POLITICS – A period of purgatory, an internship and a return. This is the formula chosen by rebellious France to manage the Adrien Quatennens case, sentenced this Tuesday, December 13 to four months in prison suspended for domestic violence. This while the latter excludes any resignation from his mandate as deputy, as he announced to The voice of the North in his first speech on this case.
The decision of the Insoumis is considered too lenient by the other groups of the NUPES, who believe that the deputy from the North is no longer worthy of sitting at the Palais Bourbon. » For environmentalists, an elected official convicted of gender-based and sexual violence must resign. This doctrine must apply everywhere, for all “, for example declared the president of the EELV group to the Assembly, Cyrielle Chatelain.
In the month of May, however, rebellious France shared this line. At that time, the LFI troops protested against the candidacy of Jérôme Peyrat. Ex-political adviser to LREM, the mayor of La Roque-Gageac in Périgord was dragging a conviction for domestic violence.
A case for which he was sentenced to a suspended fine of 3,000 euros, for facts which had resulted in 14 days of total incapacity for work (ITT) on his ex-companion. However, at that time, many personalities from rebellious France rose up against this candidacy, which had caused a controversy because of the hazardous justifications of Stanislas Guérini, then boss of LREM.
Indignation and petition
» LREM, when the perpetrators of violence are not convicted: presumption of innocence! LREM, when the perpetrators of violence are convicted: he is an honest man! What a shame. What a shipwreck “, tweeted at the time the president of the LFI group in the National Assembly Mathilde Panot. Other examples below with Bastien Lachaud or Clémence Guetté.

Today LFI deputy for the 2nd constituency of Loire-Atlantique, Andy Kerbrat had meanwhile signed a petition asking Emmanuel Macron to withdraw the nomination from Jérôme Peyrat.
When, faced with the outcry, the Macronist candidate had decided to throw in the towel, the deputy for Seine-Saint-Denis Clémentine Autain delivered on Twitter her analysis of this affair. » It is therefore the external pressure, and not the will of the interior of LREM, which made it possible to avoid the candidacy for the legislative elections of a man convicted of domestic violence. », she wrote.
A disqualification from the political scene for acts of domestic violence that rebellious France does not apply today to Adrien Quatennens, since his group decided that he could return after four months and on the condition » to follow an accountability course on violence against women with feminist associations « .
