” Problem is huge “
If the Constitution does not provide for the voting of the assemblies on the texts submitted to a referendum, but a simple debate, the manoeuvre would, however, be risky.

The family reunion, which involved approximately 12 000 people in 2015 in France, is not a law ” automatic “. The alien making the application must reside for at least eighteen months legally in France and have including a card of temporary residence of at least one year, a resident card or a resident card, long-term of the european Union of ten years. It must also justify the resources.
” complicated Period “
about the fight against terrorism, Mr. Sarkozy said register ” false “ in the face of the assertion a few hours before François Hollande, that the whole French criminal was ” full “ in the face of terrorism.
” I’ll ask the question “do you agree that the Security minister is able to decide the implementation of administrative detention of plugged-in S the most dangerous ?” “, has announced that the former head of State, stating that it provided a ” the intervention of the judge a posteriori. The Council of State had rejected such a hypothesis by December 2015 : ” It is not possible to authorize by law, outside of any criminal proceedings, the retention, drop-in centres provided for this purpose, people have become radicalized, with indexes of dangerousness and known as such by the police, without, however, having already been the subject of a conviction for acts of terrorism. “The establishment of the desired extent by Nicolas Sarkozy would violate also the european law.
