The problem of the existence of the National Front and the material endowment of deputies. Return on the political news of Wednesday February 3, 2021.
Gérald Darmanin and the problem of the existence of the National Front
The Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin left the road in front of the deputies on Wednesday February 3. The minister referred to an amendment proposed by the National Front as part of the bill on respect for the principles of the Republic. Gérald Darmanin then not very subtly insinuated that if the amendment in question was adopted, the Front National would have difficulty in surviving it.
” Anyone who denies a genocide who denies an extermination in history, must be dissolved, the National Front would have some problems of existence “. National Front ? Simple error of the minister or the latter covers up so as not to be accused of having mentioned a possible dissolution of the National Rally.
Eric Ciotti assumes the increase in the material endowment of deputies
The three Quaestors of the National Assembly in charge of the budget, Eric Ciotti, Florian Bachelier and Laurianne Rossi assume the 15% increase in the material endowment of deputies. In the midst of a health and economic crisis, the latter increases by 236 euros per month for an annual total of 21,700 euros. An increase strongly criticized even among deputies. Three LREM deputies from Var, Sereine Mauborgne, Cécile Muschotti and Valérie Gomez-Bassac, particularly deplored such an increase in the midst of a national and global crisis.
For the LR deputy and quaestor Eric Ciotti, the controversy is purely “demagogic”. The deputy for Alpes-Maritime fully assumes the decision of the quaestors and explains it precisely by the Covid-19 crisis. ” With the crisis and teleworking, many deputies have seen their IT and postage expenses increase. This is why we have chosen to increase their maximum potential package by € 236 per month, thanks to significant management savings that have been made elsewhere. ”In addition, Eric Ciotti recalls that this envelope is a ceiling which is not necessarily entirely spent each year by its holder.
