Pension reform: "On the side of the right, there is consistency and openness", says Véran


While Elisabeth Borne has just made a gesture towards the Republicans by offering retirement at 63 to those who started early, Olivie

He didn't mince his words.

Guest of the "Grand Rendez-vous" Europe 1 / Les Échos / CNews, the government spokesperson, Olivier Véran, has stepped up to defend the pension reform, which will be examined from this Monday in the National Assembly .

For him, Elisabeth Borne's announcement on long careers - those who started working between the ages of 20 and 21 will leave at 63, she told the JDD - is a sign of "the spirit of openness” of the government.

“We do not give in, (…) when we enrich, we always win”, he assured.

Olivier Véran also congratulated the right for its "coherence", its "openness" and its "ability to work together".

Conversely, he was much more critical of the left, explaining that he feared a “stupid and nasty obstruction from the Nupes”.

“18,000 amendments is like throwing tomato soup on a chalkboard”

For him, the 18,000 amendments tabled by the left are "useless", it's like "throwing tomato soup on a board", he compared, referring to the actions carried out in different museums of the world by environmental activists.

"It would take months and months of reading, to read and understand" the thousands of amendments, said the spokesperson.

"It's not up to a mandate, I would never do such a thing," he criticized.

Recognizing that the reform was "not popular" and that there was "never a good political moment" for such a proposal, the former Minister of Health assured that the presidential majority would accept "amendments" which will come from its own ranks but also "from the opposition".

"Some individuals" among the Renaissance deputies "wanted improvements" to the text, acknowledged Olivier Véran, but he swept away the slightest "organized sling" in the ranks of the macronie.
