Invited in the Matinale, this Saturday, July 23, on CNEWS, the LR deputy for Pas-de-Calais, Pierre-Henri Dumont, declared that the Les Républicains party will be, during the five-year term, in firm but responsible opposition within of the National Assembly.
The deputy LR of Pas-de-Calais and deputy secretary general of the Republicans, Pierre-Henri Dumont, declared that the party Les Républicains will not only be a firm opposition within the National Assembly and that it will remain responsible. “Responsible, what does that mean? It is when we manage to pass proposals which have been rejected for five years by the Republic in motion and that there they are accepted, obviously that we vote for them, ”declared the deputy LR from Pas-de-Calais.
The relative majority, a chance for Les Républicains?
This Friday, July 21, the National Assembly voted unanimously, less one vote, the deconjugalization of the disabled adult allowance. “It was a bill carried several times by Aurélien Pradié during the previous five-year term. This time, thanks to all the opposition, and therefore the majority that was forced to vote for it, it was adopted. It’s more purchasing power for people who didn’t ask for anything and who find themselves in a situation of handicap. It is thanks to the deputies Les Républicains and the other oppositions that they were able to have it, ”added the deputy secretary general of the Republicans.
Regarding the amending finance bill, some of the amendments proposed by the LRs passed thanks to the support of the majority and some of the ideas are taken up in the texts. This relative majority within the National Assembly could thus turn out to be an opportunity for the Republicans. “That’s how it should work in all democracies. It is not because there is an absolute majority that the comments made by the opposition are necessarily bad. There are good ideas everywhere. This government had been closed to opposition ideas for five years. Now they are discovering, with a backlash, that politically the oppositions have good ideas,” reported Pierre-Henri Dumont.
The latter declared that the LR party was going to continue to convey the same message during this five-year term: “We will continue to convey the message that the middle classes must not be excluded from the possibilities of having more purchasing power and that means a massive drop in taxes and a drop in the liter of fuel”.
