The French Parliament in Congress

Today, Monday, February 4th, 2008, the two assemblies of the French Parliament were in Congress to modify the Constitution of the Fifth Republic, conforming to Article 89 of this Constitution. The Constitution now integrates the European Union Treaty of Lisbon.

These Congresses took place at the Versailles Palace. Deputies and Senators can post mail at a special post office, whose cancellation (quite simple datestamp) is researched by collectors. But to please their electors, Members of Parliament accept to post them covers of course.

For some philatelic evocations about the Congress:
* on Philatélie et marcophilie blog about the 2007 Congress;
* there a deputy reminded his fellow citizens that he accept to post covers for them.
