Sanction the government.
After the triggering of 49.3 by Elisabeth Borne to have her pension reform adopted, the opposition intends to respond.
The Prime Minister knows it: “
In a few days, I have no doubt, the government's commitment to responsibility will be answered by one or more motions of censure.
A vote will therefore take place, as it should.
And it is therefore parliamentary democracy that will have the last word
, ”she said from the podium, to the boos of her opponents.
If they wish, the oppositions now have 24 hours to file a motion of censure.
Marine Le Pen has already announced that her group would use it: “
We must censure this government and we hope that those who were about to vote against this pension reform will vote for this motion of censure.
“Faced with the strained microphones, the boss of the RN group in the National Assembly also affirmed: “
We will vote for all of the motions of censure that are tabled.
"A motion of censure can overthrow the government"
For his part, the communist deputy Fabien Roussel called on the Liot group to file a motion of censure.
She is ready and we will support her.
This maneuver, however, rarely succeeds.
But, this time, the oppositions want to believe in a cross-partisan motion of censure: "
I say this with seriousness: this is perhaps the first time that a motion of censure can indeed overthrow the government
", indicated on BFMTV the ecologist deputy Julien Bayou.
"I call on the
to vote for or against respect for our institutions and the cohesion of the country."
Mathilde Panot, the president of the LFI group in the National Assembly, said last Tuesday on Public Senate that her group would “
” table a motion of censure in the event of 49.3.
We would agree to bring a motion with Liot
”, she then specified.
“without the National Rally: it would make a Liot motion, a few
LRs and the Nupes”
The option of the shared initiative referendum
Another counter-offensive, more complex, carried in particular by the Communists: the recourse to the referendum of shared initiative (RIP) to make decide directly the French.
The path is winding and has several stages.
It is first necessary to bring together 185 parliamentarians to table a bill.
We have them
”, certifies the PCF deputy, Stéphane Peu.
The Constitutional Council will then have to ensure that the text does not concern a subject already rejected by referendum – which is not the case for this pension reform – nor that the law is… already enacted.
The window of opportunity is therefore very short.
We had messages from the Constitutional Council saying that we had to move quickly because the government wants to promulgate the text very quickly.
We are twisted a little arm
, “said PS Senator Patrick Kanner on Wednesday, assuring that the Council will be seized “
at the beginning of next week
If the Elders validate the bill, the hardest part will remain before the parliamentarians: to collect the signatures of one tenth of the electorate - that is 4.87 million people.
Unheard of so far.
The President of the Republic would then be obliged to call a referendum… if this bill is not examined in the National Assembly or the Senate within the following six months.
An obstacle course which therefore discourages some on the left.
