The government of French President Emmanuel Macron will face two motions of no confidence presented this Friday in the National Assembly as response to his approval of the pension reform by decree, bypassing the vote of the deputies.
The first motion has been signed 91 deputies multi-party and headed by the small centrist group Libertades Independientes, Overseas and Territories (LIOT), has announced its president, Bertrand Pancher.
It has not received written support, however, from any MP from the conservative LR party, whose support will be needed at the time of the vote for it to succeed.
The second motion of no confidence has been formalized by the leader of the extreme right, Marine LePenand has received the support of the other 87 deputies of his party, the National Association (RN).
Le Pen, who has made it known that he will vote not only for his own, but also for any other, even if it is from the left, to overthrow the Executive of the Prime Minister, Élisabeth Borne, explained in a statement that his objective is to annul the adoption of the “unfair” pension reform.
The regulations of the National Assembly establish that it is necessary to wait at least 48 hours between the presentation of a motion of censure and its debate and vote, so that -in the absence of a decision from the Board of the chamber- at the earliest starting Sunday.
An absolute majority is needed to overthrow the governmentwhich means gathering 289 voteswhich at the moment are 287 due to the fact that there are several vacant seats.
