To the sound of La Marseillaise, the French government adopts the pension reform by decree | France

The French government decided to approve the pension reform without submitting it to a final vote in the National Assembly, which was scheduled for this Thursday. Faced with uncertainty over the outcome of the referendum vote, the prime minister resorted to a constitutional article that allows legislation to be enacted by decree.

When Élisabeth Borne took to the pulpit to officially announce the decision that was already all over the press, MPs from the left began to sing Marseille incessantly holding signs against the increase in the statutory retirement age from 62 to 64 years. This is the most controversial measure in the diploma presented by Emmanuel Macron’s executive and the one that has led to almost non-stop strikes in several sectors and brought thousands of people to the streets.
