Law 23 of 2009 on Parliamentary Privileges

Posted on | November 27, 2009

France 24 reports on a new law on Parliamentary privileges passed by the Council of Representatives after two attempts by the Presidency Council to challenge the law by returning it to the Parliament. Under Article 138(Fifth)(C) of the Constitution after the Presidency Council returns a law for a second time, the Council of Representatives can achieve passage of the law without further challenge.
