The bill to repeal the pension reform, which is to be debated on June 8 in the National Assembly, is “a lack of respect for the French”, estimated Friday May 26 Elisabeth Borne, reaffirming that it was “unconstitutional”. “If I want Parliament to vote on an unconstitutional bill? My answer is no, “said the Prime Minister, during a trip to Côte-d’Or devoted to biodiversity.

“I find it scandalous to let the French people believe that we could vote for a text which everyone knows first of all that it is not certain that it will go to the end of its course and that, if it were to be adopted, then it would be canceled by the Constitutional Council,” said Elisabeth Borne in Châtillon-sur-Seine.

The independent parliamentary group LIOT (Freedoms, Independents, Overseas Territories and Territories) has tabled a bill repealing the increase in the retirement age to 64 years. This proposal, which enjoys broad support from the opposition, is to be debated on Wednesday in committee, then in the Hemicycle on June 8.

The presidential majority is currently examining the legal and parliamentary means of preventing a high-risk vote, which would have a strong political impact, even if it is very unlikely to actually lead to a questioning of the pension reform.
