The government does not want to use Article 49.3 of the Constitution, i.e. adoption without a vote, to get the National Assembly to approve its pension reform plan, the government spokesman said on Sunday. Olivier Veran. "We don't want 49.3. We want to transform our relative majority into an absolute majority and we have given ourselves the means to do so by gradually developing our project, "he said after a meeting in Matignon with the head of government Elisabeth Borne and several ministers.
This meeting with the Ministers of Economy Bruno Le Maire, Labor Olivier Dussopt, Public Accounts Gabriel Attal and Relations with Parliament Franck Riester aimed to learn from the adoption of the text by the Senate, Saturday evening at first reading. "We must be able to confirm this positive vote of the senators," said Olivier Véran.
This suspense in the lower house of parliament has revived speculation about the government's recourse to article 49.3 which allows adoption without a vote, but exposes the executive to a motion of censure. "We will not give up on our pension reform," Olivier Véran also told reporters on Sunday. "We are registering step by step all the signs that allow us to consider that we will be able to pass our reform," he added.
