After a fiery debate within the macronist ranks on the best way to initiate pension reform, Emmanuel Macron has whistled the end of recess.

“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.
