27 July 2017

President Emmanuel Macron‘s “La République En Marche” party is having its first teething problems, as it transitions from a grassroots movement to France’s most powerful political organisation. Its members are being asked to vote on “statutes”, the written rules which would determine the party’s leadership structure. The vote was supposed to be a formality, but it’s causing tensions among members who want more of a say in the party’s future. Claire Paccalin-Williams and Karina Chabour report.

Translated from Dutch daily De Volkskrant today:

MP of Macron‘s party injures socialist politician into hospital

A member of the Macron party La République and Marche has been charged because he has beaten a socialist politician with his scooter helmet into hospital. The socialist got into a coma, had to be operated and still has trouble talking, says his lawyer.

It is a known risk for new parties like [Macron‘s] La République and Marche: attracting successful applicants and candidates who do not turn out to have bad behavior. Half of their group in the National Assembly consists of ‘civic politicians’ without political experience. But so far, they are mainly in the news because of their amateurism and lack of knowledge of parliamentary procedures.

The real scandals are caused by politicians who have switched from the socialists to the Macron party. Against their caucus’ Vice President Richard Ferrand there is court inquiry into conflicts of interest in a real estate transaction for his former employer, an insurance corporation.
