The bill relating to the management of the end of the crisis, including in particular the controversial health pass, was finally validated by the deputies of the National Assembly after a second vote. Who voted for, and who voted against?
With 208 votes for and 85 against, the bill relating to the management of the exit from the health crisis, article 1 of which includes the controversial use of a “health pass” conditioning the access of the population “to certain places, establishments or events involving large gatherings ”was validated by the National Assembly on May 12.
After a first vote, during which this article 1 was rejected by a majority of deputies (108 votes against 103, for a total of 577 deputies), the government asked for a second deliberation, which ended in the night with 205 votes for and 85 against. While the adopted article has been amended, the provisions on the health pass have not been changed.
The opposition has voiced its disagreement with the voting process, citing for some a “nocturnal masquerade”, a “grub”, or even “small arrangements between friends of the majority”.
Small arrangements between friends of the majority, not respectful of the French.
The health pass had been rejected. But @gouvernementFR need it, for what? Surely not for the good of the citizens! We stay in this liberticidal strategy # Covid_19. It’s shameful and contemptuous pic.twitter.com/vJVxuBu7OG
