It’s a return to school that promises to be eventful in the hemicycle of the National Assembly. The left alliance (Nupes) approaches its return to the benches of the assembly more motivated than ever, determined to make forget the internal polemics by imposing the debate on the social reforms.
On the left, the reform of pensions and unemployment insurance fall steeply. Mired in business with Adrien Quatennens and Julien Bayou, Nupes, which brings together deputies from La France insoumise, the Socialist Party, environmentalists and the Communist Party, hopes to renew itself in a duel against the government. “I would like to recall that two years ago, we managed to win against the government on the issue of pension reform and that the last time there were 17 parliamentarians”, underlines Mathilde Panot, the president of the rebellious group ( LFI) to the National Assembly. For the member, the objective is clear: to filibuster.
“At 17 parliamentarians, we had tabled 22,000 amendments. We are now 75 rebellious in the hemicycle. And even 151 if we take all the Nupes deputies.” But within the Nupes, some deputies, more moderate, want to “remain credible” in their words. So they promise, “for every government bill, we’ll table a counter-bill.”
“We must oppose but above all propose” concluded a socialist deputy. And the duel with the government will begin this Monday evening, with the opening of the debates on unemployment insurance.
