Pensions: tumultuous scenes at the Assembly during a speech by Adrien Quatennens


The deputies of the majority had reserved a bronca for the parliamentarian, convicted of domestic violence. Sandrine Rousseau left the Hemicycle while the elected representative of the North was applauded by some Insoumis.

New incident in the National Assembly.

While the majority had been undergoing a long tunnel of amendments since the beginning of the evening to delete article 1 of the pension reform bill, the session suddenly became agitated around 10:30 p.m.

Moment when Adrien Quatennens stood up to speak, a first since his return to the Hemicycle after his sidelining and his conviction for domestic violence.

Bronca in the Hemicycle.

Orchestrated by the Renaissance deputies, booing copiously the ex-Insoumis and slamming on their desks to show their dissatisfaction.

The ecologist Sandrine Rousseau, very committed to the feminist struggle, left the Chamber immediately.

For their part, a few rebels, such as Sophia Chikirou, Antoine Léaument, Sébastien Delogu or Aurélien Saintoul, stand up to applaud their former colleague.

While others remain seated and seem to experience some discomfort.


It's a shame

," howl some Renaissance parliamentarians, including the president of the group, Aurore Bergé.

“And Damien Abad doesn’t bother you?”

, we hear in return in the Insoumis ranks.

"You applaud him!"

The opposition between the two groups lasts a few seconds, under the gaze of the other parliamentarians.

Then, MP Pierre Cazeneuve (Renaissance) takes the floor.

He rebels:

“What is happening tonight cannot remain silent.

You remain stoic.

Worse, you applaud

him, ”he yells to the Insoumis benches.

The meeting is suspended by the chairman of the meeting, deputy RN Sébastien Chenu.

Before resuming a few minutes later, in a regained calm.

Deputy LIOT Benjamin Saint-Huile, then non-registered nationalist deputy Emmanuelle Ménard, took turns speaking to denounce the attitude of the majority group.

No penalty of ineligibility has been pronounced.

We must respect the court decision

, ”says the latter, to the applause of the ranks of the Unsubmissive and the Republicans.

Consideration of amendments may be resumed.

Until the next blow?
