Ministers and members of the majority met on Monday, April 29 in Matignon to discuss the implementation of the measures taken after the great national debate. The program is loaded.
Édouard Philippe’s schedule for the next three months is dizzy. From next week, launch of the battle for employment, reorganization of the administration, gesture for retirees, gesture for mothers living alone. In June, lower income tax financed by the elimination of certain tax loopholes that benefited businesses.
In July, law on bioethics with the delicate question of assisted reproduction, reform of institutions and the long-awaited report on pensions. The Prime Minister must show that Emmanuel Macron’s promises will be kept. Édouard Philippe knows that if the majority fails in the European elections, many will ask for his resignation. So on certain reforms such as pensions, he procrastinates. The report is expected in July, but the bill will be debated in parliament at the end of the summer. To hurry slowly is a condition of survival.
