56 candidates for French parliament endorse DiEM25’s principles

Our French members have taken a different route to bring DiEM25 into the electoral debate and push for a progressive alliance at the ballot: they gave a variety of candidates running in the upcoming parliamentary elections on June 11 and 18 the chance to embrace our movement’s aims.

As electoral contests take place across the Union, DiEM25 members everywhere have been working hard to push our movement’s Progressive Agenda. In some cases, our membership has agreed to fully support a political party like Zagreb is Ours! in Croatia. In the UK, DiEMers voted to endorse a broad list of candidates for the upcoming parliamentary elections. And our Coordinating Collective, together with the Validating Council, is working on a press release including their recommendations of progressive forces at the Italian municipal elections next week.

Now in France, DiEM25’s French Provisional National Committee (PNC) developed a Charter and called for progressive candidates in the upcoming parliamentary elections to sign it. Despite the short time available, 55 candidates had done so by June 10th.

 

The Charter made by our French PNC calls for:

 

  • transparency at all levels; participative democracy; referenda; independence of agencies; reinforcement of liberty and independence of press; protection of whistleblowers; promotion of diversity and gender equality in all institutions
  • openness; welcome and integration of refugees and migrants through a common migration politics and the respect of the rights of refugees and right to asylum; their free movement throughout the EU and sharing of efforts across countries
  • a radical refounding of economic and monetary European policies; fundamental reform of the economic governance of the EU and the Eurozone (European New Deal); regulation of finance; fiscal harmonisation; organisation of economic convergence; fight against tax evasion and against tax havens; restructuring and mutualisation of public debts
  • development of employment; fight against poverty; hamonisation of social protection; reduction of inequalities; everybody’s access to goods and essential services (food; accommodation; transport; energy; education; health; livable environment…) and a paid job in their country and region of origin; sharing the returns of capital and creation of a basic dividend
  • ecological transition; sustainable development and protection of the material and immaterial common goods; energy sovereignty while re-orienting budget policy and investments to environmental technologies; tech sovereignty and the management of the digital transition
  • putting in place a democratic process to create a new constitution for France and for Europe

Our message to political actors and democrats throughout the Union remains the same: we welcome everyone to join our movement whose objective is to put the ‘demos’ back into our democracy – something that we can only achieve at home if Europe is democratised as a whole!
