Greens Reject Cohn-Bendit Motion

Daniel Cohn-Bendit, who favors closer cooperation between the Greens and the Socialists with a premium on winning the presidency, saw his motion rejected this weekend by EELV militants, only 26.5% voted in favor of it. So he is pulling back from participation in the party's preparations for the presidential election and will not attend the La Rochelle congress. He considers that his attempt to change the orientation of the Greens has failed.

Cohn Bendit once famously said:
"Do you want to be right or do you want to win?"

EELV has made its choice. The European Election Victory is likely to remain a one-shot and Cochet or others in the bickering ranks may wonder why.
