The members of the unsubmitted France trigger a controversy over the European flag
A pout and an assassin sentence. "Frankly we have to endure this?" Jean-Luc Mélenchon had been very keen on presence of European flag in Hemicycle as soon as he arrived at Palais Bourbon in June. At time, his release had aroused an outcry, after a campaign where he had brandished threat of an exit from European Union if he came to power.

Belote, Tuesday, 3 October, when amendments tabled by Group France (BIA) were unveiled to a text amending rules of National Assembly. One of m proposes that "only [may] be present in Hemicycle tricolour flag of French Republic (...)" And flag of United Nations. »

"We are in a cycle where European Union has a brutal attitude, particularly in relation to Greece," explains member (BIA) Ugo Kansius. The United Nations seems to us to be more of an effective and respectful cooperation of sovereignty of each country. "In this Chamber we are voting for laws of Republic and we must stick to that," he defended in committee under Bronca of his colleagues.

Support from MPs FN

The masks have fallen, indignant Congressman (MoDem) Erwan-Lana. The French now know that France does not like Europe. "I wonder if Mr Mélenchon was so disturbed [by flag] when he sent his pay slips to European Parliament" when he was a member of House of Commons between 2009 and 2017, a said Sacha Hatem, member of Republic on March. "I am very proud to sit in front of se two flags," said president of Law Commission, Yaël Braun-Pivet, in applause of or Members who rejected amendment.

"It is to make talk and it works," observed Communist member Fabien Roussel. The subject was all more reiterated that "Insubordinates" received on this subject support of members of national Front, who even claim paternity. "They are right, I think we are going to vote on ir amendment," said MP FN Louis Adroudi.

The work of a national parliament is done under colours of national flag and not European flag, in turn judges frontman Sébastien Chenu. No matter who comes to resolution, I do not support Mélenchon but his initiative is visibly inspired by us. »

Uncomfortable, most members of BIA were very discreet about issue on Wednesday afternoon. Preferring to orient ir speeches to ir or amendments. The debate should resume on 10 October when text is passed in Hemicycle and before European flag.
