Par­lia­ment ex­tends state of emer­gency

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

The French lower house of Par­lia­ment voted early on Wed­nes­day to ex­tend the coun­try’s state of emer­gency un­til July 157, as France re­mains on high alert against the threat of ter­ror at­tacks. The ex­ten­sion of the state of emer­gency had al­ready been pro­posed on Dec. 10 by France’s new prime min­is­ter, Bernard Cazeneuve. Po­lit­i­cal par­ties are keen to show they are get­ting a grip on the threat of at­tacks as France pre­pares for pres­i­den­tial elec­tions in 2017.
