While social mobilization is not weakening with a new day of demonstrations on March 15, the coming hours could seal the future of millions of retirees. However, the joint committee still has to agree on several thorny points in order to find common ground. Explanations.
During this decisive week, the pension reform desired by Emmanuel Macron could finally be voted on. After difficult debates in the National Assembly and a favorable vote in the Senate, all eyes are now on the joint committee meeting today at the Palais Bourbon. After two and a half months of debate, the joint joint committee’s mission is to find a way out of the endless discussions around the pension reform. Currently, seven deputies and seven senators are meeting to decide on the future of the country and to propose a common text. They will, in fact, have to agree on each article, then submit the bill selected to the votes of the Senate and the National Assembly this Thursday.
In this case, the situation is special since, as a rule, the mixed parity committee bases itself on two versions of the text, each voted on by the two chambers. Here, only the text of the Senate will be used since the National Assembly failed to complete the examination of the text in time. Favorable to the government, the composition of the mixed parity commission is divided between the presidential camp and the pro-reform senatorial majority. They thus have ten incumbent seats out of fourteen voters. Several points nevertheless remain essential to orchestrate and the discussions should be animated to decide on the future of long careers or even the conditions of the CDI seniors. Discover, in our slideshow, the points that can still evolve in a joint committee.
