The time of the explanations. After three months of fighting the epidemic of Covid-19, the executive is preparing to meet with his management of the crisis before Parliament. The national Assembly was installed Wednesday, 3 June, his commission of inquiry, which should start its work within two weeks ; the Senate account to use at the end of the month. Expected by the opposition, and dreaded by the macronistes, these two series of investigations have the same objective : to analyze the chain of responsibilities and to highlight any "flaws".● A fifty elected to work for six months to "make the light"
A large-scale operation is in the offing. For six months, fifty parliamentarians from all the political groups will carry out their investigation, thirty deputies, of the one part, and twenty other senators, of the other part. Protective masks, drug testing, and situation in the long-term care facilities, health care system, policy déconfinement... The"before" "during" and"after"-a health crisis will be auscultated, up to the publication of a report by commission.read also : Commission of inquiry: the masks in the heart of the debates
the origin of the working group created in the national Assembly, the deputies of The Republican (LR) promise to "make the light" on "failures" at the top of the State. They will occupy the key positions of the rapporteur (mp LR Éric Ciotti) and vice-president (the leader of the deputies LR, Damien Abad) of the commission. The chair is Brigitte Bourguignon, elected from the majority group, The Republic in market (LREM). For its part, the Senate has not yet proceeded to the composition of its working group.● Convocations, controls : wide powers
In a commission of inquiry, the parliamentarians exert their right of control by significant powers of investigation. Among these prerogatives are the possibilities :
- the launch of hangouts , which are mandatory under penalty of two years imprisonment and 7500 euro fine - the right to silence enshrined in the criminal law does not exist before the parliamentary committees of inquiry ;
- to conduct of hearings under oath - the summoned to swear to tell "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth", a lie is punishable by up to five years of prison and 75.000 € of fine.
- to control of documents "on room and on-the-spot" - for example the "good of the order and delivery of masks," spoke the leader of the LR, Damien Abad ;
- the submit information the ministry of Justice ;
- to seize the floor .
These powers are wider than those of the fact-finding mission launched in early April by the president of the national Assembly, Richard Ferrand. But they are limited by the principle of separation of powers : impossible to examine the facts that gave rise to lawsuits, while more than seventy complaints have been filed against members of the government for their management of the crisis. It is necessary to evaluate the "responsibility policy", not the "judicial responsibility", insist the LR, eager not to transform the commission into a "people's court".● The (ex-)ministers obliged to meet, perhaps in front of the cameras
Senior government officials and policy makers need to be summoned to appear before the deputies and senators. May need to explain to the national Assembly, the prime minister, Édouard Philippe, the minister of Health, Olivier Véran, and some of its predecessors, as Xavier Bertrand, Roselyne Bachelot, Marisol Touraine and Agnes Buzyn. So as not to interfere with the second round of the municipal elections, scheduled on June 28, Édouard Philippe and Agnès Buzyn, candidates for the le Havre and Paris, should not be heard before July.read also : Lubrizol, attack of the Prefecture...

A calendar of hearings "very tight" is desired by the vice-president of the commission, Damien Abad, to release "some lessons learned" by the end of July, before the resumption of work in September. These questions and answers will be televised : the choice of public hearings or behind closed doors depends on the responsible of the working group. In the summer of 2018, the cable-news channels had broadcast the replicas of Alexander Benalla to the senators, followed by nearly 700,000 viewers.
