Cumul des mandats

For a party that officially opposes le cumul des mandats, Socialist deputies are awfully fond of the practice. 19 of them hold three additional mandates, 80 hold 2, and 202 hold 1.

I know, I know: babbling about le cumul des mandats is what one does when there's no real political news to discuss. But whaddayagonnado? It's the middle of August.

Not only "a party". Each of the Socialist candidates had to individually take the commitment to leave before September their other mandates, if elected in June. It is recalled here for example : http://nord-pas-de-calais.france3.fr/info/elections-2012/non-cumul-des-mandats--quelles-consequences--74559602.html , or here http://www.20minutes.fr/politique/962423-non-cumul-mandats-ps-plaide-l-avancee-democratique-supplementaire

I think 3 or 4 of the 301 did act accordingly to their commitment.

Well, it's August here too.
