Land law abolished in all overseas territories An idea from

The President of the Senate Gérard Larcher opened the door to the development of the abolition of land law.

On the move to Mayotte last weekend, Gérald Darmanin announced a constitutional revision intended to eliminate land law.And this, “before the end of summer,” he promised. While the archipelago is going through an unprecedented crisis, the government intends to stem the migration crisis thanks to this “radical decision”, as the Minister of the Interior himself described it. And to insist: “It will no longer be possible to become French if you are not yourself the child of French parents.”

“We have a duty to protect our compatriots” indicates Gérard Larcher

What if the end of land rights became widespread? An idea that is making headway in the mind of the President of the Senate, Gérard Larcher. The latter wished, Thursday February 15 do not “limit” this debate “only to Mayotte”. He notably cited the examples of Guyana and the island of Saint-Martin. LGérald Darmanin’s announcement is widely supported by the French, as evidenced by the latest Elabe poll carried out for BFMTV. In detail, 38% of those questioned say they are very favorable to this measure.

For Gérard Larcher, the abolition of land law “does not solve everything but it is an extremely strong signal” because “Mayotte is in a terrible situation” he declared this week on BFMTV. “We have a duty to protect our compatriots,” he continues. The latter also wanted to recall that the cases of Guyana and Saint-Martin had been addressed within the framework of the immigration law passed last December. A measure rejected by the Constitutional Council “for formal reasons” he explains.

“The reality of migratory phenomena today in Europe and in the world must lead us to re-examine the conditions for the exercise of land law and blood law” analyzes the President of the Senate. On the subject of Mayotte, Gérald Darmanin further highlighted the territory’s power of attraction for emigrants coming from the Comoros.
