Six members of the National Executive Committee of the PCF (Frédérick Genevée, Isabelle Lorand, Fernanda Marrucchelli, Roger Martelli, Pierre Zarka, and Malika Zediri)
announced on Saturday, after the meeting of the National Council, their resignation from that body.

For them, the national leaders of the PCF, by remaining "deaf, as a majority, to the many demands sent to them, have taken the decision to refuse the search for a presidential candidate who would permit us to maintain and enlarge this unitary construction ... No matter what language the committee uses to clothe this action, it has to accept the blame for pulling the PCF out of this process. The ballot does not make clear the consequences of maintaining the candidature of Marie-George Buffet (first choice) as the upshot of this unitary process. "

"The choice of the party leadership", they continue, "turns its back on the majority views expressed in our congress, to the great delight of those who had fought against them. From this point onward, we can no longer take responsibility for the the actions that will follow logically from this decision. Right to the end, we will try to make a positive outcome possible."
