The subjects of disagreement

On NATO, LFI wants an exit from the integrated command of NATO and the Alliance itself “in stages” while the PCF wants the “dissolution” of NATO. The PS is in favor of keeping France in NATO and supports with EELV “the intensification of arms deliveries to Ukraine and the establishment of a total and immediate embargo on Russian imports of oil, coal, nuclear fuel and gas”.

On nuclear power, the PCF does not share the objective of 100% renewables and the abandonment of EPR projects.

On hunting, the PS and the PCF do not support the proposals on the subject. Among these measures, the text mentions the establishment of days without hunting on weekends, public holidays and during school holidays.

On agriculture, the PS shares the objective in 2050 of converting 100% of the useful agricultural area to agroecology, but not limited to organic. The PS does not support the framing of agricultural prices by maximum prices.

On nationalizations, the PS is against the nationalization of the marine energy branch of Alstom, the offshore wind branch of Areva and the Alcatel Submarine Network. He is also against the nationalization of generalist banks, such as EELV

Finally on the police, the PS will not support the creation of a commission of inquiry into “police violence”, a term which it rejects.
