Monday February 17, the National Assembly begins the examination of the pension reform. Journalist Serge Cimino is live from the hemicycle to take stock of the situation.
The government is hoping for a vote on March 3. But with the 41,000 amendments that constitute the pension reform project, the parliamentary battle promises to be tough. “One would almost forget the content of the text of the reform, so much the question of the calendar occupies all minds here. I remind you that the special commission which was to study the text was not completed, which is a first. There were already 22,000 amendments, so she did not go to the end of this text.“, Explains journalist Serge Cimino.
“The debate is scheduled for two weeks or even three weeks”
Monday February 17, the discussion on the pension reform starts again from zero with more than 41,000 amendments. “To lay the groundwork for this calendar, the debate is scheduled for two weeks, or even three weeks, which brings us to the beginning of March. But tradition has it that there is a parliamentary recess when there is a ballot, in this case the municipal campaign. The holidays can be canceled, which gives fifteen days of additional debate ”, concludes the journalist.
