The consultations have started in Matignon. And for her first interview with parliamentarians, Elisabeth Borne received Hervé Marseille (UDI). The leader of the centrist senators advised the Prime Minister to be “more attentive” to reformist unions like the CFDT to try to get out of the pension crisis.

“We told the Prime Minister that it seemed essential to us, or in any case necessary, to work more closely with the most reformist unions, and that it was not a good thing for the country to have a blockage of this nature, in particular with the unions”, declared the senator at the end of his meeting, in which also participated the senator Valérie Létard, president of the National Council of the UDI, and the deputy Christophe Naegelen (UDI ), co-chairman of the Liot group (Liberties, Independents, Overseas and Territories).

The senator also expressed the need to “refocus government action” on the social. “We shared what seemed to us to be missing from government policy in recent months, that is to say the social angle […]: not enough social justice, fiscal and territorial equity. »

The Prime Minister this week initiated a series of consultations with parliamentary groups and unions to try to “appease” the country and “accelerate” on “concrete” projects in education, health or ecology. “There is a set of texts” on which the executive wishes to move forward, such as “the energy programming law, the military programming law, a text on agriculture”, reported Hervé Marseille.

After the UDI, Senator Jean-Claude Requier, president of the RDSE group (European Democratic and Social Rally), cited as texts mentioned by Elisabeth Borne the military programming law and a probable “agricultural programming law”.

On the pension reform, “we are waiting for the decision of the Constitutional Council” on April 14, he just said.
