The President of the National embly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, ruled, Thursday, May 25, that the bill brought by the parliamentary group Freedoms, Independents, Overseas and Territories (LIOT) aimed at repealing the pension reform was ” obviously “ inadmissible due to Article 40 of the Constitution, which stipulates that the proposals and amendments of parliamentarians are not admissible if they lead to a reduction in revenue or an increase in public charges. Thus, she asked the chairman of the finance committee, Eric Coquerel (La France insoumise), to reject it.
“It is up to the Chairman of the Finance Committee who is seized of this question of Article 40 [de la Constitution] to pronounce the inadmissibility” since “Obviously the text of the law constitutes a burden on our public finances and therefore contravenes this article”she thought. on South Radio. “It is his mission and I hope he will fulfill it fully”she added, before insisting: “I can’t imagine him making any other decision. »
“I will respect the prerogatives of each other at each stage and indeed, in the hemicycle, it is I who am accountable for the application of article 40”she also warned, in case Mr. Coquerel would not pronounce the inadmissibility. “My role is to enforce the law and the institutions”did she say.
“She does not want the embly to be trampled on”
“You will still have to explain to me this logic which requires that the office of the embly chaired by Yaël Braun-Pivet validates this bill including under article 40 (art. 89-1 of the regulations) but then considers with as certainty that it would be for me to invalidate it”replied immediately on Twitter Eric Coquerel.
The elected Mélenchoniste, strongly opposed to the pension reform, intends to defend a parliamentary custom: to let the texts of the deputies prosper, including those outside the budgetary nails, so as not to curb parliamentary initiatives. Asked in real time about this answer, Mme Braun-Pivet ured that she was going ” obviously ” exchange with him.
The bill has, in fact, chances of being adopted in the National embly. And if it is unlikely that the text will then be validated in the Senate, the presidential camp fears to suffer a symbolic defeat with a potentially devastating effect on public opinion.
The unions support the LIOT group’s proposal, which is due to be considered on June 8, two days after a fourteenth day of strikes and demonstrations against the pension reform.
