Seventeen motions filed in one year for the same result. The motion of censure defended by the Nupes was rejected by the National embly on Monday June 12. Voted by 239 deputies, it should have received an absolute majority, ie 289 votes out of 577 deputies, to be adopted and overthrow the government. Before the vote, Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne had argued the ” courage “ of his government in the face of “decibels” opposition, and defended his record as reshuffle rumors gather pace.
“Real political courage is to get out of the comfort of posture” And “to build majorities, even with those who don’t think exactly like us”pleaded the Prime Minister at the podium of the embly. “Me, I don’t confuse courage and decibels”, she launched, taking up the words of former head of government Bernard Cazeneuve on Saturday about Nupes. She also castigated the “inconsistencies”, “Contradictions” and the “demagoguery” oppositions.

Before the examination of this motion, tabled in the extension of the battle for pensions, the head of government had noted on Sunday on France 3 that “regularly some of the opposition leads us to demonstrate again that there is no alternative majority”.
During this interview, Mr.me Borne did not deny that there could be a change of government team. “These questions are discussed with the President of the Republic”, did she say. She hopes to have consolidated her position at Matignon since her recourse to article 49.3 in March to have the pension reform adopted, and a motion of censure ped in the wake of nine votes for the adoption.
Possibility of redesign
The president of Renaissance, Stéphane Séjourné, invited parliamentarians from the majority on June 21 to discuss the “political context”according to two sources within the party.
Socialist MP Valérie Rabault defended, from 4 p.m., this new motion of censure of the left alliance New People’s Ecologist and Social Union (Nupes), response to the failure, Thursday, of an attempt to repeal retirement at age 64. The bill could not be voted on in the National embly, which signals a “anti-democratic coup”according to the proponents of the motion.
But for lack of support from the right, censorship had no chance of being voted on, on this anniversary of the first round of legislative elections a year ago. For the president of the finance committee of the embly, Eric Coquerel (La France insoumise), it was necessary despite everything ” to mark the hit “of the “red lines” having been crossed.
“It serves to express our anger, our disapproval of a government and a President of the Republic who used the worst of the Fifth Republic (…) to impose a law that the French do not want”summarized on France 2 Monday morning the “rebellious” deputy Clémentine Autain.
The presidential camp had meanwhile pinned a “a form of tragic repetition”. “There is no majority [pour voter la censure]they know it very well (…) it’s a game of postures, a fool’s game”mocked on Public Senate the deputy Renaissance Sylvain Maillard.
