The current Minister of Overseas, Yaël Braun-Pivet, was appointed Wednesday by the majority to take the presidency of the National Assembly and become the fourth character of the State. Yaël Braun-Pivet has a technical profile that leans to the left. If she is elected to the roost, she will have to leave the ministry.
Currently Minister of Overseas Territories, Yaël Braun-Pivet, MP for the 5th constituency of Yvelines since 2017, is a parliamentarian recognized for her technical skills. The general public discovered it in particular during the Benalla affair, when she chaired the law commission of the National Assembly. An experience she wants to put to good use.
A walker of the first hour
“As president of the law commission for five years, I showed how much I was able to work with the opposition, to bring the debate to life,” she says.
Walker of the first hour, coming from the socialist party (PS), the choice of the deputies of the majority is revealing. The group La République en Marche (LREM) favored a personality from the left. Especially since Yaël Braun-Pivet was facing Roland Lescure, coming rather from the liberal wing of En Marche and a candidate unofficially supported by the Elysée.
A kind of revenge for the deputy. Former President of the Assembly Richard Ferrand had pushed Emmanuel Macron for her to have a ministry, to prevent her from taking her place on the perch. Richard Ferrand beaten in the legislative elections, Yaël Braun-Pivet should preside over the National Assembly next Tuesday, after the vote of all the deputies.
