New party launched, aims to run in 2019Thursday, 05 October 2017 16:10
The new party describes itself as a citizen’s party, between the left and the right, that aims to achieve economic recovery and an equitable society. “The most important element is ethics,” Barbara Dufour stressed. “We have drawn up a transparency charter.”
Dufour, a teacher, said the creation of Oxygène (Oxygen) was self-evident. “We chose action and that is why we did not just want a movement, but a party,” she said. “We wanted to make a commitment. It was a moral obligation.”
The name was not chosen at random, the party’s founders explain. It refers to life and people’s wellbeing, which is what Oxygène is all about, they say.
