Many La République en Marche deputies decide to quit the party. They denounce, among other things, the management of the pension reform.

Several LREM deputies leave the ship

It is a phenomenon with even smaller numbers, but which has tended to intensify in recent days. If LREM had 314 deputies in 2017, they are only 300 in 2020. Three deputies slammed the door on this single week. Some were fired, others chose to leave for political disagreements, not always feeling listened to. An observation that the party defends. “Most of the majority remain united”, assures Marie Lebec, LREM member of Yvelines and vice-president of the LREM group at the National Assembly.

A lack of listening on the pension reform

The last to leave the ship, the member for Charente-Maritime Frédéric Tuffnell explains that this decision was partly motivated by the lack of listening of his party concerning the pension reform. “We are on a reform which blocks, which does not pass, and there, I have completely reached a level of blocking myself”, she says.
