The National Assembly is examining a bill aimed at rebalancing the balance of power between agro-food manufacturers and large retailers.

pressure

" put by Michel-Edouard Leclerc on the deputies who are examining a bill aimed at rebalancing the balance of power between industrialists in the food industry and large distribution.

Before the Association of Parliamentary Journalists (AJP), the deputy of Yvelines pointed out "

the way in which he intends to put pressure on the National Assembly

".

"

We can't work like that, Parliament is sovereign

," she argued.

We are harassed by emails, messages

” and Mr. Leclerc bought pages for his communication in the newspapers, she listed.

The Renaissance bill, examined by deputies since Tuesday evening, aims to "

restore a minimum of fairness

" between suppliers and distributors during price negotiations, according to Ms. Bergé.

But it is "

madness and a scandal

" in the eyes of the chairman of the strategic committee, E. Leclerc, who asserts that the text "

will add inflation to inflation

".

Mr. Leclerc "

refused to meet

" the author of the bill, Frédéric Descrozaille, "

but met Sébastien Chenu

", RN deputy from the North, pointed out Aurore Bergé: "

Let him not tell us that the fight of his life is against the extreme right

".

Is she herself under the influence of other lobbies than Leclerc?

His companion, the former deputy Grégory Besson-Moreau, now does strategy consulting and has been in contact with Ilec, the consumer industries liaison institute representing many industrialists.

The institute is accused by large retailers of being the source of the Renaissance text.

Aurore Bergé challenged any submission to lobbies: "

I work with stakeholders in complete transparency

" on the texts of the law, which is "

rather healthy

", she noted.

In addition, the interests of parliamentarians are “

very controlled, which is normal

”.

"

I hope my companion still has the right to work

," she added,

I don't have a temperament to be under the influence

”.
