In an interview with Le Parisien, Olivia Gregoire, a government spokesperson, stated that the bill on purchasing power would be presented to Council of Ministers on June 29 and then to parliament "in process".
She stated that purchasing power would be the subject of a communication to the Council of Ministers prior to the legislative elections [of Juni 12 and 19], editor's note] in order to present the major measures. She added that a draft law as well as an amending bill on finance will be presented to the Assembly by the Council of Ministers on 29 June.
Olivia Gregoire had, on behalf of government, suggested the May 25th idea of a "first bill (...)" that would be adopted by Council of Ministers prior to the legislative elections. After the government backtracked, a source from government explained that the two texts would then be presented "after" the legislative elections. The reserve period obliges that there be no exact amount revealed.
Elisabeth Borne explained Friday that the first texts the deputies would have to look at were intended to "continue containing this surge in energy prices", with particular the extension "tariff shield" to the prices of oil and gas. electricity.
Olivia Gregoire, like the Prime Minister, strongly criticised the Nupes. She saw it as "a constituency agreement and not a conviction agreement".
Jean-Luc Melenchon doesn't want a majority in order to move the country forward but a minority in order to stop it," she said, adding that the leader rebellious France has been "accumulating mandates for 35+ years".
What is his balance sheet at the end? Nothing. It exists to serve, not to rule.
Olivia Gregoire also spoke out on pensions and assured that the pace of reform was being discussed. This pace is "not a totem nor taboo".
