François Bayrou, Election présidentielle 2012 - 090412
PARIS (Reuters) - a cohabitation after the legislative elections on 10 and 17 June would be "a disaster" for France, has estimated wednesday Francois Bayrou. The centrist leader, who has broken with the outgoing majority in voting for François Holland in the second round of the presidential election, would like to see a balance in the institutions that would make possible the presence in the National Assembly of elected capable to support the government or to oppose in function of the correctness of his actions - the "current central" that he called to his wishes. "The cohabitation would be a disaster", said the chairman of the Democratic Movement on RMC and BFM TV. Presidency and government supported by a parliamentary majority are the two keys, and "if ever the two keys are incompatible between them, nothing works", he added. "All decisions which are taken in the council of ministers have need of the signature of the president of the Republic, is it that you realize the risk of a blockage ? ", continued Francois Bayrou. "On the other hand, it must be a balance in the institutions of the country, and that is why we need to the National Assembly of voices that are not opponents of systematic ( ... ) but who are there to say 'we are responsible, that is to say, if you take the right decisions, we will vote for' ." "My deep conviction, is that these elections, we may earn them. Each day that passes, each new movement, confirm this position", he said at a press conference. "I intend for these legislative elections ensure that there was a cohabitation to prevent the implementation of a program which I believe harmful for the country", stressed Herve Morin.
