LFI deputy Ugo Bernalicis deprived of half of his compensation after an altercation in the law committee

The “rebellious” deputy Ugo Bernalicis will be inflicted with an increased financial sanction, Wednesday December 13 in the National Assembly, for having caused a scandal at the end of November in the law committee: the deprivation of half of his parliamentary allowance for a month, or 2,953.68 euros.

The office of the Assembly, its highest collegial body, took this decision, a “simple censorship”, which must be formally approved in the Hemicycle in the afternoon, according to parliamentary sources.

While waiting for this office meeting, the President of the Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, had already pronounced on December 1 “a call to order with entry in the minutes”: “the deprivation for a month of a quarter of his parliamentary compensation, i.e. 1,476.84 euros.” The office doubled the financial sanction, without going so far as to exclude the MP for fifteen days.

On November 30, standing and thundering, the deputy from the North called for an interruption of the debates to allow the elected representatives of the law committee, busy with the immigration bill, to go to the Hemicycle. The reason ? A text carried by La France insoumise (LFI), registered as part of their reserved day and which had previously passed before the law commission, was currently being examined. The president of the law committee, Sacha Houlié (Renaissance), replied that a suspension would come later.

" What is this ? », “intolerable” had stormed Mr. Bernalicis, who had also requested sanctions against Sacha Houlié. The scene had plunged the commission into a rare cacophony, between noisy and invective questions from deputies, some on the left not hiding their embarrassment a posteriori.
