Anger of the deputies France Insubordinate Alexis Corbière and Francois Ruffin (d) in the National Assembly, in Paris on March 11, 2018
All the deputies of France Insoumise, furious that Clémentine Autain was cut before finishing his question to the government, left Wednesday the hemicycle after being massed a moment at the foot of the perch, held at a distance by ushers.
„Since the beginning of the week your government has embarked on a flight forward authoritarian especially dangerous for our democracy,“ denounced in his speech the elected representative of Seine-Saint-Denis, criticizing the government for provoking “ a sad disorder „at Notre-Dame-des-Landes and in the universities, brandishing“ the baton „.
The leader of the France Insoumise exclaimed on his bench: „the doglit, it is you“.
In a turbulent atmosphere, Ms. Autain also launched by majority: „your so-called new world is only a very old regime“.
The President of the National Assembly, François de Rugy (LREM), then cut the microphone to the MP LFI, his speaking time being completed, triggering the protest of the elect Insoumise. „The time for speaking the member is the same for everyone, it is two minutes,“ he said from the perch, before giving the floor to the Minister of the Interior Gérard Collomb.
The whole of the elected Insoumis then left their benches to go towards the bottom of the hemicycle, protesting against the president of the Assembly with strong gestures of the arms. Several of them, including Jean-Luc Mélenchon, approached the government bench and the perch, blocked at that moment by a cordon of ushers.
After a moment of hesitation, where they remained on the spot and continued to show their anger during Gerard Collomb’s intervention, the LFIs left the hemicycle, momentarily joined by the Communists.
The minister notably said that „this is where we debate and we do not send in the faculties and Notre-Dame-des-Landes a number of people inconsistent“, likely to „unleash violence that tomorrow we will no longer be able to contain.There is a form of irresponsibility that we must denounce, whatever our tendencies in relation to public opinion „.
„If there is no law and order, there is no country that holds“ and „public opinion is overwhelmingly behind us for a desire for dialogue,“ said Mr. Collomb, greeted by a standing ovation of the majority.
Speaking again, François de Rugy called on the deputies to „calm“, stressing that he was sticking to the speaking time of two minutes for nine months of the legislature. „I was even nicknamed the + serial-cutter in a newspaper and I’m ready to take on this role if I have to,“ he added.
Several LREM and MoDem have condemned the „shameful“ behavior of the Rogue. „I do not want a republic of ZADists wherever it is!“, Notably tweeted Benedict Simian (LREM). „Funny vision of democracy # The masks fall!“ The bailiffs forced to stand up to prevent uninvited deputies to do the punch. „Sadness,“ lamented Erwan Balanant (MoDem).
In the corridors, Ms. Autain pleaded that she wanted to finish her question and ask, „Mr. Prime Minister, will you attend the funeral of May ’68 and register behind those who condemned the doglit?“
