Nouveau front Populaire Alliance Program

The Nouveau Front Populaire presented its alliance program in Paris, outlining key measures for a potential left-wing government. Key proposals include:

  • Increasing the minimum wage to €1,600 net and a 10% raise for public sector employees.
  • Repealing pension, unemployment insurance reforms, and immigration law.
  • Implementing price controls on essential goods.
  • Supporting Ukraine’s sovereignty and providing military aid.
  • Environmental measures like halting major highway projects and large water basins.
  • Improving public services, including healthcare, education, and social housing.
  • Restoring community policing and banning certain police weapons.
  • Reforming the Common Agricultural Policy and opposing EU austerity measures.
  • Ensuring complete pedagogical freedom in schools and providing free school meals and supplies.
  • Protecting local retailers in New Caledonia and stopping the immediate electoral body reform.
  • Initiating major legislative reforms within the first 100 days to address social, health, education, energy, and climate issues.
  • Transitioning to the 6th Republic with proportional representation and strengthening parliamentary power.

The program aims to end the perceived harshness of Macron’s presidency and improve the social conditions of the French people.
