Pension reform: the examination of the bill opens at the National Assembly

The pension reform bill, the examination of which began on Monday February 17 in the National Assembly, can it be adopted before the municipal elections? “In any case, it is always the objective that is displayed by the government. For the moment, 15 days of debate are planned, but it is true that it is not certain that this is enough to examine the mountain of amendments, 41,000 have been tabled, including 23,000 by rebellious France alone ”, explains Guillaume Daret, live from the National Assembly in Paris.

Recourse to 49.3 “not desirable, but not totally excluded”

The rebellious France perfectly assumes this obstruction strategy to prevent “The vote of an unjust reform”, as she called it. “It is a fierce struggle that will begin at the Palais Bourbon, especially since a number of questions remain on the budgetary impact or the financing of the reform. Faced with this complicated situation, the majority considers that recourse to 49.3, which allows a text to be adopted without a vote if the government takes responsibility, is not desirable, but not totally ruled out if the debate becomes really impossible ”, concludes the journalist.
