“A controversy with two bullets”. Since Wednesday morning, “day one” of the extension of the health pass, Richard Ferrand finds himself at the center of a violent controversy. According to the Opinion, the President of the National Assembly would have opposed an amendment, carried by LREM parliamentarians, which provided for making the health pass mandatory to allow deputies to access the hemicycle of the Palais Bourbon. Richard Ferrand would have considered that such a measure, pledge of exemplarity, would not be validated by the Constitutional Council because it would constitute an obstacle to the exercise of the parliamentary mandate.
It’s for the beggars
Since then, the information, misinterpreted, is presented as an “opposition” by Richard Ferrand “to the health pass in the Assembly”. It makes the cabbage fat of social networks and the happiness of anti pass, in a very tense context.
“Ferrand does not want a Health Pass at the National Assembly, as if the deputies, in addition to their parliamentary immunity, had health immunity! With Ferrand, the virus is popular, not parliamentary! »Commented, for example, on twitter, Gilbert Collard, the former lawyer and current MEP of the National Rally. “Richard Ferrand refused the Health Pass to access the National Assembly. Yes, all that is for the beggars! », Also rebelled Florian Philippot, ex very close to Marine Le Pen and current boss of the Patriots.
Since this morning, the elected Finistère and his entourage are therefore trying to demine. It is “fake news” annoys the person concerned. “Contrary to erroneous information circulating, the Presidency of the Assembly recalls that, as soon as the law relating to the management of the health crisis is adopted, it will obviously be applied to the National Assembly, in compliance parliamentary missions, ”he explained in a press release. “When the elected officials proposed the amendment, Richard said why not, explains a member of his entourage. He nevertheless explained that this measure risked being considered unconstitutional because it could lead a parliamentarian to be refused access to his seat, and therefore, to fully exercise his mandate entrusted by the voters. This is not allowed by the constitution to protect elected officials from possible abuses that the country could experience in dark hours. We are therefore not going to pass an amendment that we already know is illegal. It would be stupid. “
From there to saying that Richard Ferrand is “in favor of the sanitary pass in the country, except in the Assembly”, there is a step that the anti pass has taken briskly, to the chagrin of Finistérien. The health pass? He already enforces it, assures a relative, citing the example of the traditional end-of-session drink. This took place yesterday Tuesday at the Hôtel de Lassay, the seat of the presidency of the Assembly. To have access to it, all elected officials had to show a white paw.
