Migaud to the Cour des Comptes

Didier Migaud, a Socialist who headed the parliamentary finance committee, has been named to replace Philippe Séguin at the Cour des Comptes. L'ouverture ain't what it used to be. Migaud has been discreet in his parliamentary role, which was initially touted as an important check on the presidency and enhancement of parliamentary power. Perhaps he will be a little less discreet in his new position, following his predecessor's example (or perhaps not). Who will replace Migaud as chair of the parliamentary committee, a post reserved for the opposition, remains to be decided.

rois députés socialistes sont candidats à la présidence de la commission des Finances de l'Assemblée en remplacement de Didier Migaud (PS), nommé mardi premier président de la Cour des comptes par Nicolas Sarkozy.
Jérôme Cahuzac, Jean-Pierre Balligand et Dominique Baert ont déposé leur candidature mardi soir dans les délais prévus, a-t-on appris au groupe socialiste, radical et citoyen (SRC).
