Sophie Binet regretted the end of land law announced on Sunday by Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin in Mayotte.
“It sets in stone the fact that the Constitution does not apply to Mayotte,” she declared in “Hello, morning show!” on TF1.
The general secretary of the CGT regrets the fact that “today Mayotte is a territory outside common law on all the rules”.
Traveling to Mayotte on Sunday, Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin announced a constitutional revision to remove land rights on the Indian Ocean island. A decision denounced by the general secretary of the CGT Sophie Binet, guest this Monday, February 12 of “Hello, morning show!” on TF1. “It sets in stone the fact that the Constitution does not apply to Mayotte, whereas what the Mahorais need is to be treated as full French people, particularly in matters of social law”she said.
There is a need to apply the principles of republican equality.”
But while half of the population living on the island is foreign, shouldn’t different rules be applied there, the trade unionist was asked? “The rules are already different since land law already applies in a more restrictive way, the rules on migration are already more restrictive and that does not discourage people from coming to Mayotte”she replied.
“The issue is common law, today Mayotte is a territory outside common law on all rules, particularly on social law. I remind you that 75% of the population lives below the poverty line and it is not by chance, it is because the Mahorais minimum wage is 25% below the French minimum wage, that the Mahorais RSA is 50% below the French RSA”she recalled, rightly. “There is a need to apply the principles of republican equality”estimated Sophie Binet.
