French lawmaker from The Republicans party Pierre Lellouche, who had promoted the resolution to impeach Socialist President Francois Hollande, said that, despite the fact that the resolution was "strangled" by a majority of the left-wing Socialists, some of the Socialist lawmakers still agreed with his approach on the sidelines of the vote.

Probe Into Classified Documents Leak to Have Serious Consequences for Hollande
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — French lawmaker from The Republicans party Pierre Lellouche, who had promoted the dismissed resolution to impeach Socialist President Francois Hollande, told Sputnik that his initiative could shed light on the president's activities and influence the opinion of the French people about the president.

Earlier this week, a French parliamentary committee dismissed an impeachment call against Hollande as it failed to get the majority of votes. The dismissed resolution was initiated by Lellouche, who called to impeach president, over alleged breach of security protocols by Hollande.

"The only way to shed light on what the President has done, on what has was said and was not done is a procedure of removal from office and that is why I started it… the issue of dismissal, nevertheless, will leave its trace in the public opinion," Lellouche said.

The politician said that, despite the fact that the resolution was "strangled" by a majority of the left-wing Socialists, some of the Socialist lawmakers still agreed with his approach on the sidelines of the vote.

The first round of presidential elections in France is scheduled for April 23, 2017. Current candidates for the country's leading position include the only Socialist candidate, Hollande, as well as center-right The Republicans members Francois Fillon and Allan Juppe, and the far-right National Front's Marine Le Pen.
