Is a compromise possible? French PM ready to negotiate with opposition and unions KXan 36 Daily News

Born will meet with leaders of political parties, and also intends to resume dialogue with unions on labor issues. The prime minister added that the meetings will start on April 3 and last for three weeks, AFP said.

President Emmanuel Macron has ruled out canceling or postponing a reform that would raise the retirement age from 62 to 64. He instructed the prime minister to find new support in parliament after the government failed to get enough votes to pass the bill.

When it became clear that the government could not be sure of having the necessary votes, Bourne pushed the bill through the National Assembly without a vote, using article 49.3 of the French constitution. This led to two votes of no confidence, one of which the government won by just nine votes, and provoked a furious reaction in the streets.

Elizabeth Bourne, who became prime minister in May 2022, has already used Article 49.3 11 times. But on Sunday, March 26, she announced that from now on she would not use the article of the constitution outside of financial matters.

The protest movements became the most important internal crisis of Macron’s second term. Police and protesters regularly clash in Paris and other cities across the country. The unions have set for Tuesday, March 28, the tenth day of nationwide protests against the pension law, after the most violent clashes with the police that occurred last Thursday.

The head of one of the five largest unions in France, the CFDT, Laurent Berger, last week suggested to Macron that the law be suspended for six months to find a possible compromise.
