It was a controversial decision. And that still does not pass. The vote of deputies of the majority that allowed the RN to access two positions of vice-presidents of the Assembly at the beginning of the legislature, was a "mistake", said Saturday the deputy macroniste Sacha Houlié, president of the Commission of laws.
"There is a whole strategy of legitimization of the National Rally, for which we could make mistakes" and "clearly", the "vote for the RN deputies to the vice-presidencies" was one, said the deputy (Renaissance) of Vienne on France Culture.
"Now they have the functions, they are representative and it is difficult to exclude them without victimization on their part. This is a great difficulty for us," he continued. If the co-founder of the Youth with Macron understands "the idea that everyone (has) the right to his fair representation according to the ballot box", he will abstain for his part "to vote for elected RN", if the question were to rest, as he did at the beginning of the mandate.
A new office on October 2
At the time, Eric Woerth supported this vote. "Obviously in the representation of the structure of the Assembly, it is logical that there are two of the six vice-presidents who are RN." It was the reflection of "all the sensibilities" expressed "by the French", according to Aurore Bergé (Renaissance).

The Bureau of the Assembly, which brings together Vice-Presidents, Quaestors and Secretaries, is due to be renewed on 2 October. A meeting of group leaders is to be held on Tuesday around Assembly President Yaël Braun-Pivet, to see if an agreement is emerging in favour of a renewal of the Bureau in its current composition without a vote.
If the ecologists have called on the majority to remove the two RN vice-presidents from the Bureau, the president, Yaël Braun-Pivet has clearly pronounced herself in favor of the status quo, during the parliamentary days of Renaissance last week.
