The mucul of pandats. No, the dual mandate. 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) is regrettable. He who says on Twitter he had not had a good Sunday, also has lost his remuneration. It may well, in fact it confirms what he had said during the campaign, turning 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 more clearly from the MEPs elected contingent in France Sunday, June 7 there. In my view, the CB , this n uage accumulation , dark representativeness. The question here is not about the accumulation of 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. They are not alone. In their defense, they often indicate that the job of an MEP is not just to sit in the sessions. Whatsoever. But it does not consist in dry sessions. No method of accounting investigation can not fully satisfy the quality criteria of the presence of an MEP. Nevertheless, the results are altogether inspiring as can be read here .
The idea of this article is to see if the multiple directorships can be a barrier to the exercise of its function as an MEP. It is also to show whether there are differences between the various political movements in terms of the presentation of their candidates. If I have my own political ideas (my beliefs lead me to the center), I went facts to draw a post hoc analysis. If errors in the tables, thank you so stated. Similarly, if you think about you may be relevant to be shared with the readers of this article. I invite you to do so directly to my email address email@example.com or via the comments below this post.
Breakdown by sex.
While perfect equality is required to validate the filing of the list, no special requirement is then to political parties to present as many women as men in the list. In addition it is the voters who choose to make their voices. The results are therefore to be considered with these parameters in mind. Nevertheless. There are four French MEPs from more than MEPs. 52.8% against 47.2%. Brussels two parties send 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 may have on political thought when we elected a fifties and one is elected in their fifties or more given the low turnout of young people in these elections.
37 of the French MEPs MEP combine their function with another term, or 51% of dippers. Sometimes the simple function of councilor, "to the local anchor", sometimes with important executive functions (President of the General Council, vice president of local authorities ...).
The only movement to be below half of pluralist is the environmental movement with 14%, two of its 14 MEPs combine their duties with other duties. They both are in the district of south-east.
Among government parties, the UMP is leading with 2/3 of its MEPs who accumulate, followed with 57% PS.
For environmentalists, the reason lies in the recency of their organization, a federation of environmental interests and figures, so the youth policy of their candidates. But also a line of thought which rejects the idea of cumulation, "stop the hyper mandates", the non-presentation of the outgoing MEP Onesta , recognized by his peers for his work in the European Parliament is the instance.
This is contrary to 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 will have time to lay the reports involved in their duties. From outgoing MEPs is Philippe Morillon (UDF), which was the hardest working relationships with 22 MPs 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 the figure recorded in the New Center UMP label, ditto for environmentalists including many elected officials are not members of the Greens or the Left Front, where no distinction is made according to whether they belong the party of Jean-Luc Mélenchon or the French Communist Party.
Age. Age is recognized based on the election year minus year of birth. Consider 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 for the exact date of birth, not the Chinese zodiac sign or the 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 terms are listed in the executive office when Parliament is elected Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Vice-President of the General Council, Regional Council of Urban Community. I do not consider the important functions within a political party or associated functions dependent on their mother's money (Example: President of the Board of a hospital for a big-city mayor). The other functions, Councillor type are not classified as executive mandate. The case is especially for Paris where advisers Paris councilors are also due to the dual status of the community.
I considered Michel Barnier, Rachida Dati and Brice Hortefeux, Minister at the time of the facts, or have resigned their position of Minister (Michel Barnier and Rachida Dati in the next revision) or their function as MEP ( Brice Hortefeux ) . In this case, I took the one that 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.
In the weeks and months ahead, politicians will eventually resign their mandate as an MEP or some of their local functions or otherwise acquire others, mainly due to regional and local elections of 2010, or the opportunity to partial local elections. The data tables provided will be modified 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 be left to the French parliament to decide the identity of two additional representatives should not upset nor the political balance, or the balance 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 identify specific trends in French representation. Concerning the French parliament, an investigation of the New York Times showed that 85% of French parliamentarians had multiple duties with another elective office against 20% for comparable democracies such as Italy, Germany and Britain. From there to explain absenteeism parliamentary ...
