“We are on a drift of this majority”

Aren’t you ashamed, Mr. Latombe?”launched in the hemicycle the ecologist deputy Jérémie Iordanoff. “I am scandalized. We are on a drift of this majority which no longer knows where it is going. I am worried about the rest of this mandate. Pull yourself together”he added.
