French President Emmanuel Macron prepares the expected speech to the French after the street protests against the pension reform and excludes a government reshuffle and controversy over alleged police violence.

Protestor punched in France, police controversy

Macron does not back down in stigmatizing the violence and assures that the crowd has no "legitimacy before the people who express themselves sovereign through the elected", according to what was reported by a participant in the meeting with the majority parliamentarians received by the president yesterday evening at the Elysée.

That he promised to defend "the democratic and republican order" in the face of protests, sometimes violent.

"Revolts - he said - cannot get the better of the people's representatives".

Macron also told parliamentarians that it is necessary to "appease" and "listen to anger. Using the Constitution to push through a reform is always a good thing if we want to be respectful of our institutions", added the president to justify the use of the 'article 49.3 which allows a law to be passed without going through parliament unless a 'motion of censure' (no confidence) is adopted, then ensuring that there was "no alternative majority".
