EELV PRIMARY: EVA JOLY VOTERA JADOT
“The best-placed candidate is Yannick Jadot,” said former presidential candidate Eva Joly on Monday, September 20, on franceinfo, the day after the first round of the environmentalist primary which qualified Yannick Jadot and Sandrine Rousseau for the second round.
“I will vote Yannick Jadot”, explained the lawyer, who supported the mayor of Grenoble Eric Piolle in the first round. “I know Yannick well. I have known him for 10 years, we worked together in the (European) Parliament and I can attest to all his qualities, especially as a negotiator.”
“I would have liked to be able to do otherwise, but for me the emergency is ecological”, she added, affirming to have for priority “that the ecology wins”. “Yannick Jadot must hear that it is in a pocket handkerchief. He must adapt to what environmentalists want, that is to say, he radicalizes his positions a little.”
