On the eve of the parliamentary niche of the Liot group of MEPs, the temperature rises even higher. At issue: the statements of the President of the National Assembly Yaël Braun-Pivet. "Tomorrow, whatever happens, there will not be a vote on the repeal on the pension reform," she said Wednesday on RMC / BFMTV.

The Liot group's bill on the repeal of the pension reform is due to be examined this Thursday in the Assembly. However, the majority has been raising the possibility for several weeks of using Article 40, which prohibits any parliamentary proposal that creates a burden on public finances. "On these amendments to reinstate Article 1, (which plans to go back to 62 years), I am very clear: they will be declared inadmissible by myself during the day," Braun-Pavet said. He added that there will be "other inadmissibilities that will be pronounced". "I apply the rule, nothing but the rule," she added.
Enough to make fulminate the boss of the group Liot Bertrand Pancher. The elected official denounces, to our newspaper, a "prevarication". A serious accusation. This term refers to a series of acts consisting, for the holder of an office or mandate, in not fulfilling the obligations resulting from that office or mandate. Originally, the term applied to the transgression of a divine law.

"It is not normal that this announcement is made on a TV channel, instead of first being made public on the Assembly's website, it is one more non-respect of its function," adds one in the entourage of Bertrand Pancher, denouncing "the weakening of Parliament". The group of independent MPs announced, in response, the holding of a press conference in the morning.
