Pension reform: former Macronist minister Barbara Pompili will not vote for the text as it stands


Patroness of the microparty of the majority "In Common", and Renaissance deputy, the ecologist fears that "social injustices" arise from certain provisions.

Some have fun with it.

We are a small pebble in the shoe

,” smiles Cécile Rilhac, Renaissance MP and member of the “In Common” microparty, one of the many chapels of the presidential camp.

Allusion to the words of the leader of the current, Barbara Pompili, who affirmed Monday evening to BFMTV that she refused "

at this stage

" to support the pension reform.


If I were to vote now, I could not vote for

", thus indicated the ecolomacronist, emphasizing the "

social injustices

“that the government text would entail.

This, while the Head of State had already defended the main orientations during the last campaign and during the previous five-year term, when she was Minister for the Ecological Transition (2020-2022).

We are in solidarity with what our president has said

,” replies Cécile Rilhac.


We believe that the postponement of the legal retirement age is something unequal

," she continues, saying that negotiations are still underway between her colleagues from the left wing of the majority and the Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borne.

We want this reform to be rebalanced in terms of social justice

, specifies the elected representative of Val-d'Oise,

because, as it stands, we cannot vote for this text


And to evoke pell-mell the arduousness of work, the employment of seniors, the management of long careers, the consideration of chopped careers for women and the recognition of parental leave.

Before concluding : "

All these points seem very important to us and we are working this week with our activists to formulate our proposals.


The words of Barbara Pompili and the positioning of her troops also support the reluctance of part of the left wing of the presidential coalition on what they consider to be too little social progress in the pension reform.

These are debates, it's rather healthy.

But I remind you all the same that this reform is part of the program which allowed us to be elected deputies a few months ago

”, tempers in return Prisca Thevenot, Renaissance deputy for Hauts-de-Seine.


It's completely normal that we annoy

", recognizes meanwhile the "pompiliste" Cécile Rilhac.


However, we obviously remain in the majority, just like a certain number of deputies of the social-democrat current - who affirm that things remain to be improved in this text - are also part of it.

» Then to resume his metaphor one last time: «

We are this little pebble in the shoe which allows us to realize that, when we remove it, we move forward much better.
