The opposition hand in hand against a possible 49.3? The president of the National Rally announced on Sunday "discussions" in the National Assembly on a potential motion of censure common to the oppositions if the government chose to use article 49.3 to pass its pension reform. "There are discussions today in the National Assembly" on a joint motion of no confidence and "the government has a chance of falling", affirmed Jordan Bardella in the program Questions politiques France Inter/France Info/Le Monde .
The government can, on its pension reform project, have recourse to article 49.3 of the Constitution, which allows the adoption of the text without a vote, but carries the risk of a motion of censure. But this is not the hypothesis favored at this stage by the executive, which is counting on the right to pass its text by a vote. "Demonstrating is a necessity," said Jordan Bardella again about the mobilization of the unions, which are planning an eighth day of demonstrations on Wednesday. The head of the RN never took to the streets himself but always supported these demonstrations.
