Prime Minister’s ‘We Will Accelerate Reforms’ Message
French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne said in a statement that she was determined to accelerate other reforms after the pension reform.
Mass demonstrations broke out in France on March 16, following the government’s decision to pass the bill, which includes increasing the retirement age from 62 to 64, without voting.
Violence is taking place in many parts of the country between the police and the demonstrators, who intervened violently in the demonstrations.
More than 1,000 people have been detained in protests across the country since March 16.
The opposition and government had applied to the Constitutional Council to determine whether the reform was constitutional.
The Council yesterday approved the article of the draft law that raises the retirement age to 64, and rejected the 6th article in whole or in part.
The French took to the streets to protest the Council’s decision across the country, and more than 100 people were detained in the demonstrations in Paris.
The bill was signed by the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, and published in the Official Gazette.
