72% of French people believe that it is not necessary to increase the legal retirement age to reform the pension system, according to a survey carried out by Odoxa-Backbone Consulting for Le Figaro.

Almost ten years later the latest reform of the pension systemthe French are a majority (55%) who do not want this debate to be revived, according to an Odoxa-Backbone Consulting poll for Le Figaro. Only supporters of Renaissance (84%) and Republicans (60%) want this reform to succeed. On both sides of the political spectrum, this rejection is particularly marked: only 21% of those close to the Insoumis and 29% of those of the National Rally want this reform to be relaunched.

Aborted in 2020 due to the coronavirus epidemicthe pension reform project carried by Édouard Philippe was a campaign promise by Emmanuel Macron in 2017. The unions were fiercely opposed to it, notably refusing to postpone the full retirement age to 64 instead of of 62.

On this subject, the French are 72% to judge that the system can be reformed without affecting the legal age of retirement. An opinion widely shared within the main political currents (85% among LFI and RN sympathizers, 82% among socialists and 76% among ecologists), with the exception again of majority support (40%) and Republicans (43%).

"Internet users often express even greater concern about the form than the substance“, underlines Véronique Reille Soult, president of Backbone Consulting, from an analysis on social networks. "The fear of a possible "forced passage" in particular arouses incomprehension while the current subjects of concern of Internet users mainly revolve around inflation.".

19% of French people ready to demonstrate

Moreover, the French believe very widely (77%) that Emmanuel Macron would be wrong to use an amendment to the social security finance bill (PLFSS) rather than a dedicated piece of legislation to carry out this reform. The use of article 49-3 of the Constitution – which makes it possible to engage the responsibility of the government on a text and therefore to pass by force – is also considered unacceptable by a large majority (72%).

While the left-wing parties have announced the organization of a "walk against the dear life» on October 16, many French people would support a protest movement against the pension plan, if it were to see the light of day. 19% say they would participate, and 48% would support demonstrations but not take part.

"The last time the executive wanted to attempt “lightning war” to pass the pension reform, the pandemic had come to cut it off. It was in February 2020, Edouard Philippe had then drawn the 49-3. Two and a half years later, the "make or break" could go wrong for the government of Elisabeth Borne“Warn moreover Gaël Sliman, president of Odoxa, and Céline Bracq, director general of the institute.

(This survey was carried out on a sample of 1005 French people representative of the French population aged 18 and over, interviewed by internet from September 20 to 21, 2022.)
