MPs from the opposition group put forward a vote of no confidence in the French government
Centrists and former Macronists, members of the LIOT (Libertés, Indépendants, Outre-mer et Territoires) group in the National Assembly (lower house of the French Parliament), put forward a vote of no confidence in the government of Prime Minister Elisabeth Born. About this on Friday, March 17, writes BFMTV.
The vote is signed by 91 people from five opposition political groups. “I call on the responsibility of all deputies to protect our democracy,” said Bertrand Panchet, president of the LIOT group.
BFM TV notes that passing a vote of no confidence is an unlikely prospect. This should be supported by 287 deputies of the lower house of parliament.
On March 16, the French Prime Minister announced the adoption of pension reform, bypassing a vote in Parliament. This was done in accordance with paragraph 3 of article 49 of the constitution, which gives the government such an opportunity.
The bill on changes in the French pension system Born presented in January. The project provides for raising the retirement age to 64 years. After this, thousands began in the country protests.
