A motion of no confidence has been submitted to the Parliament against the French President Emmanuel Macron’s government.
The no-confidence motion against Macron comes after violent protests led to the introduction of a controversial pension reform bill without a debate in the lower house.
This week, French Prime Minister Elisabeth Bourne used powers under Article 49.3 of the constitution to announce the controversial pension reform bill by decree, sparking protests across the country.
Given the crisis, the French opposition has submitted a no-confidence motion against the government, hoping that the controversial law raising the retirement age from 62 to 64 will be repealed.
Legislative Assembly member Bertrand Pancher, who submitted the no-confidence motion with the support of independent candidates and left-wing parliamentarians, said that only the vote on the no-confidence motion will get us out of this political crisis.
It should be noted that in order for the motion of no confidence to be successful, the support of more than half of the members of the right-wing Republicans of the opposition is needed, due to which the success of the motion seems difficult.
