Obviously, the government’s response to ensure the safety of mayors appears insufficient for many politicians. While the left found itself in Saint-Brevin-les-Pins (Loire-Atlantique), Wednesday, May 24, for ssupport the resigning mayor, Yannick Morezand denouncing the far right, initiatives have multiplied in recent days.
After receiving Mr. Morez on May 17, the Minister Delegate for Local Authorities, Dominique Faure, had detailed the government’s plan : a center for the analysis and fight against attacks on elected officials, the aggravation of the penalties incurred by the perpetrators of violence and the triggering of a “security pack” if necessary.
In grandstand published by The worldWednesday May 24, several elected socialists including Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol, mayor of Rouen and first deputy secretary of the party, Carole Delga, president of the Regions of France, or Anne Hidalgo, mayor of Paris, are asking for a reform to ensure a real “global status” local elected officials and their relatives. Because, they think, only general protection and professional and social guarantees will make it possible to treat “root evils”And “not just a punitive patch”.
Still within the New Popular Ecologist and Social Union (Nupes), the deputy Europe-Ecologie-Les Verts (EELV) of Val-d’Oise Aurélien Taché is working to bring together the groups of the National embly – at the exception of the National Rally (RN) – on a motion for a resolution by the end of the week. The idea is to ask for the creation of a commission of inquiry into far-right violence. In Saint-Brevin-les-Pins, it was the intimidation of a group of residents, formed after the announcement of the creation of a reception center for asylum seekers, isted by extremist groups, then the arson of his home, on which an investigation is underway, which prompted Yannick Morez to resign.
Legal and financial protection
Within the majority, reflection is also following its course. Tuesday, May 23, the Renaissance presidential group presented ten “firsts” measures “to protect the elected representatives of the Republic”. Like the government, Emmanuel Macron’s party proposes to strengthen the sanctions against the perpetrators of the violence. He also wants the state to be systematically required to protect elected officials, candidates and their families. This may involve covering the costs of security guards and any physical protection measures for elected officials.
