Quatennens “retired from his parliamentary work” but “not banned from the Chamber,” says Obono
LFI MEP Danièle Obono assured on Tuesday that the coordinator of the group Adrien Quatennens, who admitted domestic violence, had “retired from his parliamentary work” but that he had “no plenary ban”.
“We think he needs to be withdrawn, which means he doesn’t have to make a public speech,” the Paris MP confirmed to BFMTV.
However, “he will not be banned from the Chamber, he will be withdrawn from his parliamentary work” and “from his role as group coordinator,” she added.
When asked about a possible exclusion of Adrien Quatennens from the LFI group, she answered “no” because “we acted and accepted his political withdrawal”.
A source within the LFI group told AFP that Adrien Quatennens “is stepping down, it’s his decision. He has already retired from coordinating the movement and is not in the congregation. But he remains an MP”.
La France insoumise (LFI) Young Guard figure Adrien Quatennen, who is being investigated after a handrail for domestic violence, announced on Sunday that he is retiring “from his position as coordinator” of the movement and acknowledging violence against his wife .
Renaissance MP President Aurore Bergé told the press that “I don’t think his place is in the fence of a plenary chamber since (Adrien Quatennens) recognized violence”. “I’m not sure if he’s welcome,” she added.
“His mandate was entrusted to him by the people, it would be up to the people to decide,” said Daniele Obono.
“It’s not all or nothing, it’s a ridgeline that we’re trying to hold,” she explained.
You would encourage us to do it even better in the future. Thank you!
