Olivier Faure (PS) and Fabien Roussel (PCF), reunited Tuesday at the time of a meeting in Haute-Garonne, each rejected the proposal of censure motion of the Insoumis against the government for its plan of pension reform.
Tuesday, the leader of the rebellious deputies Jean-Luc Mélenchon proposed to the socialists and communists the deposit of a motion of common censure.
"We will not sign a censure motion at this stage when the debate has not started," assured the First Secretary of the Socialist Party Olivier Faure in the evening, a few minutes before holding a joint meeting in Tournefeuille, near Toulouse, with in particular the National Secretary of the Communist Party Fabien Roussel.
"We want to demonstrate in this debate, including with the majority, that this reform is an improvised reform and which will be the cause of immense regressions", justified Mr. Faure.
"At the end of this debate, if the government does not hear anything, indeed it may be necessary to go as far as the motion of censure, but as the completion of a demonstration and not as a prerequisite," he said. he says.
"We will demonstrate that this reform is a dangerous reform, a reform which in truth poses a multitude of problems and which is a reform which is not financed by the right means, which does not answer the questions which are asked today to the injustices that remain, "he added.
"We are going to make both our proposals and at the same time show how this project does not answer anything," he said.
Same refusal to respond favorably to Mr. Mélenchon on the part of Mr. Roussel.
"We told him that today we prefer to be in the mobilization with the employees to demand the withdrawal of the Macron reform," he said.
"We do not project ourselves into parliamentary work and we hope that the government will withdraw its law, and that it will not present it to parliament," continued Mr. Roussel who called on the French to mobilize.
However, according to Mr. Roussel, "it will be time to study this type of procedure if ever the text of the law came to parliament, which is not the case today".
Messrs. Faure and Roussel held a joint meeting Tuesday evening with officials or elected officials of EELV, Génération.s, my Republican and Socialist Left, and my Democratic and Socialist Left and Together.
