For several weeks, a little music has been rustling in the mysteries of power. Emmanuel Macron would have raised the hypothesis with his relatives of a dissolution of the National Assembly, in the wake of the presidential election, for, in the event of re-election, to quickly move on to the legislative elections. And thus save time in parliamentary work, to implement its project.
Details on the parliamentary indemnity
This rumor traveled the way from rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré to rue de l’Université. And many deputies were moved by it. Consequence: Monday, April 4, the secretary general of the questure, Catherine Leroy, sent a note to the three quaestors of the Bourbon palace, Eric Ciotti (LR), Florian Bachelier (LREM) and Laurianne Rossi (LREM).
The note addressed to the quaestors of the National Assembly.

This three-page document, which Europe 1 has obtained, “explains the main effects of a dissolution on the compensation scheme for deputies as well as on their collaborators”. Thus, it is specified that “the parliamentary allowance is paid in full the month of the dissolution, therefore in April in the case of a dissolution pronounced that month.”
A subject studied at the request of several deputies from all sides
On the other hand, “in the event of dissolution, the end of the mandate of all the deputies entails the end of the contract of all the collaborators (…) thus implying the payment of indemnities.”
Contacted by Europe 1, the first quaestor of the National Assembly, LREM deputy Florian Bachelier, explains that it was at the request of several deputies, from all political stripes, that the subject was studied. “A very classic way of doing things, we receive a request, we respond to it. You don’t have to see anything more,” he explains.
