French Government Accused Of Trying To Delay Elections.

There are some people who year to live under an oppressive global dictatorship, they delude themselves that they are part of the elite (in reality they are the modern equivalent of Stalin’s useful idiots)and think their interests are served by sucking up to authority.

Such people are always eager to repeat the establishment lie that everybody in Europe apart from we British and a few right wing extremist fringe parties are wildly enthusiastic about merging all the EU member states into a federal European superstate which would in turn be crushed under the U.S. jackboot.

It is not so of course; I’ll give links to the rise of anti EU feeling in Europe at the end but first here’s a story on how fearful the French government of Francois Hollande is of the anti – immigration Front National, the party currently topping opinion polls in France.

The Elysee Denies Considering A Change To Regional Elections

The Presidency of the Republic {of France] has denied rumours that President Hollande wishes to move the regional election from December to October, 2015 so the vote does no coincide with the annual climate conference at which the French government and EU leadership are likely to committ to measures hugely unpopular with voters. A further rumour, that to avoid a clasah of dates the elections will be held on another weekend in December has not been responded to.

Le Parisien Asked this morning (21 December, 2014) about a possible advance of the date of the regional elections, the entourage of Francois Hollande flatly denies any change in the electoral calendar. “It is totally false and unfounded. The law (on the creation of new regions,) which has been passed provides that elections will take place in December 2015, they will therefore take place in December 2015,” continues the Elysee.

Matignon, the First Minister’s office, also denied the information.

Therefore no question of changing the rules of the game as is implied in a “Sunday Journal” story which states it is the wish of the Head of State to advance the elections in October 2015, rather than let elections take place at the same time as the conference on climate. From 30 November to 13 December 2015, dozens of heads of state and government must indeed meet in Paris to find an agreement against global warming.

This change is “distressing” and “implausible”, commented Christian Jacob, president of the UMP in the National Assembly,on Sunday morning. which on I-Tele referred to the fact that a change of date to another month would require a new law.

If the regional elections are held in December, the precise date of the weekends during which the election will be held is not against still unknown. The schedule of departmental elections remains unchanged: they will take place on 22 and 29 March 2015.

Under the article Hocrap commented:

If I understand, for the left, delay will not be enough, it is better to cancel all elections for the next century if they still want to enjoy a bit of power.
(Si j’ai bien compris, pour la gauche, retarder ne sera pas suffisant, il faut mieux annuler toutes les élections pour le siècle à venir si ils veulent encore jouir un peu du pouvoir.)

Words which reflect the feelings of many French voters.

So is this an unfounded rumour or, more likely given the recent track record of Hollande and his government, have they been caught with their pants down again and are now having to back pedal furiously.

Either way the socialists are likely to get another hammering from parties of the right in the vote.
