The Federation of the Republican Left (French: Fédération de la gauche républicaine; FGR) is a French political coalition of several small centre-left to left-wing parties.
Announced on 29 April 2022, following the 2022 French presidential election, the federation presents several candidates for the June 2022 French legislative election, often in alliance with the Radical Left Party and dissidents from the Socialist Party (PS) opposed to the integration of the PS into the New Ecological and Social People's Union.
Five political parties and several personalities announced their participation in the federation at its foundation:
On a personal note, several political figures have also expressed their support for the federation:
They were then joined by the groups Les Socialistes (created by slingers in 2016) and L'Écologie populaire.
In May 2022, the federation brought together seven parties: Republican and Socialist Left, Citizen and Republican Movement, Popular Ecology, Socialists, L'Engagement, Radicals of the Left, and New Socialist Left. In some constituencies, they have formed an alliance with the Radical Party of the Left.
The coalition declared to its foundation that it wants to work on the dynamics of rallying on the left. On 2 May a joint letter is sent to La France insoumise to begin negotiations to integrate the New Ecologic and Social People's Union (NUPES); this request went unanswered.
On 20 May the coalition announced that it would present candidates in more than a hundred constituencies for the 2022 French legislative election. They include alliances with the Radical Party of the Left, which internally rejected integration into NUPES, and with dissidents from the Socialist Party. Their representatives present themselves as the candidates of the "secular and republican" left between Emmanuel Macron and Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
