Paris Attacks: France’s State Of Emergency May Last Months

France President - Francois Hollande
French President Francois Hollande will present a bill to extend the state of emergency in France, as well as propose severe amendments to the constitution in light of a recent wave of attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people.

The French leader said on Monday, in an exceptional joint gathering of parliament, that he would make the proposals on Wednesday and parliamentarians would vote on them before the end of the week.

Friday’s “acts of war… were decided and planned in Syria, prepared and organised in Belgium and perpetrated on our soil with French complicity,” he said, speaking in Versailles, south of Paris.

“I have asked the prime minister to prepare constitutional amendments,” he added.

Those amendments include exceptional measures such as stripping the citizenship of convicted terrorists, increased surveillance, and “more sophisticated methods” to curb weapons trafficking.

He proposed measures to speed up the expulsion of foreigners considered a threat to public order, strip binational citizens who carry out acts hostile to national security of French citizenship, and bar binationals considered a terrorism risk from entering French territory.

“We must change our constitution to act against terrorism,” he said.
