National Assembly: the rebellious Éric Coquerel elected to chair the Finance Committee

-

Published on: 06/30/2022 – 12:25 Common candidate of the left-wing coalition Nupes, Eric Coquerel, deputy of La France insoumise, was elected Thursday for one year chairman of the Finance Committee of the National Assembly, a strategic post assigned to the opposition. It is therefore to the left-wing opposition that the prestigious and strategic presidency of the Finance Committee of the National Assembly falls. Common candidate for Nupes, Eric Coquerel, 63, won in the third round with 21 votes against 11 for RN candidate Jean-Philippe Tanguy and 9 for LR Véronique Louwagie, while the majority deputies abstained .After three adjournments, MP Charles de Courson (Liberties, Independents, Overseas and Territories) withdrew his candidacy for this decisive third round. The Finance Committee, the only one whose presidency has been reserved for the opposition since 2007 has a strategic role: the examination of the budgets before their arrival in the hemicycle, or bills like the one on purchasing power expected in July. It also offers access to information covered by tax secrecy, without however being able to reveal them. Negotiations have been going well for ten days. They accelerated on Tuesday with the announcement of a common candidate from the left alliance Nupes, preferred internally to the socialist Valérie Rabault, forced to give up in the face of the leadership of the LFI, the most important left force in the Assembly. In exchange, she obtained a vice-presidency of the institution. The RN, which was eyeing the post, shouted at the “maneuver” after this agreement between the four left-wing groups Nupes, or 151 deputies in total. The candidate of the far-right party Jean-Philippe Tanguy called on Tuesday to “enforce the spirit of the rules” of the Assembly, by entrusting the presidency to the largest opposition group – the RN has 89 deputies against 75 Insoumis. The regulations simply stipulate that the post must go to an elected member of an opposition group. Eric Coquerel already sat among the 70 or so members of the commission during the previous legislature. He is elected for one year like the other committee chairmen. The deputy of the majority Jean-René Cazeneuve (Renaissance, new name of LREM), the only candidate, obtained the other key position of the Finance Committee, general rapporteur of the budget. The majority at the head of the other commissions The other commissions are divided between 7 elected members of the majority: 5 Renaissance (ex-LREM), one elected Horizons and one Modem. 33 years old, who will preside. In Social Affairs, Fadila Khattabi, Renaissance MP for Côte-d’Or was re-elected. Guillaume Kasbarian, Renaissance MP, will lead the Economic Affairs Committee. Thomas Gassilloud (Rhône), another deputy from the presidential party, takes the helm of the National Defense and Armed Forces Committee. Agnès Firmin Le Bodo, Horizons deputy for Seine-Maritime is elected to Cultural Affairs and Education. In Foreign Affairs, MoDem MP Jean-Louis Bourlanges (Hauts-de-Seine) was re-elected. Jean-Marc Zulesi (Renaissance, Bouches-du-Rhône) heads the Sustainable Development and Regional Planning Commission. Unlike 2017, parity is not respected in these senior positions. But the macronists take shelter behind the election of Yaël Braun-Pivet as President of the Assembly, the first woman on the perch, and Aurore Bergé as patroness of the LREM parliamentary group. Since the constitutional reform of 2008, the permanent committees have more power. They are the first to take up a text that corresponds to their field of competence and can amend it. The chairmen of the committees can also intervene during the meetings, when they wish, on a text that concerns them. A privilege, while speaking time is tightly controlled in the hemicycle.
