Pension reform: "Sabotage is not winning", says Richard Ferrand

While the special parliamentary committee will certainly not be able to study the pension reform bill by Wednesday, February 12, due to the thousands of amendments tabled by La France insoumise, the President of the National Assembly Richard Ferrand declares Tuesday morning that “sabotage” a reform “Is not winning”. The most important in his eyes, “This is the concrete situation” for the French people “Which will result from this bill”. “However, if it is simply (…) to obstruct so that the debate does not take place, that is not a good thing. So what is important is that the debate takes place ”, underlines Richard Ferrand, who thinks of voting the text of the pension reform before the municipal elections.

“Sense of distance”

Regarding the quack that took place in the hemicycle concerning the extension of the leave for the bereavement of a child, Richard Ferrand wants to put things back in place: “When you are in the National Assembly, when you practice law (…), you necessarily have a cold and technical demeanor. And when these subjects concern things which are overwhelming (…) in this case the loss of a child, the contrast is appalling and gives the feeling of distance. Obviously, not a deputy, whatever his sensitivity, is inhuman or does not lack compassion for this subject ”.
