After its disappointments on the questure, La France insoumise (LFI) won, Thursday, June 30 at noon, the battle for the presidency of the finance committee. After several hours of suspense where the suspensions of the session multiplied, the rebellious deputy of Seine-Saint-Denis, Éric Coquerel, was elected to one of the most coveted positions in the legislature.
Attributed, according to the regulations of the National Assembly, to “a deputy belonging to a group that has declared itself to be in opposition”this presidency, which was once occupied by socialists (such as Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Henri Emmanuelli and, a few years later, Jérôme Cahuzac), and during the last legislature by the elected Les Républicains (LR), who has since moved to Emmanuel Macron, Éric Woerth, indeed offers a significant power of investigation in fiscal and budgetary matters.
Hence the panic that has gripped the right in recent weeks, LR deputy Julien Dive fearing that the commission will become “the antechamber of Mediapart”Gilles Carrez fearing that the Insoumis was about to “throwing the tax files of individuals, even companies”. Éric Coquerel appeared in particular against the deputy of the National Rally (RN) Jean-Philippe Tanguy, who denounced a “piracy” after his defeat. Marine Le Pen spoke of ” notnew betrayal » by attacking what she describes as“sectarian extreme left”.
