July and August 2022

News from the board

Volt France - Bulletin Août 2022 - Journées d'été de RP&S
Journées d'été of RP&S

Sven Franck, co-president and Robin Fontaine, non-executive member of the Board, attended the 27th Summer University organised by the Regions and People's Solidarity (R&PS) party, with which Volt France had a technical agreement during the last legislative elections. It was an opportunity to discuss the challenges of participation in the European elections, the need to participate and the possibility of participating together, because, although there is proportionality, the obstacles for small parties are very important.

Italian elections

Volt France - Bulletin Août 2022 - élections en Italie
Les élections en Italie

As you know, Italy is going to early parliamentary elections on 25 September 2022, after the fall of the national unity government led by Mario Draghi, former ECB President.

Volt Italy will take part in the centre-left coalition, as part of the Partito Democratico list (PD-Italia Democratica e Progressista list), with substitute candidates/replacements. This means that we will campaign in support of the list and the coalition, to defend the ideas of a federal, democratic and open Europe against right-wing and extreme right-wing parties standing on the doorstep of power.
