the National Assembly adopts the bill in new reading

Back in the National Assembly, the controversial bill transforming the health pass into a vaccine pass was adopted on the night of Friday January 14 to Saturday January 15, at 4 a.m. After the resounding failure of a compromise with the Senate, where the text had been significantly modified, and new bitter discussions started on Friday at 3 p.m. in an electric Palais-Bourbon, the deputies validated the bill strengthening the tools for managing the health crisis with 185 votes for, 69 against, and 8 abstentions.

This latest version of the bill is close to the one passed last week at first reading, but with some changes, sometimes inspired by the right-dominated Senate review. Thus the vaccination pass will no longer apply to adolescents between 12 and 16 years old, who are still subject to the health pass.

« Identity Match Verification » with the pass, reinforcement of sanctions against false passes, possibility of making access to political meetings subject to the presentation of a health or vaccination pass… The debates stumbled on the same provisions as in first reading, without the government and majority change course.

The opponents of the text did not disarm, like the elected representatives of La France insoumise (LFI) who defended, in vain, a motion of rejection beforehand against a text of  » constraint «  and scrapped on each of the amendments, multiplying the scratches against the majority and the executive, with the key to regular rises in tension, in particular during the speeches of Ugo Bernalicis.

Final adoption expected on Sunday

Accused of « political maneuver » with this text and the failure of the joint committee (CMP), the deputies La République en Marche (LRM) and their allies have put forward their  » responsibility «  and underlined the divisions at Les Républicains (LR) based on the votes. The LR group voted overwhelmingly in favor of the bill but is divided on the text with 26 votes for, 14 against and 7 abstentions. The left largely voted against, including the socialist group (9 against and 3 for). Far-right MPs also opposed the bill, with the exception of Emmanuelle Ménard.

Some parliamentary groups have let it be known that they plan to seize the Constitutional Council.

The text will again pass before the senators on Saturday. The majority hope for its final adoption on Sunday, and for implementation next week, said Adrien Taquet, Secretary of State to the Minister of Health.
