The new group of the Ecology Democracy Solidarity and its former members LREM have claimed their independence on the occasion of the debate on the application of Stop-Covid in the national Assembly. They refuse the implementation.
Independence in independence, a member of this group of ten-seven deputies, however, swam against the current. This is Cédric Villani, who has defended the application designed to facilitate the fight against the channels of contamination of the coronavirus after having ” weighed the risks and benefits “.
A few minutes ago, this is the co-chair of the group, Paula Forteza who had placed the debate on the field of ethics, calling for “do not get carried away by the solutionnisme technology” and asking for a ” precautionary principle digital “. The mp has also proposed the creation of a ‘convention’ on the digital, the image of the one who is at work on the climate.
Paula Forteza has highlighted the technical risks are ” non-negligible “, but also on the non-provision of the entire code of the application in open source (as promised by the government), to justify a vote “against” Ecology Democracy Solidarity.
If the new group has drawn up almost unanimously against the application project Stop-Covid, it has not been the only one to put sand in the gears of government. We knew that this project creates dissension even within the presidential majority.
The mp LREM Sacha Houlié has brought the illustration, positioning itself against Stop-Covid, while not missing to point out the “freedom to vote” within their group. He also spoke of the “ethical debate” :
Pointing out the limits of the volunteer that may face social pressure, or professional, the risks of discrimination and stigmatization, the under-equipment of the elderly in smartphones, the deputy of the Vienna has especially considered that such an application “had no practical effect in all the countries where it has been used” to justify his vote and that of a minority of the elected representatives of the group LREM.
Conversely, the last-born groups of the national Assembly, Acting Together, established the previous day by seven members of parliament of The Republic in March, has stowed away in the camp of the three ministers attended to present and defend the application, namely Nicole Belloubet, Olivier Véran and Cedric O. In his intervention Laure de Laraudière spoke of ” many of the guarantees made by the government “, while asking for an impact study after the event.
The final vote
After four hours of debate, the application Stop-Covid has been validated by the mps with 338 votes in favour (most of the deputies LaREM, Modem, Act Together), 215 votes against and 21 abstentions.
