In a statement, the PRCF calls the working class to abstain from voting on April 24th in order to de-legitimize the political power of the future president as much as possible.
The PRCF points out that a part of the left, including the once dominant “Socialist Party” (PS), the “Greens” and the Communist Party of France (PCF), pay the price of their strategic alignment with the EU with “all its disastrous consequences for peace, standard of living, productive employment”.
“In particular – the statement reads – after more than 45 years of Eurocommunism and the disastrous euro-mutation of PCF, which favoured the slow agony of the great Communist Party of Thorez and Duclos, Fabien Roussel (the PCF candidate), who finidhed behind Jean Lassalle, obtained a score lower in percentage and in votes than the ones of Robert Hue in 2002 and of Marie-George Buffet in 2007”.
The PRCF also criticizes leftist candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon for spreading illusions about the polibility of a pro-people change within the EU, as well as for trying to make the voters believe that he could “carry projects against neoliberalism within the IMF”.
The Pole for Communist Revival, as well as its youth wing, underline that the solution for the workers, for the people in general, will not come from an electoral masquerade where the choice is between “the plague and the cholera”, but from the class war against the established Euro-Atlantic capitalist order. That is why, the PRCF and the JRCF will continue “to fight with all their strength to rebuild a truly Communist Party in favour of the Red and Tri-coloured Alternative” which is “the only credible alternative that the workers of France urgently need to reopen the road to socialism and power for the working people”.
