the left lodges appeals with the Constitutional Council on the two texts

MPs from the left-wing Nupes alliance lodged appeals with the Constitutional Council against the two texts on purchasing power on Friday, August 5. They denounce measures contrary to “several principles” and “values” constitutional. The Elders now have a month to decide.

The first appeal, at the initiative of the Nupes intergroup, concerns the amending finance bill (PLFR), accused of being “contrary to several constitutional principles”, according to a press release. Communists, socialists, ecologists and rebels pin the “monetization of working time recovery days (RTT)”considering that the amendment constitutes a “budget rider”, which has no place in a finance law, and which they believe should fall under “the censorship of the Constitutional Council”.

The “removal of the audiovisual license fee” is also singled out, since the proposed alternative financing mechanism does not allow, according to them, “to ensure the security of the financing of the establishments” audiovisuals. The State has planned to compensate for the lack by allocating part of the VAT, until December 31, 2024. The signatory deputies, for their part, denounce a law which “disregards the principle of budgetary sincerity because of the chronic and manifest undervaluation of revenue forecasts”.

In the hemicycle, the whole of Nupes voted against this amending finance bill definitively adopted Thursday in parliament.

On the other hand, only the LFI and EELV groups filed a second appeal with the Elders on Friday against the bill on emergency measures for the protection of purchasing power.

They believe that “several provisions of this bill favoring the development of fossil fuels”, such as the potential to reactivate coal-fired power plants and the commissioning of an LNG terminal. It brings “a serious and manifest attack on the constitutional objective of protecting the environment, the common heritage of human beings, arising from the 2004 Environmental Charter”write the elected officials.

During the examination of the text, the communists, the ecologists and the rebellious had voted against but the socialists had abstained.
