In the aftermath of a baroud of honor in the street, the protest against the pension reform is heading towards its epilogue in Parliament: the president of the National Assembly announced that she would block the examination of the measure of repeal of the 64 years, which was scheduled Thursday in the hemicycle.
"On these amendments to restore Article 1 [which plans to go back to 62 years], I am very clear: they will be declared inadmissible by myself during the day," Yaël Braun-Pivet said Wednesday on BFMTV.
"I apply the rule, nothing but the rule," she added, referring to Article 40 of the Constitution, which prohibits any parliamentary proposal that creates a burden on public finances.
The rest of the bill, carried by the independent group of deputies Liot and supported by most of the oppositions, can still be examined on Thursday. But without a possible vote on its flagship measure which aimed to repeal the postponement of the legal age of departure from 62 to 64 years.
The Liot text has kept alive the flame of opponents of the reform promulgated in mid-April, even if the participation Tuesday in the 14th day of mobilization was the lowest recorded in five months of demonstrations.
