(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - policy, Who still believes in the National Assembly? (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 18 Jun 2017 19:37:58 +0300

Close to 52 % of abstention. It is with the suffrage of less than 16 % of the registrants that the macronists will win, next Sunday, between 67 and 74 % of the seats at the Palais-Bourbon. Then they and they will be out of the game to let the Elysee and Matignon govern by ordinances. Thus parliamentarism is put to death both by the electorate and by the deputies. Never has this democracy appeared more factitious. ---- The electoral sequence of Spring 2017 confirms this fundamental tendency: after the presidential election - " the only one that counts " - the population is completely disinterested in the National Assembly, for two reasons. ---- First of all, the deputies do not represent their voters. They have no precise mandate and are not subject to any scrutiny by voters, and they represent only themselves.

Secondly, to preserve their careers, they generally conform to the directives of the leaders of their parties. Thus the " frondeurs " of the PS confined themselves to platonic protests against the Valls government, and never assumed a vote against.

From this point of view, the deputies of the republic on the march (LRM) will go down even lower since, from the beginning, they and they will grant the Elysee and Matignon the power to govern by ordinances.

The Palais-Bourbon is consequently emptied of all importance by the electorate, which for the most part abstains, and by the deputies, who, scarcely elected, are obliterated.

The republican institutions are often only the facade of pasteboard of the real power: that of the capitalists and the market. Now, this facade is becoming more and more decayed.

It is time to overthrow this system and institute a new one, which will place the economy and politics in the hands of the population by the expropriation of capitalists and the self-management of all aspects of life.

We hope that the fight against the anti-social attacks that Macron is preparing with the Labor 2 law will advance this awareness of a necessary revolution.
