Pensions: the financial balance of the reform at the heart of the final parliamentary negotiations
The government has its eyes on two counters: the uncertain number of right-wing deputies ready to vote for his reform pensions and the cost of the measures that the deputies and senators are preparing to include on Wednesday in the final text called to be submitted to the vote of the two assemblies on Thursday. Seven deputies and seven senators meet this Wednesday in a joint committee (CMP) to agree on a final version of the reform.
“Improving the system without balancing it financially would be irresponsible,” warned the Minister of Labor, Olivier Dussopt, on CNews on Tuesday. Knowing that these parliamentarians could increase the bill for the measures supposed to cushion the shock of the postponement of the legal age from 62 to 64, generating new revenue “is not a forbidden debate”, continued the minister, clearly opening the door to concessions.
