Unsurprisingly, the bill to repeal the pension reform was accepted on Tuesday, May 30, by the Chairman of the Finance Committee, Eric Cockerell (La France insoumise).

A decision that makes the majority cringe, and the heads of their groups (Renaissance, MoDem, Horizons) immediately lash out “Partisan and Political Decision” by Eric Cockerella “A serious attack on our institutions”.
