La Nupes announces the filing of a motion of censure against the government this Wednesday


The 151 deputies of the Nupes intergroup will table a motion of censure against the government of Elisabeth Borne this Wednesday, before its declaration of general policy.

The Nupes left alliance in the National Assembly announced the tabling of a motion of censure this Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. against the government of Elisabeth Borne, just before its declaration of general policy, several of its members indicated. .

Its signatories present it as a "

motion of no confidence

" in the Prime Minister who has not planned to ask for a vote of confidence on Wednesday.

This will put each and everyone face to face with their responsibilities

”, affirmed to the press the president of the deputies LFI Mathilde Panot, who sees in this motion “

a question of principle

” in front of a head of government who “

veils her eyes


The communist Sébastien Jumel stressed that it was not possible for the left to grant confidence "

a priori

", hence this motion of censure, "

the only tool available

The four left-wing groups at the Palais Bourbon - LFI, PCF, ecologist, PS - are associated with it, but some individual deputies may not co-sign it, such as the socialist Valérie Rabault who has distanced herself from Nupes.

In the PS group, “

there are internal debates and the majority has decided to support this proposal

”, indicated their leader Boris Vallaud.

“Quite childish as an approach”

Is this motion a test for Nupes?

Boris Vallaud and Julien Bayou, co-president of the ecologist deputies, replied together that “

it is a test for the government


Such a motion is admissible only if it is signed by at least one tenth of the members of the National Assembly, ie 58 deputies.

The Nupes alone has 151 deputies.

The motion must be submitted to the vote of the National Assembly at least 48 hours after its tabling, under article 49-2 of the Constitution, that is to say Friday at the beginning of the afternoon at the earliest.

To bring down the government, however, it would need to gather an absolute majority, which seems unlikely for lack of a rallying of the opposition.

The RN group (89 deputies) in particular has not planned to vote in favor.

We are not here to block everything, to break everything, we are there to propose solutions

”, according to its spokesperson Sébastien Chenu.

The same for the LR group (62 deputies): "

We will not play this game

", indicated its president Olivier Marleix on LCI.


It seems to me quite childish as an approach (...) and totally useless

", he criticized, referring to a "

strategy of somewhat theatrical tension

" on the part of LFI.

Asked whether she was calling on the far right to vote for the motion, Mathilde Panot replied: “

I am not calling on anyone to vote


And Julien Bayou to add: “

I don't call them to anything at all, I don't even greet them
