The opposition in the Assembly, as well as part of the majority, have come out in recent days against the tabling of an amendment on this subject in the Social Security financing bill (PLFSS), in which they see “a passage in force”.

The President of the National Assembly (Renaissance) Yaël Braun-Pivet declared Thursday that she was “not in favor” of this reform going through an amendment, asking the government to “take the time for consultation”.

Especially since the budget text will most likely pass thanks to the recourse of article 49.3 of the Constitution, which allows the adoption of a text without a vote except for a motion of censure.
