POLITICAL SCANNING - Returning to his first steps as a deputy, the deputy friend of France believes that it is in fact at the Elysee that laws are made, and that the Bourbon Palace is reduced to playing the registration chambers.
The deputy reporter of France Insoumise has never hidden: he has been bored in the Assembly. Regularly delivering his analyzes and impressions, François Ruffin has several times surprised the codes and uses of the Bourbon Palace, or the lack of debate within the majority to vote texts. Guest this Wednesday morning on BFM, he remains faithful to this practice of subjective transparency, in the exercise of his mandate. The Amiénois delivers a record without appeal what he could observe at the beginning of the legislature: "the theater" of the factory of the law does not convince him.
"What I see in the National Assembly is that it is flan. The law is not made in the Assembly, it is done at the Elysee. The Parliament is a registry of the desires of the president with deputies who vote in time. That's how it happens, "says François Ruffin. "It opens a platform, but this is not the law," he notes again. We have seen indeed that the first-time elected representatives are inclined to use this platform to its full potential, as when Jean-Luc Mélenchon and his group unwrapped in the hemicycle a bag of races to protest against the decline of 5 euros APL, announced by the majority for the return.
The National Assembly, reduced to playing the "registration chambers", a phenomenon whose director of Thanks boss does not attribute the merits to Emmanuel Macron alone. "The bulk of the policy of François Hollande passed to the Assembly, without much damage, and he had many slingers," he says. A way, by the way, to scratch the discipline of voting according to him mechanics of the elected representatives of the current majority. This trend, François Ruffin has tried to stem, in vain. "I had asked as an amendment that the legislative elections take place on the same day as the presidential election or a year later, but not a month after the government finds itself with excessive majorities and where all the power lies with the president," he said. reminded the boss of the newspaper engaged Fakir.
Ruffin wants to "learn" from Jean-Luc Mélenchon
During the presidential election, Jean-Luc Mélenchon had let it be understood that he was probably leading his last battle, because of his age. This raises the question of the establishment of a "succession" for the tribune of France Insoumise. The name of François Ruffin is evoked recurrently, to the point that some already anticipate a possible competition in the future between these two explosive figures of the radical left.
This rivalry, Ruffin intends to contradict resolutely on RMC. "I landed in politics. I've been doing my newspaper for 18 years, which is another way of doing politics. But I entered politics in the spring, and when we have someone like Jean-Luc Mélenchon at his side, we first have a lot to learn, "he says.
