The Minority Group: A New Concept between Law and Politics

Opposition or minority group? This choice was opened by the Senate at the time of the last constitutional revision which was adopted thanks to the contribution of future minority groups. Bolstered by this constitutional sanction, minority groups contribute to comforting par- liamentary pluralism, first of all in the Senate where the majority group does not hold an absolute majority of seats. This carries the risk, in the eyes of some, of complicating the deliberation process and of questioning the supremacy of the majority rule. Whether the groups belong to the majority or the opposition, they are able to assert their specificity or their autonomy in a context of parliamentary bipolarization. Is it possible to imagine a representative Parliament without one or several minority groups?
