While the health situation continues to deteriorate in Île de France and Hauts-de-France, the government decided after long hesitation to postpone the partial legislative elections which were to be held in early April in the two regions. A choice that annoys the opposition, also worried about the fate of the regional elections in June </p><div> <p>It was in the media that Danielle Simonnet learned of the postponement of the partial legislative assembly in Paris. A half-surprise for the candidate of La France insoumise (LFI) because the rumor had been running for a week, but the disorganization displayed annoys her.
« We learned after an interview with Anne Hidalgo on RTL that the elections have been postponed, she explains.At that time, we called the préfecture and discovered that the director of the prefecture’s electoral service was not even informed. We informed her. So we really see a huge mess. »
Amateurism, we add to the staff of the Socialist Party (PS). In the ranks of the Republicans (LR), a deputy goes so far as to mention ” the death of democracy “. For Faustine Maliar, LR candidate in the postponed poll in Pas-de-Calais, it is above all the regional elections that are threatened. “ I fear that the postponement of this by-legislative election will serve as a case law to allow the government to motivate its desire to postpone the departmental and regional elections, she says. Germany recently organized regional elections, legislative elections were held in Luxembourg. The health crisis cannot indefinitely cover democracy, which must now take back its rights. »
But the government has already announced it, its decision on the regional will depend on the report on the health situation that the Scientific Council must return this Sunday.
