Is there an agreement in the distribution of positions in the National Assembly? “It is the consequence of the formation of the Assembly itself”, assured the deputy Renaissance Éric Woerth on Europe 1 Thursday. “Anyone who seeks to see political agreements, either they don’t know anything about it or they are lying.”

A sharing in the distribution of positions in the National Assembly between Together, the RN and LR? Éric Woerth, Renaissance deputy (ex-LR) from Oise and former chairman of the finance committee, was the guest of Sonia Mabrouk on Thursday. He assures us that is not the case. “It’s not an agreement: you see that there are 89 deputies [RN d’un côté]that on the other there are 245 [Ensemble !]that in the third [groupe] there are 131 [Nupes]… So it is necessary!”, he detailed. “The positions are distributed in proportion, which is perfectly logical: it is the consequence of the formation of the Assembly itself.”

“It is necessary” that the work of the hemicycle “begins”

In this regard, one of the three new quaestors of the 16th legislature considers that “all those who seek to see political agreements in this, either they know nothing about it, or they are lying”. And to complete: “No, there is no political agreement.” According to Éric Woerth, “the political agreements will come on the texts” of law. The hemicycle “is there to vote on texts, make laws, control the law, control the government”, he lists, before concluding: “That is the work of the Assembly. We must now let him begin.”

A “photograph of the Assembly”

Is the fact that there are two vice-presidents of the RN in the National Assembly a reassuring signal vis-à-vis the functioning of our institutions, or on the contrary worrying? “Both,” he said, explaining that “it’s the composition of the National Assembly.” A “complex composition” without an absolute majority, which “requires compromises”, but it is a “photograph of the Assembly, it is logical”, adding that “it is not politics, but Arithmetic”.
