The decree was published on Sunday June 26 in the Official Journal. Yaël Braun-Pivet, who had been overseas minister for a month, left the government to become president of the National Assembly on Tuesday. “The functions of Mrs. Yaël Braun-Pivet are terminated” and “the functions of Minister for Overseas Territories are exercised by the Prime Minister”, stipulates this decree taken Saturday by Emmanuel Macron on the proposal of Elisabeth Borne.
For the first time in France, a woman should have access to the perch, to the National Assembly. Yaël Braun-Pivet will succeed Richard Ferrand (LREM), a close friend of Emmanuel Macron defeated in the second round of the legislative elections. All the deputies will vote on Tuesday afternoon during a secret ballot vote at the podium.
Still a novice in politics in 2017
The former president of the Assembly’s Law Commission and deputy for Yvelines, still a novice in politics in 2017, was elected candidate for the perch on Wednesday by the deputies of the presidential majority.
Also present are Annie Genevard (LR), ex-vice-president LR of the Assembly, the elected RN Sébastien Chenu, and there will certainly be a candidate from the union of the left.
If the absolute majority of the votes cast has not been obtained in the first two rounds of the ballot, the relative majority is sufficient in the third round, which should guarantee the election of Yaël Braun-Pivet, barring an accident.
