Fellows studied the text in an atmosphere of tension

About sixty deputies of the Social Affairs Committee are working item by item on the text, which envisages lowering the legal age from 62 to 64 before the test and accelerating the extension of the payment period. Hemicycle from February 6 on the flagship reform of Macron’s second five-year term.

Elected representatives of the Nupes left union came in large numbers, so much so that some had to settle between LR and RN due to lack of seats on the left.

Socialist Arthur Delaport immediately asked for “extra days” for the exam, which ends on Tuesday. About 7,000 amendments were tabled, including 6,000 leftists.

The tight deadlines are defined by the Secu’s draft amending budget, which limits debates in Parliament to a total of fifty days, the vector chosen by the executive.

“More can be agreed”

The tone rose a notch on Sunday after Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne insisted that delaying the legal leaving age to 64 was “no longer negotiable”.

On Monday, Mathilde Panot, the leader of the LFI deputies, responded to him, noting that “withdrawal of the text is not negotiable”.

On France 2, Laurent Berger, secretary general of the CFDT, warned Mrs Borne that she “cannot turn a blind eye to this huge mobilization that has been created”.

For his part, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin repeated his accusations from Marseille on Monday about the weekend, Nupes, who is suspected of “marching” in the debate to “systematically obstruct the progress of the government”: “Demarcation, I think that we will do it this morning in the National Assembly we saw in the committee”, he stressed.

Unions hope to do at least this after the events of January 19, which resulted in an anti-reform demonstration of 1-2 million people. A hope bolstered by polls confirming a growing rejection of public opinion.

The holiday promises to be very popular in transport and school. Air France will cancel one in ten short- and medium-haul flights, but long-haul routes will not be affected.

Snuipp-FSU, the first primary school union, has predicted that half of first-level teachers will strike.

An intelligence source expects 1.2 million demonstrators nationally “in the high range, including 100,000 in Paris, with 240 marches or rallies planned.”

11,000 police and gendarmes will be deployed across France on Tuesday, including 4,000 in Paris, to control the demonstrations, said Gerald Darmanin, who hoped the protests would be held “under the same conditions without serious incidents” as previous mobilizations. .

In a committee in the Assembly, Tuesday’s exchanges could be particularly intense for this day of national interprofessional mobilization.

At the meeting on February 6

Left, a “lonely, unfair and unfounded” text, even “anti-feminist”. In response, the LFI presented its “counter-project” on Monday afternoon, which provides a pension with 40 annuities, especially at the age of 60, and a pension of at least 1,600 euros for the entire full career.

Elected representatives of the left oppose the 64-year-old as a whole and refuse to obstruct, avoiding mere formal amendments. Insoumise Clémentine Autain says: “We will adapt our tactics as we go, we want to discuss Article 7”.

RN MPs fight age deferral but reserve forces for hemisphere.

In turn, the right side, whose voices are decisive for the reception of the text, also increases the stake. The LRs have demands for women whose careers have been interrupted, those who start work at the age of 20, family rights and even delaying the implementation of the reform.

The presidential majority cannot be withdrawn, but it was asked to curb its enthusiasm in order to preserve the financial balance of the reform. The idea of ​​stronger restrictions on the employment of seniors in large companies is gaining ground during the Renaissance.

Regardless of whether it is accepted in the committee or not, the project will be presented at the meeting to be held on February 6. The rule on budget texts requires that there be an initial version presented without amendments adopted in committee.
