“No one dithered to say that Adrien Quatennens should be put on hold”assured in front of the press the deputy LFI Clémentine Autain, questioned on the fact that Jean-Luc Mélenchon had reiterated his “trust” to the young MP, sparking internal criticism.

To manage cases of gender-based violence, “we are trying to put mechanisms in place, it is not perfect”admitted the deputy, considering it necessary “to work further on these issues and perhaps in a transpartisan way”. The member for Seine-Saint-Denis, however, proved that it was necessary to recognize the “complexity” such situations, which will escape the difficulty of respecting the presumption of innocence of the defendants, of taking into account the on the human level of dealing with the case of “comrades” or even respect for the victims.

“Yes, we assume that we are fumbling, that it is a difficult question”, declared LFI MP Danièle Obono. “We assume to have failures, not to have a perfect protocol.”

The elected representative of the 17th district of Paris stressed that the LFI deputies were going to attend a training “obligatory” on sexist and sexual violence during their parliamentary days scheduled for Thursday and Friday to prepare for the return to parliament.
