End of soil law in Mayotte: the far right and the right welcome the measure, the left “worried”

While Gérald Darmanin announced, on Sunday February 11 in Mayotte, a constitutional revision intended to eliminate land rights in the Indian Ocean archipelago, political reactions are increasing.

The far right welcomed this announcement, while believing that it should not be confined to Mayotte. “Why don’t all French people deserve what the Mahorais deserve? Land rights must be abolished throughout the national territory! », Exclaimed on the social network X the president of the Reconquête! party, Eric Zemmour.

Invited on BFM-TV, Marion Maréchal was delighted on measure “to the entire French territory”. “What the Mahorais are experiencing today, the metropolis will experience in a few years! », writes the granddaughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen, who will lead the list of the Reconquest party! for the June 2024 European election.

On CNews, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, president of Debout la France, judged that “the situation in Mayotte is not only linked to land law, it is linked to the resignation of the State on our borders, to the presence of pro-migrant associations financed by the State", demanding "a referendum on the end of land rights for all of France".

" Finally ! », rejoice the Republicans

Welcoming “strong announcements”, the Les Républicains (LR) deputy for Mayotte Mansour Kamardine requested that the abolition of land rights in Mayotte be included in the draft constitutional law on New Caledonia, the examination of which will begin this month next in Parliament.

" FINALLY ! On the island, 50% of the inhabitants are foreigners. Our proposed constitutional law has provided for this for a year,” rejoiced the president of the Republicans, Eric Ciotti, thanking Mr. Kamardine for “his work for the Mahorais.”

“We had tightened the land law during the “immigration” law when the government had not planned it and of course the Constitutional Council censored it. In short, as soon as a law has been promulgated, new measures are already needed! This run-of-the-mill policy is powerless to really resolve the problems,” reacted Bruno Retailleau, president of the LR group in the Senate.

For the left, it is “the end of the right of the ground”

On the left, the Socialist Party (PS) will oppose this revision of the Constitution, announced the boss of its deputies, Boris Vallaud, on France 3. “Will the constitutional revision of land law change whatever is it the situation in Mayotte? “, he asked. “I don't believe it, that's why I am not in favor of revising the land law in Mayotte, which is already under the influence of a legal regime which is much more severe for obtaining French nationality than all the rest of France,” he stressed. “Soil rights are not negotiable,” he insisted.

The environmentalist deputy Aurélien Taché denounced on BFM-TV “the door is open to the end of land rights in our country”. “Why would a common law department of the French Republic have a different law applied to it than the other departments? I'm worried about the Pandora's box this may open; If Marine Le Pen is elected, she will abolish soil law,” he lamented on X.

“Darmanin announces the end of land rights in Mayotte, and the far right applauds this new ideological victory. After breaking the taboo of national preference, Macronie attacks the very concept of nationality, the foundation of the Republic. And they still dare to run in the jump-off? », protested MEP Manon Aubry, head of the list of La France insoumise in the European elections.

The environmentalist MEP, head of the list of Ecologists for the Europeans, Marie Toussaint estimated for her part that “ending land rights in Mayotte will not resolve the difficulties of the territory, but it will damage our Republic. The demolition of our values ​​by a President of the Republic who is ahead of the far right is a terrible setback. »
