French PM refuses to 'promise the moon', clashes with far-right in debate

26/6/2024 6:48
        French prime minister Gabriel Attal accused his far-right and leftwing political opponents of "promising the moon" in a three-way televised debate on Tuesday ahead of next Sunday's first round of early parliamentary elections.
        
        In a muddled, confusing TV debate between leaders of the three top-polling blocs, Attal came under pressure from his far-right opponent, Jordan Bardella, who repeatedly interrupted him and accused him of "lecturing" and lacking credibility.
        
        "The difference between my competitors and me is that, as prime minister, I don't want to lie to the French. I don't want to promise them the moon," Attal said in the 90 minute debate that produced no major policy announcements.
        
        Opinion polls show the far-right National Rally (RN) winning the two-round election on June 30 and July 7, but without an absolute majority, potentially sharing power with centrist President Emmanuel Macron, who surprised the country by calling snap elections earlier this month.
