This video from France says about itself:
11 October 2013
A French rights group has said it will lodge a formal legal complaint against the country’s interior minister for inciting racial hatred, after comments he made about Roma gypsies.
France’s interior minister then was Manuel Valls.
From the BBC:
25 September 2013
He has been criticised by human rights campaigners, the European Commission and one of his cabinet colleagues.
French President Hollande then did not sack Valls for his racism. Later, he promoted Valls to Prime Minister.
Valls is not just racist, but also an admirer of Tony Blair and his pro-Big Business anti-social policies. Valls proposed that the French Socialist Party should drop the name Socialist. Like Blair, he expected moving to the right would attract traditionally right-wing voters; while traditionally left-wing voters supposedly would not be able to go anywhere else, so would stay loyal. Like with Blair, practice proved Valls wrong.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Former Prime Minister Valls crosses over to Macron‘s En Marche!
Valls was a candidate in the Socialist Party primaries. Which he lost to more leftist Hamon. In the first round of the presidential election, most traditionally Socialist voters then did not vote for Hamon, but for still more leftist Mélenchon.
At the elections next month he wants to help Macron to get a majority in parliament.
The new French president must still approve Valls‘ candidacy.
It is not yet absolutely certain that Macron will do that. When Macron started En Marche! Valls cynically predicted it would fail. Macron may still remember now, after Valls‘ weathervane-like flip-flopping Damascene conversion. In December 2016, Macron called Valls a ‘traitor’. See also here. And Valls’ government was very impopular, so Valls may drive voters away from Macron rather than attracting them.
