France / National Assembly: Boris Vallaud elected head of the socialist group


AA / Paris / Ümit Dönmez
Deputy Boris Vallaud was elected, Thursday, president of the Socialist Party (PS) group in the French National Assembly.

The elected representative of the third constituency of Landes and spokesperson for his party, benefited from 26 votes against 4 for his competitor Guillaume Garot, deputy of the first constituency of Mayenne and former Minister Delegate for Agrifood.

Deputy Jérôme Guedj, winner on Sunday in the second round of legislative elections, against Amélie de Montchalin in the sixth constituency of Essonne, had withdrawn from the race, calling for a vote in favor of Boris Vallaud.

The latter replaces Valérie Rabault, the elected representative of the first constituency of Tarn-et-Garonne, who was considered too close to Carole Delga, herself close to the presidential majority.

Valérie Rabault had, however, refused to become Prime Minister after the presidential election, questioning the pension reform announced by President Emmanuel Macron.
