The mucul of pandats. No, multiple directorships. Nothing to see. Unlike pandas, dippers, the cumulistes, are not endangered. Nothing prohibits or so little .
The cumulonimbus cloud is not a
Benoît Hamon (PS) may regret. He who says on Twitter he had not had a good Sunday also has just lost his remuneration. It might well, if in fact confirms what he had said during the campaign, turn to the private as he had done before MEP in the previous legislature. The fall is often hard for the non-elect, and especially the non-elected. The best protection against these avatars of democracy is the dual mandate. This is the meaning of this article to try to see things more clearly from the MEPs elected contingent in France on Sunday, June 7 there. In my view, the cumulonimbus , this n uage accumulation darkens representativeness. The question is not here talking accumulated income (which is capped anyway), an interesting topic , but schedule compared to the effectiveness of our elected officials. To optimize the work of data collection, I am also interested in the age and sex of MEPs. The set of tables is available here in Excel format or here in PDF format.
Scrub the parliament
French MEPs are not considered particularly present in the European parliament. These are not the only ones. In their defense, they often indicate that the job of an MEP is not just to sit on sessions. Be. But it does not consist drying sessions. No method of accounting investigation can not fully satisfy the quality criteria of the presence of an MEP. Nevertheless, the results are altogether edifying as can be read here .
The idea of this article is to see if the dual mandate can be a barrier to the exercise of its function MEP. It is also to show if there are differences between different political movements from the point of view of presenting their candidates. If I have my own political ideas (my beliefs lead me to the center), I went facts to derive an a posteriori analysis. If errors appear in the tables, thank you so stated. Even if you think your statement can be relevant to be shared with the readers of this article. I invite you to do so directly to my email address firstname.lastname@example.org or via the comments below this post.
While perfect equality is required to validate the filing of his list, no special requirement is then to political parties to present as many women as men in top of the list. In addition it is the voters who choose to provide that voice. The results are therefore to be considered with these parameters in mind. Nevertheless. There are 4 French MEPs from more than MEPs. 52.8% against 47.2%. Both parties send Brussels more women than men: Modem (66%) and the Greens (57%). Among the "major parties", the PS is the worst student in the class with only 42% of MEPs.
The average age of the French MEP is 53 years and 7 months. It is consistent with the average age of the French deputy.
The average age of the outgoing MEP t was 58 years. This is the average age qu'auront our new MEPs in 2014 (as a parliamentarian or not they will take one more year each year until the end of their mandate). No rejuvenation European French political class. The situation is different in different movements. If Jean-Marie Le Pen, octogenarian, raises the average of his party, other political movements are consistent with the global average except the Greens with a little less than an average age of 50. The youngest being Damien Abad (UMP-NC) and 29 years. Should push a little further the question, but it is questionable influence that age can have on policy thinking when you're an elected fifties and one is elected in their fifties or more given the low turnout of young people in these elections.
37 French MEP MEPs combine their function with another term, or 51% of dippers. Sometimes with the simple function of councilor, "for the local anchor", sometimes with important executive functions (President of the General Council, vice president of local authorities ...).
The only movement to be within half cumulard is the environmental movement with 14%, two of its 14 MEPs combine their duties with other functions. They both are in the district of southeast.
Among government parties, the UMP is in the lead with 2/3 of its MEPs who accumulate, followed by the PS with 57%.
For environmentalists, the reason lies in the recency of their organization, federation of interests and environmentalists figures, so the youth policy of their candidates. But also a line of thought that rejects the idea of cumulation "stop consumerism mandates", the non-presentation of the outgoing MEP Onesta , recognized by his peers for his work MEP is the instance.
It is the opposite for the UMP and the PS who preferred due?, have local figures , to be loaded locomotives list. It also gives MEPs that are already imagine schedules and overloaded agenda. Time will tell if these Stakhanovists representation have time to lay the reports involved in their duties. From outgoing MEPs is Philippe Morillon (UDF) which was the worker with 22 reports parliamentarians to his credit.
I took the results of the European elections on Sunday, April 7 on the eight French constituencies.
Assignment. The elect are allocated to parties or movements that led the campaign. So we will not see include the New Center recorded under UMP label, ditto for conservationists including many elected representatives are not members of the Greens or the Left Front, where no distinction is made according to their membership or non- the party of Jean-Luc Mélenchon or the French Communist Party.
Age. Age is recognized based on the election year minus year of birth. Is for example a person born in 1973, from 2009 to 1973 = 36 years. Even if that person was born after June 7 This is for practical reasons to not have to search the precise date of birth, without the Chinese zodiac sign or ascendant, or the positions of the moon at the time of birth.
Mandate. Going through the biographies of the candidates were recognized mandates they hold in the day of the election. These mandates are classified as executive mandate is when the elected Parliament, mayor, deputy mayor, vice-president of the General Council, the Regional Council of Urban Community. I do not count the important functions within a political party or auxiliary functions dependent on their mother money (Example: Chairman of the Board of directors of a hospital for a big-city mayor). Other mandates, Councillor type are not classified as executive mandate. The case is especially for Paris where advisors Paris councilors are also due to the dual status of this community.
I considered Michel Barnier, Rachida Dati and Brice Hortefeux, ministers at the relevant time, as resigning or their position of Minister (Michel Barnier and Rachida Dati in the next reshuffle) or their function as MEP ( Brice Hortefeux ) . In the latter case, I took the person who followed in the order listed. Jean-François Kahn, he had said during the campaign that he would resign from his post if the list was not elected two. Duly noted. It also remains to be seen what will Mélenchon, Senator and MEP, two incompatible functions according to law.
Within weeks or months, elected will eventually resign their mandate as an MEP or some of their local functions or otherwise acquire others, partly because of regional and local elections of 2010, or the opportunity to local by-elections. The data tables provided will be amended accordingly.
Two newly elected will represent France if the Lisbon Treaty enters into force. Indeed, France will have 74 seats in the European Parliament by the Treaty and the recent elections have provided 72. The choice should return to the French parliament to decide on the identity of the two additional representatives should not upset or political balances or balances in terms of distribution by sex, age and accumulation.
It would be good to look at these results in terms of the previous term and to compare them with those of our neighbors to determine specific trends French representation. Concerning the French parliament, an investigation by the New York Times showed that 85% of French parliamentarians had multiple functions with another elective office against 20% for comparable democracies such as Italy, Germany and Britain. From there to explain absenteeism parliamentary ...
