The Prime Minister of France, Élisabeth Borne, has announced that the French Government is going to propose expand the criteria that would facilitate early retirement for quell mass protests against his decision to raise the minimum retirement age to 64 by 2030.

In an interview with the ‘Journal du Dimanche’, Borne, who at the time declared his initial decision as “non-negotiable”now proposes that whoever started contributing between the ages of 20 and 21 can retire at age 63, one year before the minimum age.

The government will start this coming monday the debate on his proposal, one day before the new protests and work stoppages declared by the French unions.

“What we are looking for are agreements. I want to find a majority. We have been working for this for months,” Borne told the Sunday newspaper.

Article 49.3 of the French Constitution, used on up to seven occasions by the Executive to give the ‘green light’, among others, to the Social Security financing law, allows pass a bill without a vote.

Government estimates indicate that this new approach would affect some 30,000 people a yearat a cost that would oscillate between 600 and 1000 million euros.
