Use of Article 49.3 on pensions: the Liot group will file a cross-partisan motion of censure


The president of this small centrist group, Bertrand Pancher, threatened to overthrow the government if it did not resign.

They were expected, they should respond present.

The deputies of the Liot group (Freedoms, independents, overseas and territories) will file

“in the next few hours”

a motion of cross-partisan censure.

“We denounce the use of 49.3

which demonstrates the deafness of the government incapable of building compromises”

, justified the group president, Bertrand Pancher.

After this passage in force, the elected representative of the Meuse expressly asked for

"the withdrawal of the reform"

and the

"resignation of the government",


"without a quick response"

to overthrow the government of Elisabeth Borne.

With only twenty deputies, the Liots cannot, on their own, table a motion of censure.

They will therefore have to count on the signature of 38 other deputies to reach the necessary threshold of 58 parliamentarians.

This maneuver could in any case federate the oppositions, from the Nupes to the National Rally.

The communist Fabien Roussel had earlier called on the Liot group to file a motion of censure.

For her part, Marine Le Pen has already announced that her RN troops will vote

“all motions of censure”

Despite Éric Ciotti's veto - according to which LR will not support

"any motion of censure"

, Aurélien Pradié does not rule out voting it.

"Each deputy remains totally free

," said the deputy of Lot.

Among them, the elected official of Pas-de-Calais, Pierre-Henri Dumont, does not rule out participating either.

Several colleagues will follow him

"very probably"

in his approach, even said this close friend of Pradié.

In the spotlight for several weeks, it is the centrist Charles de Courson who could carry the motion of censure.

The Dean of the Assembly has established himself as one of the fervent opponents of pension reform.

By filing a motion of censure, the small group thus seems to be addressing an end of inadmissibility to the outstretched hand of Emmanuel Macron.

At the end of October, the head of state had wanted

to “build an alliance”

with these moderate elected officials.
