This is from a Le Monde interview with Jean-Claude Juncker.
Austrians could elect a far-right president on Sunday 22 May. You have called for people to vote for the Green party candidate. Do you confirm this call?
In view of the possibility of seeing a hard and pure right and far-right win, I feel obliged to say that I don't like them. Apparently Austrians haven't appreciated this, but I don't give a damn: with the far right, no debate or dialogue is possible.
You said before that a vote for the populists is a vote lost, but the populist vote is spreading throughout Europe? Why this change, do you think?
We don't need to run behind the populists, who often post good questions, but give the wrong answers. If the large traditional parties followed what they advocate, what kind of Europe and world would we live in? An anxious Europe characterised by rejection of the other? I am happy for it to be said that the traditional political parties have distanced themselves from the deep thought of part of public opinion, but that Europe would not be ours.Source
