Fuels: Roussel responds to Le Maire on the notion of “majority agreement”
The national secretary of the Communist Party, Fabien Roussel, referred to the attention paid to the parliamentary debate on the budget of Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, who had defended the legitimacy of the majority agreements on wages signed in the refineries, to demand the lifting of blockades.
“The time for negotiations is over. Negotiations were made, an agreement was reached, which means that violence must remain with the majority,” the minister said on Monday, while the blockades in front of tank farms and refineries continued.
Asked about RMC-BFMTV, the PCF MP from the North reminded him that “respecting a majority agreement” in his opinion also means “respecting a majority (who) voted for a tax on super-profits” against the government’s opinion apply. “It is to ensure that what we voted in the National Assembly does not contain a 49.3”.
Article 49.3 of the Constitution allows the government to pass a text without a vote, except for a motion of censure. The government has until Wednesday to act.
“We will be able to talk about it, respect majority agreements,” said Roussel wryly. “If there is a majority of MPs from left and right who vote for an alignment of grants to the municipalities, who ask for a tax on super-profits (…), it is necessary that this is respected in the financial bill “, he developed.
“We will talk about democracy when he has respected the work of the parliamentarians,” he added, also judging that “Bruno Le Maire would do better to think about how the workers of our country live”.
“At Total there are 10% of workers: it is precisely they who continue to express their anger today,” he recalled.
