After a fiery debate within the macronist ranks on the best way to initiate pension reform, Emmanuel Macron has whistled the end of recess.
To pass it, he waved the threat of the dissolution of the Assembly to keep control.
A gesture of authority coupled with a mark of openness: because the executive finally rallied to the idea of a great consultation until Christmas, and a bill at the beginning of 2023.
“If a motion of censure is voted, I dissolve in the minute”, he asserted during a dinner with Élisabeth Borne and the main executives of the majority, Wednesday at the Élysée.
After a very vertical first five-year term, the candidate for his re-election had nevertheless promised a new method, all of consultation and listening, if he was reappointed.

To impose an injustice rejected by the majority of the people, its representatives are dissolved.
