National Assembly: Eric Coquerel (LFI) wins the very strategic presidency of the finance committee The “rebellious” deputy won Thursday against his competitor from the National Rally, Jean-Philippe Tanguy, after a secret ballot vote in the National Assembly. In the third round, Eric Coquerel totaled 21 votes, Jean-Philippe Tanguy gathered 11 votes; and Véronique Louwagie (LR), nine votes. The third round for the presidency of the finance committee has begun, Charles de Courson (Liot) has withdrawn his candidacy Charles de Courson (Liberties, independents, overseas territories and territories) has finally withdrawn his candidacy before the third round which has just begin to decide who will chair the Finance Committee of the National Assembly. The presidents of the standing committees elected, pending that of the Finance Committee Committee on Cultural Affairs and Education: Agnès Firmin Le Bodo (Horizons) Committee on Economic Affairs: Guillaume Kasbarian (Renaissance) Committee on Foreign Affairs: Jean-Louis Bourlanges (Democrat) Committee on Social Affairs: Fadila Khattabi (Renaissance) Committee on National Defense and the Armed Forces: Thomas Gassilloud (Renaissance) Committee on Sustainable Development and Regional Planning: Jean-Marc Zulesi (Renaissance) Committee on constitutional laws, legislation and the general administration of the Republic: Sacha Houlié (Renaissance) Jean-Louis Bourlanges (Democrat) is elected chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Jean-Louis Bourlanges, deputy for the 12th constituency of Hauts- de-Seine, member of the Democrat group (MoDem and Independents), was elected chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee eras of the National Assembly. Sacha Houlié (Renaissance) is elected chairman of the law commission Sacha Houlié, MP for the 2nd district of Vienne and member of the Renaissance group, has been elected chairman of the law commission. Suspensions of sittings in committee are frequent. The decision to suspend rests with its members and those of the provisional office, for various reasons. Here, it is probably to give the political groups present time to discuss the results of the first rounds and agree on the strategy to adopt for the third. The deputy of La France insoumise, Eric Coquerel, would be elected with 20 votes if the results are identical to the previous rounds, since only the relative majority of the votes cast is necessary in the third round. Only the 73 deputies who are members of the Finance Committee vote to elect their president and the 32 deputies of the majority, as has been the practice for several years, do not take part in the ballot so that the position is occupied by a deputy member of an opposition group. Taking these two elements into account, the participation rate is 100% this morning. The “impossible mission” of Elisabeth Borne, in search of an absolute majority The Prime Minister must meet Emmanuel Macron on Friday to make him proposals on a “roadmap” and “the composition of a new government of ‘action”, explains our journalist Alexandre Lemarié.

Jean-Philippe Tanguy (RN): 11 votes. Véronique Louwagie (LR): 8 votes. Charles De Courson (LIOT): 2 votes. No candidate having collected the absolute majority of the votes cast, a third round will therefore take place in a few minutes. No election in the first round for the presidency of the finance committee The vote for the first round to run for the presidency of the finance committee has just taken place. The deputies Eric Coquerel (LFI), Jean-Philippe Tanguy (RN) and Véronique Louwagie (LR) were candidates and a fourth was finally invited at the last minute: it is Charles de Courson (Liberties, independents, in addition -sea and territories, LIOT). The candidate of La France insoumise totals 20 votes out of 41, the candidate of the National Rally has 11 votes, the candidate of LR, 8 votes; and finally the LIOT candidate, two votes. So there will be a second round.

JULIEN MUGUET FOR “THE WORLD” The eight permanent committees meet for the first time in the 16th legislature to elect their bureau The eight permanent committees – each deputy must belong to one of them –, meet for the first time in the 16th legislature since 10.30 a.m. to elect their bureau, made up of the secretariat (four places), the vice-presidency (four places) and the Presidency. The rules of procedure of the National Assembly provide that the presidency of the finance committee falls to an elected member sitting in a declared opposition group. A general rapporteur is also elected to finance, as well as to the social affairs commission. The Finance Committee is by far the most scrutinized, because it has a strategic role of examining budgets before their arrival in the Hemicycle, or bills, such as that on purchasing power expected in July. It also offers access to information covered by tax secrecy, without however being able to reveal it. MPs Eric Coquerel (La France insoumise), Jean-Philippe Tanguy (National Rally) and Véronique Louwagie (Les Républicains) are running for the presidency of the finance committee during a secret ballot vote at the National Assembly.

Support “Le Monde” by subscribing In the Assembly, the National Rally obtains two of the six vice-presidencies, the Nupes denounces an arrangement with the presidential majority The deputies Sébastien Chenu and Hélène Laporte notably benefited from the votes of the majority to access at the office of the National Assembly, to the detriment of the left alliance. Read also: In the Assembly, the National Rally obtains two of the six vice-presidencies, the Nupes denounces an arrangement with the presidential majority Absolutely: if the 11 deputies of the National Rally (RN), the 8 deputies of the Republicans (LR ) and the 2 deputies of the group Freedoms, independents, overseas and territories vote for the candidate of the RN, Jean-Philippe Tanguy, the latter will obtain the absolute majority and will be elected president of the finance committee. This remains very uncertain, on the one hand because the political cost for LR to support the RN would be significant, on the other hand because the right-wing party is also presenting a candidate, Véronique Louwagie, who should recover part of the ballots in the first round. For the voting method, we detailed it a little earlier in this direct. In the National Assembly, Nupes put to the test of the struggle for places Domination of LFI, divergence of strategy against the RN: the appointment of the office of the Assembly has brought to light the difficulties of the New Popular Ecological and Social Union to move forward united, write our journalists Mariama Darame and Julie Carriat.
