The right is sticking to its positions. If the senatorial majority, consisting of the Republicans (LR) and the centrist Union (UC), during its consideration in the Senate hardened the bill that paved the way for unemployment insurance reform, it is not to let go of the ballast under the joint mixed committee (CMP), which will take place on Wednesday 9 November, she warns. With five members out of the fourteen that make it up – seven deputies and seven senators – it has as many parliamentarians as the presidential coalition.
Two weeks after Emmanuel Macron, France 2 called for “an alliance” rightly, evocative in particular labor reforms LR deputies and senators know that they are in a strong position when it comes to negotiating this text.
