The chairman of the session, David Habib, was forced to make a new reminder in the face of the hubbub emitted by the deputies.

The atmosphere is electric in the National Assembly, during the debates on the health pass. “You do not have the right to say what you said (…) Mrs Wonner, I lost my brother, a doctor, from the Covid”, took the deputy Philippe Vigier by turning to Martine Wonner, Wednesday July 21. A little earlier la non-registered member, already at the heart of a controversy in recent days, had raised the case of a certain “madame S.”, suffering from cancer, who could no longer access his hospital with the addition of the health pass. “It’s wrong”, shout several deputies.

“We cannot misinform even within this hemicycle. Really, I tell you, Madam MP, here we do not misinform”, had then reacted Brigitte Bourguignon, Minister for Autonomy. “On access to the hospital, in the event of care scheduled in advance, the person has time to take a test, and in an emergency, there is no need for a pass”, she had specified.

The deputy LR Philipe Gosselin asked after the hanging a suspension of the session to calm everyone. The chairman of the session, David Habib, has also been forced to make a new reminder in the face of the hubbub emitted by the deputies: “Dear colleagues, I remind you that this meeting is televised. We have both to offer a better spectacle of democracy.”
