“In the constitution it is the Prime Minister who chooses, but in real life it is Emmanuel Macron who, seems to him, in a hurry to end it perhaps this Wednesday (February 26). While Édouard Philippe would lean for a little extra week of debate, but that does not change much. What is at stake is the battle of opinion ”, explains journalist Nathalie Saint-Cricq on the 20 Hours set.
“The French are rather hostile to this poorly explained reform”

And there is in the middle the majority who want the text adopted to take into account its amendments concerning women or the difficulty of accepting to swallow the pill.“, Continues the journalist.
