The rebellious France will not stop there. This was assured this Sunday by the coordinator of LFI, Manuel Bompard, after the adoption of the bill of the Liot group, which aimed to repeal retirement at 64 years. A text emptied of its substance by the presidential camp which managed to vote a "deletion amendment" of Article 1. "There was on the part of the presidential minority and the president of the National Assembly a democratic robbery," said Manuel Bompard on the set of Cnews.

After the deletion of Article 1, the deputies of La Nupes, and particularly La France insoumise, tabled more than a thousand amendments on Wednesday to try to delay the final vote. Faced with a flagrant case of "parliamentary obstruction", the chair of the Social Affairs Committee, Fadila Katthabi (Renaissance), decided not to "examine" them. A strategy implemented after "having discussed it with the president of the National Assembly", but without convening the bureau of the commission, as is customary. "No article of the rules or the Constitution allows him to refuse a right that is essential to any democracy," said Manuel Bompard. Under pressure from the socialist benches, the committee chair ended up convening a bureau, confirming her first decision to cancel the left's sub-amendments.
Too late, however, for La France insoumise, determined to "seize the Council of State" to decide the constitutionality of the maneuver. If the high court considers itself "incompetent" on the subject, the movement will seize "the European Court of Human Rights", warned Manuel Bompard. "We will not let it happen that just one person decides, opposition deputies no longer have the right to table amendments on a text," warned the close to Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
