reacted on Twitter by castigating a “irresponsible exit», «while our party offers a distressing spectacle, while the verification commission is hard at work“.

I call once again for appeasement, transparency, respect for democracy and activists“, he added. For Olivier Faure, his left-wing rally line with Nupes, tied in May with LFI, EELV and the PCF, is in the majority: “Everyone must admit that a line has emerged and that there is therefore no question of leaving the gathering of the left and environmentalists. A curled up PS, a PS that only speaks to the PS, it’s a dead end“.

He promises that “Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol will be associated with the strategic orientations, in particular for the European ones, since it is on this subject that he has from the beginning expressed his greatest concerns.“.
