How does the National Assembly work? 577 deputies are elected locally but make the law for everyone
Along with the Senate, the National Assembly is one of the two elected chambers that make up parliament responsible for passing laws. These laws can be proposed by the government before being discussed and voted on by parliament, or proposed by the parliamentarians themselves.
The Assembly has 577 representatives elected by direct universal voting of the legislative constituency. Val-de-Marne, for example, has 11 constituencies. Representatives are therefore elected locally even if they strive to interpret the law from a national perspective.

1 ° Health
Support for carers at two major hospitals in the district (the Mondor hospital and the intercommunal hospital center of Créteil) against the closure of posts and services.

2 ° Education
An emergency plan for a public school in Val-de-Marne with a specific catch-up in the ways intended for replacements. On average today, 10% of absent teachers are not replaced in the department.

3 ° Housing
We want to implement the SRU law that establishes a minimum percentage of 25% social housing, specifically in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés.

4 ° Public water
We want to make water a common good and want the towns in our jurisdiction to combine a public service with the distribution of drinking water.

5 ° Transportation
In collaboration with the town hall of Bonneuil-sur-Marne, we fully support a multimodal transportation development project to efficiently link the Min of Rungis to the port of Bonneuil by relying on existing structures.

Among the program proposals of your political movement, which, very briefly, are the five proposals that you think have priority? Is it possible you have a personal nuance to take with it, which could be the subject of changes?

1 ° salary
Firstly because we are in a situation of social emergency in the face of rising prices, the minimum wage at € 1,500 net and the blocking of the price of basic necessities.

2 ° Retreat
The right to retirement at age 60 after 40 annuity, so that young people can get a job faster and older people can enjoy their next life in good health. The establishment of genuine wage equality between men and women will alone make it possible to finance this right.

3 ° Ecology
The ecological bifurcation that goes through a planning policy. This, from a budget point of view, will be central to our mandate as it requires 200 billion euros, both for the comprehensive development of renewable energies, of which Emmanuel Macron’s five-year term is very late on schedule, and for a renovation of unsanitary housing and thermal sieves (responsible for 25% of greenhouse gas emissions) or for the development of healthy farmer agriculture.

4 ° Public services
An emergency plan for the school and the hospital. At the school, it requires the immediate recruitment of thousands of additional young teachers to compensate for the current massive decrease in the number of candidates for competitions (especially, in the 1st degree, in the academies of the Paris region) and a multi -year recruitment of at least 60,000 positions requiring a 30% increase in teachers ’salaries, if we do not want public schools to experience the situation of collapse that our public hospitals are experiencing: in our jurisdiction, many struggles against at the closing of classes but also of beds and services at the Mondor hospital or at the CHIC de Créteil testifies to this. In general, we will rebuild a high-quality public service as close as possible to the people, in all other areas necessary for their needs: health, education, transportation, water, electricity, etc.

5 ° Institutions
Giving the floor back to the people, allowing them to decide through a more direct democracy, especially through the establishment of the Citizens ’Initiative Referendum (RIC) and moving towards the 6th Republic through the Constituent Assembly meeting , which remains our goal.

Which committee do you want to chair? The Education Committee but also the External Relations Committee. Anyone who has traveled outside of Europe knows how diverse and similar people and cultures are. Of course, I am attached to peace and to the rights of the people to self -determination, so completely against the imperialist policies that are confusing all countries. This political instability, combined with neoliberal policies and global warming, further oppresses poor countries and causes cascading effects, driving populations into political or economic exile. We should also know that, if we are the 6th richest country in the world, the international influence of France is largely cultural and moral: we are the country of the Great Revolution and the first Republic in the world, the country of deprivation of privileges and Human Rights, a country with great cultural influence. We are also the cradle of the Francophonie, which is the 5th most used language in the world and continues to grow strongly, contrary to many distinctions. What is the current policy of France in this area? It’s even hard to know that this dimension is completely absent in the Macronist “start-up nation”.

How does the National Assembly work? Commissions
To work on all topics, the National Assembly relies on thematic standing committees into which representatives are divided. So they met in committee to work on the texts before defending them on the hemicycle. There are currently 8 standing committees: cultural affairs and education, economic affairs, foreign affairs, social affairs, national defense and armed forces, sustainable development and regional planning, finance and law. In each committee, political groups have a number of seats proportional to their numerical representation. The remaining seats are allocated to unregistered elected representatives. A representative will therefore not necessarily sit on the commission of his choice.

If there was only one subject you could wear during your mandate? Which is it and how will you defend it?

You will understand that the first subject close to my heart, as a teacher, is to restore our public and secular school to the heart of our Republic: historically, this has even been the element of its foundation. In France, without public schools up to the challenge, the whole society is falling apart.


How do you intend to report your parliamentary action to the citizens of your constituency and take into account their reactions? I will have a permanent and I will hold meetings throughout the constituency to inform residents and report on my mandate. I also plan to open a website. Finally, I want to be with the local players so they can get me out of the issues.
