PS spokesman Boris Vallaud denounced a "mistreated parliament" on Tuesday during the debate on pension reform and accused Richard Ferrand, the president of the National Assembly, of not "defending" it.
"By accepting this calendar, by accepting this indigent impact study, (Richard Ferrand) does not defend Parliament, he does not defend the right of French women and men to have a quality parliamentary debate", deplored the deputy of Landes on Public Sénat.
"This is how it has been for two and a half years, Parliament has been mistreated, we have mistreated social dialogue for two years, we are about to mistreat the parliamentary debate, but who is mistreated in the end? French women and men ", he criticized.
According to him, "Emmanuel Macron and the government team" are "handymen who confuse reform and liquidation", "for whom ultimately reform has become a mantra".
"This reform, today, whether we are for or against the substance, the reality that we observe is that we are going into the wall, that the government is unable to carry out this reform, everything is approximate, everything is partial or partial, "accused the Socialist deputy, referring to the" calamitous "opinion of the Council of State.
The left deputies (PS, PCF, LFI and certain elected officials of the group Liberties and territories) released on Monday a letter in which they asked "solemnly" to Richard Ferrand (LREM) to defend the honor of the Assembly and deplore the having only "four days to examine this major text", between its presentation last Friday in the Council of Ministers and the start of discussions in special committee.
