- Uncertain of obtaining a vote in the Assembly on the pension reform bill, Elisabeth Borne resorted to Article 49.3 of the Constitution. This allows him to engage the responsibility of his government on a text and to see it adopted, unless a motion of censure tabled this Friday is voted by the Assembly on Monday. The weekend promises to be breathless.
- In response to this appeal, many demonstrations took place Thursday night in several cities of France with multiple clashes. In total, 310 people were arrested in France including 258 in Paris, announced Friday Gérald Darmanin, the Minister of the Interior. At the same time, CGT activists blocked traffic on the Paris ring road.
- "It would be a failure if there was no text, but there is a text", "it is not a failure", commented Olivier Dussport, the Minister of Labour on RMC / BFMTV. He added that he would have preferred there to be a vote, sought by the executive "until the last minute". For his part, Jean-Luc Mélenchon announced Friday that the group La France insoumise (LFI) would support the motion of censure of the group of independents (Liot) in the National Assembly in order to "give the greatest possible chances to the censorship" of the Borne government.
