Pensions: Macron announces the postponement to January 10 of the presentation of the reform – France

The presentation of the pension reform, initially scheduled for Thursday, December 15, has been postponed to January 10 in order to allow the new leaders of the Republicans and Europe Ecology The Greens “to discuss with the government”, Emmanuel Macron announced on Monday. .

“This allows us to have a few more weeks so that those who (…) have just taken on responsibilities can, on some key elements of the reform, discuss with the government”, he declared while opening the second plenary session of the National Council for Refoundation (CNR) at the Élysée.

The executive had decided to present on December 15, a few days before Christmas, this highly contested text, the many opponents announcing that they were preparing to block it by all means, from the street to Parliament.

New calendar

After the announcement of the postponement, the government immediately provided a new timetable. Elisabeth Borne will begin “a series of meetings with the presidents of parliamentary groups” Tuesday and Wednesday, it was specified on the side of Matignon. She will again receive “professional organizations and trade union organizations the week of January 2”, it was added. The Minister of Labor Olivier Dussopt will give a progress report this Thursday.

To prepare minds, the executive multiplies press interviews, work meetings at Matignon and summit dinners at the Élysée.

The Prime Minister’s announcements seem to be a foregone conclusion, marked by the presidential promise to push back the legal age from 62 to 64 or even 65 years old. This last hypothesis holds the rope.
