The French authorities will pass without a vote in parliament a law on raising the retirement age, the project of which has provoked protests in the country.

The AFP agency reports that France is ready to pass without prior vote a law to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64 years. The news of this earlier caused a wave of protests in the country.

A number of experts have expressed the view that the adoption of the reform jeopardizes the current positions of French President Emmanuel Macron. As a result of popular unrest, life in the European republic practically came to a standstill. Schools, transport, industrial enterprises ceased to function.

However, as the news shows with the peremptory adoption of the pension reform, the French government not only is not ready to listen to the opinion of the majority of citizens, but does not seem to enhance its image either. Many analysts feel that the country’s current government has gone bankrupt.

It is because of this that French leader Macron risks being labeled deaf or becoming a lame duck. Arguments on this point were previously given by the “Regional Chief”.
