What Does It Mean to Strengthen Parliament?

Given the constitutional and political features of the Fifth Republic that are taken for granted (unless one challenges the “negative parliamentarianism” that characterizes it), the strengthening of Parliament can be pursued by combining the two main cleavages of the regime. One is the political distinction between the government/majority and the opposition ; the other is the institutional division between the exec- utive and legislative branches. The legislative function, which creates policies, will always be performed mainly by the majority under the authority of the government. On the other hand, the modern moni- toring and evaluation function belongs specifically to Parliament as an institution and not just to the opposition, and it requires innovative solutions. There should, therefore, be a rebalancing toward this function of the activity and operation of the two Chambers.
