The leader of the French National Rally, Marine Le Pen, has said that Prime Minister Elisabeth Born should resign after the adoption of the pension reform.
“This is the observation of the total failure of Emmanuel Macron (president of France – editor’s note). It is his reform, the only one he defended during the campaign, “said Le Pen.
The politician also announced the intention of the National Assembly to adopt a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister.
“It’s her failure. I don’t see how you can stay in the office. She has to go… It’s a slap in the face to democracy, which we’ve seen enough already,” Le Pen said.
The leader of the right recalled that since last autumn, Born 11 times had resorted to article 49.3 of the Constitution, which makes it possible to adopt a law without a vote in parliament. The same thing happened today, March 16th. As a result, an increase in the retirement age from 62 to 64 has been announced. Meanwhile, local residents continue to strike on the streets of France.
