Pension reform: Macron will meet Borne and several ministers next week

The objective will be to calm the disagreements that have arisen within the majority.

A desire to calm down, after several days of tension. Emmanuel Macron will meet next week with Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne, concerned ministers and majority leaders to discuss again the highly controversial pension reform, BFMTV has learned, confirming information from the Figaro.

L’enjeu de cette rencontre est, entre autres, de calmer les désaccords que sont nés au sein de la majorité, ceux de François Bayrou et de Yaël Braun-Pivet en sont l’illustration, liés à la manière dont cette loi pourrait finally entrer in force.

“The Right Maneuver”

This Thursday with BFMTV, Emmanuel Macron had estimated that regarding this reform it is up to the Government to “find the right maneuver” with Parliament, demanding that the reform be done “in the most peaceful way possible.”

“The government must open a discussion with the social, trade union and employer forces, with the political forces, and find, it is their job, with Parliament, the good maneuver”, assured the Head of State in an interview with our media.

The opposition in the Assembly, as well as part of the majority, has demonstrated in recent days against the presentation of an amendment on this issue in the Social Security Financing Bill (PLFSS), in which they see “a passage in force”.

The president of the National Assembly (Renaissance) Yaël Braun-Pivet declared on Thursday that she “is not in favor” of this reform going through an amendment, and asked the government to “take the time to consult.”

Especially since it is most likely that the budget text will be approved thanks to the resource of article 49.3 of the Constitution, which allows the approval of a text without a vote except for a motion of censure.
