There opposition to the French President, Emmanuel Macronboth at extreme right as extreme leftis organized separately to try overthrow the government with one of motions of censure presented today after the adoption by decree of the controversial pension reform.
On the left, the leader of La Francia Insumisa (LFI), Jean-Luc Melenchonannounced on Friday that his party was going to drop its own no-confidence motion and that it would support the one announced by a parliamentary group called LIOT (Freedom, Independents, Overseas and Territories), made up of about twenty centrist, regionalist and nationalist deputies (on the 577 of the camera).
In a radio interview France InfoMélenchon justified this strategy to give more possibilities to the demolition of the executive of the Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borneand insisted that the ultimate goal is scrap the pension reform.
“This text has no parliamentary legitimacy”, he denounced, before insisting on the fact that a government executed it “who is a minority in the country”.
After the activation this Thursday by Borne of article 49.3 of the Constitution to ignore the vote on the reform in the Assembly, where the necessary absolute majority was not guaranteed, the opposition can present motions of censorship which, if successful, would mean the fall of the government and also the invalidation of the reform itself.
The leader of the extreme right, Marine Le Penimmediately announced that his party, the National association (RN), will present its motion of censurebut also that he will support any other who allows the overthrow of the Borne executive.
The president of the RN, Jordan Bardelarepeated this morning on the station France Info that they will support other no-confidence motions like that of LIOT because their objective is to dismiss Borne: “I think he has to leave.”
In order for any of the motions of no confidence that are going to be presented to prosper (the deadline for formalizing them ends at 3:30 p.m. local time (2:30 p.m. GMT), the vote of 289 deputiesIn other words, the support of LIOT, the left-wing coalition NUPES and the RN would not be enough.
Some deputies of Los Republicanos (LR), the traditional right-wing party, should distance themselves from the official position of their party, which has shown that it is in full disintegration with the debate on pensions, since for years she was the one who defended a reform to delay the retirement age.
“All hypotheses are possible,” he said. Aurelien Pradiewho is the visible head of the LR deputies who were against the reform, whose main axis is raise the minimum retirement age from 62 to 64.
