Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, I don't know more details. I'm not sure they're settled. I suspect they're waiting to gain time and to see the landscape shaping on their left:
  • The far left has decided to go solo (Besancenot, Laguiller, and Buffet separately), which means they are politically dead because after 2002 no-one will vote for them on 1st round.
  • Which means Buffet (PC) could still possibly be dissuaded to run by including PC in a left platform
  •  and then there is the unknown of the greens, who can't make up their mind for their candidate: either Voynet (which the PS could try to buy into a platform), or Cochet (who is pretty much a Pol-pot style agrarian revolutionary peaknik to me - call me a techno-fascist)
