Results of Glucksmann and PS/PP in the European elections: the candidate neck and neck with Hayer

Results of Glucksmann and PSPP in the European elections the

Head of the PS/Public Square list, has Raphaël Glucksman managed to prevail against the presidential majority in the results of the European elections?

The Glucksmann wave had a small effect on the polling stations. The head of the PS/Place publique list obtained 13.83% of the votes according to the official results transmitted by the Ministry of the Interior. With this score, the socialist candidate is placed just behind Valerie Hayer, candidate of the presidential majority, who collected 14.60% of the votes. However, they are far behind Jordan Bardella and the RN, which won 31.37% of the votes, and 30 seats.

The socialist left placed a lot of hope in the candidacy and the result of Raphaël Glucksmann. The head of the list wanted to distinguish itself from other left-wing forces, in particular France Insoumise, after the ephemeral union of the Nupes while promising to bring a “new political offer”, breaking with certain ideas of the old PS , “which will dominate the European left for decades to come”. And the candidate managed to unite the formerly divided socialist forces after the agreement with Nupes. Can Raphaël Glucksmann’s result in the European elections revive the left? In any case, he made it a possible option and prevented the duel that the presidential majority and the National Rally wanted to establish for the vote.

The head of the PS and Place publique list also had to battle with certain left-wing forces during the European election campaign. Despite its similarities capable of bringing them together, the socialists, the rebels, the ecologists and the communists left in divided order. And criticism, sometimes virulent, was exchanged between Raphaël Glucksmann and the representatives of La France insoumise. An opposition partly due to the desire of both camps to establish themselves as the leading left-wing force.

Raphaël Glucksmann’s result at the Europeans

Raphaël Glucksmann obtained 13.83% of the votes with his PS-PP list this Sunday June 9 and collected 13 seats. A better result than that obtained five years ago when he was already head of the list of Place publique and the PS in the European elections. At the time, the candidate was narrowly elected with 6.19% of the vote, barely more than the 5% threshold.

Who is Raphaël Glucksmann?

Appointed MEP in 2019, Raphaël Glucksmann wishes to keep his place in the European Parliament for five more years. Aged 44, the journalist and essayist has adopted the hat of a politician. He was also an advisor to Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili between 2009 and 2012. At the time, Raphaël Glucksmann shared the life of the Deputy Minister of the Interior of Ukraine, Eka Zgouladze. Today, he is in a relationship with the journalist Léa Salamé with whom he had a boy.

Engaged in the Euromaidan movement in Ukraine, which led in 2014 to the dismissal of pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych, it is no surprise that Raphaël Glucksmann positioned himself from the start of the conflict against the war in Ukraine in the European Parliament. “It is to prevent the whole of Europe from plunging into war that we must rearm ourselves and arm the Ukrainian resistance, while the prospect of a great American abandonment is becoming clearer. These pseudo-“pacifists” do not work not for peace, but for the defeat of democracies”, said Raphaël Glucksmann on February 20 on X (ex-Twitter). He is also known for his commitment against the persecution of Uyghurs in China.
