De gule vestene annonserte onsdag at de kommer til å stille kandidater til EU-valget i mai. Skulle de kapre mandater vil det være den ultimate ydmykelse av Emmanuel Macron.

France’s anti-government “yellow vest” protesters are to put forward a list of candidates to run in upcoming European Parliament elections, it said on Wednesday.

Bevegelsen begrunner initiativet med at folk knytter store forhåpninger til dem og forventer politiske svar.

“The citizen movement … has shown the need to transform the anger into a political project capable of giving answers to the French people who have supported it,” the loosely grouped movement said in a statement.

En meningsmåling offentliggjort onsdag viser at de gule vestene ville fått 13 prosent av stemmene, en god nummer tre.

That would put it behind President Emmanuel Macron’s party Republique en Marche (Republic On the Move) party with 22.5 percent and the far right Rassemblement National (National Rally) — formerly the National Front — with 17.5 percent.

Men det er langt frem til mai.
