Yellow Vests Have Become 'New Political Factor' in France's Affairs – Politician

Yellow Vests protesters have turned into a "new political factor" in French domestic affairs, Karel Vereycken, vice-president of the Solidarity and Progrès Party, told Sputnik, commenting on the movement's bid to take part in the upcoming EU parliamentary elections.

"What the Yellow Vests have gained after 12 weeks of protest is less tangible but much 'bigger' than the scrapping the planned increase of taxes on fuel and some pocket money," Karel Vereycken, a French journalist and vice-president of Solidarity and Progrès Party, headed by Jacques Cheminade, said.

"The Yellow Vests fight for recognition and dignity through better living standards, new forms of democracy, better infrastructure for all, a powerful national bank in charge of public credit, and more" the politician told Sputnik. "Much more than income, it means the right to be able to live correctly from their salary and to transmit something to the next generations. For them, if Macron refuses to change the current paradigm of self-destruction, he should quit".
