Changes in membership of the National Assembly
Separation of powers in France means that if an MP is appointed to government, he or she has one month to decide whether to remain in government or to remain as an MP. If they choose to remain in government, they are replaced by a suppléant. Under French electoral procedure, voters elect both an MP and a suppléant to replace the MP upon appointment to government. French law states that the President must name the suppléant to the National Assembly if the minister wishes to remain in government.
