, this postponement was notably requested by the president (Les Républicains, LR) of the Upper House, Gérard Larcher, anxious to calm the situation while the pension reform has aroused strong divisions, including on the right.

An agreement was finally reached, after an exchange between the elected representative of Yvelines and Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday noon, during a lunch at the Élysée Palace in which the President of the National Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, participated.

In the absence of an examination on the scheduled date, Gérald Darmanin offers several solutions.
