Attacks on elected officials: Senate votes on text allowing associations to become civic parties

The Senate on Tuesday evening unanimously passed a bill allowing associations of elected officials to become civilian parties in support of a chosen victim of aggression. The text was adopted on first reading with the support of the Keeper of the Seals. The text submitted by Nathalie Delattre within the parliamentary “niche” reserved for the Radical Majority RDSE group was rewritten in “joint construction” with Eric Dupont-Moretti. Now he must go to the National Assembly.

“The new wording allows all associations of elected officials, recognized as socially useful, having national influence and sufficient authority, to become civilians,” the Minister of Justice explained. The association must be registered at least five years in advance. AMF (mayors), ADF (departments), and regions of France are mentioned by name in the text. “The Senate, the National Assembly, the European Parliament or the relevant local authorities” can also act in support of their members, according to the text.

“We are also expanding the scope of relevant offenses to include all crimes and misdemeanors against persons and property, certain attacks against persons in positions of public authority, and all press-related offenses,” the minister said. Relatives living under the same roof as the chosen one will enjoy the same protection.

“An attack on an elected official means an attack on the Republic”

The text also takes into account “the new risks to elected officials, in particular the disclosure of personal information online,” said the Minister in charge of local government, Caroline Caille. She wanted it to be “quickly considered” by the deputies. “An attack on an elected official is an attack on the Republic,” the Keeper of the Seals said, pointing out that “509 attacks on elected officials have been brought to justice” since the presidential election.

During the debate, the names of elected officials who were victims of the aggression were named, including the name of the mayor of Sinh (Var) Jean-Mathieu Michel, who died in 2019 after being hit by a van trying to dump debris to rescue. The recent case of LFI MP Louis Boyard being insulted live by host Cyril Hanuna on C8 was also mentioned by several speakers.

“I am far from sharing all the ideas of this parliamentarian, but I want to express my support to him in his trial. Nothing justifies such ruthlessness,” said Natalie Delatre. “The escalation of absurdity and violence that we saw during this television episode only existed to answer this thirst for sound bites, which generates hype that is not worthy of either the political class or the journalistic class,” said PS Senators leader Patrick. Kanner.
