Nearly six Frenchmen out of ten (58%) feel that the Front National, as well as Europe Ecologie Les Verts (also 58%) and the Modem (59%) ought to be represented in the National Assembly, according to a Mediaprism poll.
Note: Europe Ecologie Les Verts (EELV) is a coalition of "green" parties, though in reality ecology has become a front for the social and bio-ethical agenda of the Left. Cécile Duflot heads the group in France, while Daniel Cohn-Bendit is the leader in the EU Parliament.
The Modem is the party of "centrist" François Bayrou. As I mentioned back in April his only role seems to be to draw votes away from other parties, usually the Front National.
Through their response, the French people demonstrate tolerance and a political maturity that impels them to demand a plurality of viewpoints and opinions worthy, in their eyes, of a place in the representative National Assembly.
