"Nothing is over", "Borne must go" ... The oppositions do not let go after the adoption of the pension reform


While the parliamentary majority is reassured to have passed this emblematic text and wants to move forward, the opposition groups do not hear it that way.

It is not because a bill ends up passing through the National Assembly that the oppositions lower their arms.

While the pension reform, long debated since the beginning of January, has just been adopted on Monday after the rejection of two motions of censure - including one narrowly with nine votes - the government and the majority are blowing and want to close this sequence .

In a tweet published a few moments after the outcome of the vote on the text of the Liot group, Élisabeth Borne was pleased that the national representation had

"arrived at the end of the democratic journey of this essential reform for our country."

And to add:

It is with humility and seriousness that I assumed my responsibility and that of my government.

For our pay-as-you-go pension system.

For our social model.


A declaration expected from the Prime Minister, necessary to give a little balm to the heart to the majority, but whose tone does not have enough to temper the exhaustion of the oppositions.

Starting with the leader of the rebellious deputies Mathilde Panot.

After the non-adoption of the first motion of censure, the elected representative of Val-de-Marne mocked a government

"already dead in the eyes of the French"

and a head of government who has "no

more power to continue its action

”, having to “

resign by taking its reform with it.

“Before thundering:”

Nothing has been settled, and everything continues in the country to continue to ensure that this reform is withdrawn.

Still within the Insoumis, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, for his part, called for “

popular censorship (


since the process of parliamentary censorship did not work.

“The former candidate of the Insoumis for the presidential election”

wishes that this popular censorship is expressed in any place, in all circumstances and that it allows us to obtain the withdrawal of the text.


Nine votes of difference are not enough to change our minds

," he added.

For the first secretary of the PS Olivier Faure,

"Emmanuel Macron has opened a social and political crisis"

, and

"has isolated himself."

Predicting that

"the Borne government is living its last hours",

the socialist deputy for Seine-et-Marne considers that

“there are now only three solutions: immediate withdrawal, referendum or dissolution.”

On the other side of the political spectrum, Marine Le Pen, who carried one of the two motions of censure with her group, is no more tender than her colleagues from Nupes.

According to the former nationalist contender for the supreme office, “

the wind of the cannonball did not pass far anyway.

Politically, the president cannot act as if nothing had happened.

“A little later, the leader of the elected RN urged the executive to draw the consequences: the Prime Minister, whose team was “

sanctioned both in form and in substance

”, “

must leave or the president should resign her.

“The opportunity also for Marine Le Pen to rebuke the votes of the LR group more than ever divided, but which made it possible to save the government:

These are a number of LRs who are responsible for maintaining the government.

They will have to bear the consequences in front of the voters (...) By saving the head of the government, these LRs have clearly positioned themselves in the majority of Emmanuel Macron.


The right precisely quickly displayed its divisions in public.

On the one hand, Éric Ciotti, president of LR, has also posed as the guarantor of the unity of his camp.

Our political family, in a spirit of coherence, of responsibility, refused to join in the inevitable chaos if this motion had been adopted

”, then affirmed the deputy of the Alpes-Maritimes.

And then kick into touch when the latter is questioned about these 19 elected LRs, out of 61, who voted for: "

The censorship was not approved by a very large majority of LR deputies in accordance with what we had wished

" .

In this context, its former vice-president Aurélien Pradié is not quite on the same wavelength.

If the nine walnuts apart

“resonate like a powerful electroshock”,

in the words of the deputy from Lot, this opponent of the pension reform emphasizes the splits of the Republicans: “

At no time in our group , there was no voting instruction (...) it

(our political family, editor's note)

is going through a crisis, but otherwise less important than the one our country is going through.

“Because the pension reform has not finished being a catalyst for the divisions of the Republicans: a strategic council of the party is planned for Tuesday morning.
