Tuesday, June 28, a woman was elected president of the National Assembly, a first in France. Yaël Braun-Pivet is the guest of Dimanche en politique, Sunday July 3.

After more than ten months, the trial of the November 2015 attacks in France ended on June 29. Salah Abdeslam was sentenced to incompressible life imprisonment. The possibility of filming trials has been extended in the Dupont-Moretti law, for educational purposes. Will this bring justice closer to the French? “It is important that the courtrooms come (to the French)”assures Yaël Braun-Pivet, guest of Sunday in politics, Sunday July 3. “There is knowledge of the institution, and there is the fact that we can testify to how it happened”adds the President of the National Assembly, elected on Tuesday, June 28.

The first files awaiting Yaël Braun-Pivet, the first woman to access the Perchoir, are the measures to be taken against Covid-19 and the law on purchasing power, which interests the French in the first place. Covid-19 cases are exploding, will the health pass come back? “This is not what is provided for in the text of the law which will be submitted to Parliament this week”indicates the President of the National Assembly.

The purchasing power of the French has been at the heart of the electoral debates in recent months. The government has announced that it wants to maintain the drop of 18 cents per liter of gasoline or diesel, set up the food check, increase the civil servants. This must be debated from July 18 only in the National Assembly. When will the French see the color of all this? “The bill will have to be adopted before the end of July, beginning of August, to have very rapid effects”says Yaël Braun-Pivet.

The day after his election as chairman of the Finance Committee, Éric Coquerel saw accusations emerge for his behavior towards women. He denounces unfounded rumours. Would the President of the National Assembly be in favor of a kind of High Authority so that there are possibilities of investigating? “The possibilities to investigate belong only to justice”says Yaël Braun-Pivet.
