Legislative elections 2022 file The socialist elected representative of Charente, recently dismissed by Nupes, has lived for more than twenty years in intermediate rent accommodation in the 18th arrondissement, which had been allocated to his companion, according to “Mediapart”. Their situation has never been updated. It is sometimes good to remember the remuneration of a deputy: 7,239.91 euros per month. What in theory to stay in the private park, despite the exorbitant prices in progress in Paris. Yet Jérôme Lambert, elected socialist of Charente since 1986, is housed by a social landlord. Mediapart reports that the candidate for his re-election (he dissented, dismissed by the Nupes because of his anti-marriage for all and anti-PMA positions) has a Parisian apartment of 95 m2 at a rent of 971 euros per month . Located in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, such a property would be around 2,300 euros per month on the private market. More precisely, it is not a HLM but a PLI, intermediate rental housing, from the lessor Paris Habitat. This type of housing is reserved for families whose income is too high to have access to social housing rental, but too low to be housed in private housing. Thus Jérôme Lambert resides in the house he owns when he is in his Charente constituency, and in this Parisian accommodation when he goes to the Assembly. All at a lower cost. 1,114 euros including the charges and the parking space he rents in addition. “Nothing morally shocking”, according to Jérôme Lambert A manager of the social landlord confirmed the situation to Mediapart. The accommodation would have been allocated to the companion of Jérôme Lambert in 1997. He subsequently declared himself to be co-occupant, but did not report his income. However, if the occupant does not update his situation, the social landlord cannot intervene or know the reality of his income. “We will immediately write to him to ask for clarification,” said the head of Paris habitat. Questioned by Mediapart, the oldest member of France sees “nothing morally shocking”. “The price of rents in Paris is still something. The remuneration of the deputies is important but not sufficient to lodge beyond this rent, except to reside at the Assembly or at the hotel, ”he defends himself. Deputies elected outside Paris can in fact sleep at the Palais Bourbon or stay at a hotel when they are passing through the capital for their legislative activities. don’t see what is immoral”, the elected official further justifies himself, adding that if he had been accommodated at the hotel “it would also be with the taxpayer’s money”. The deputy nevertheless assured that he had planned to leave this accommodation “at the end of June”.
