I said that people couldn’t tell people why the bill was important
In an interview on March 22, President Emmanuel Macron had said, “I have no regrets about this bill.” For the good of the country, we have to be here. Elizabeth Born will not leave her job as prime minister. I’m only sad that I couldn’t explain to the French why they needed this bill. After Corona, inflation has gone up in the country. This is why this bill is important.
The government won the vote of no confidence by nine votes
Two motions of no confidence were brought against the government in Parliament earlier on March 20. The Macron government got both of these ideas passed. One of these, though, was won by the government by only 9 votes. On the other hand, when the bill passed in Parliament, it looked like it was a law. Under the bill, France raised the age at which people could retire from 64 to 66.
Without voting, the bill was passed
On March 16, Prime Minister Elizabeth Born got the bill passed in the National Assembly of France without a vote. She did this by using constitutional power. The PM used Article 49.3, which says that if there is no majority, the government can pass the bill without a vote. After this, the leader of the opposition, Marine Le Penn, asked for a vote of no confidence in Emmanuel Macron’s government.

According to a story on “France 24,” the decision was made to raise the age at which people can retire under the new pension plan. Under this plan, the minimum number of years of work needed to get a full pension has also been lengthened. Prime Minister Elizabeth Born said that people will have to work for a total of 43 years to get a full pension from the new pension plan starting in 2027. Up until now, the required number of years of service was 42.
The government says that it is a key way to protect the share-out pension system in France. The government says that the number of people who are working and those who are retired is going down quickly. Because of this, the age at which people can quit is being thought about. Most European countries have raised the age at which people can retire. In Italy and Germany, you have to be 67 years old to retire. In Spain, it is 65 years. In Britain, you can retire at age 66.
At the same time, the pension reform bill in France is very important to the French people. This is because the National Registration Council fought for a long time to get this rule passed after the Second World War. Before the pension reform bill was passed in 1995 and 2010, there were protests.
