About 20,000 amendments, including nearly 13,000 from LFI, were tabled for the examination of the pension reform in the hemicycle of the National Assembly from Monday, AFP learned from parliamentary sources on Thursday.
This figure is below the 41,000 amendments tabled in 2020 during the previous attempt to reform pensions, and far from the 2006 record: 137,000 amendments during the debate on the privatization of GDF.
Even if certain amendments could be deemed inadmissible, their overall number makes it uncertain whether the text will be examined in its entirety from February 6 to 17, before it is transmitted to the Senate. And it will not fail to fuel the trial in obstruction that the presidential camp is already doing on the left.
The Nupes coalition is particularly pounding article 7 devoted to the postponement of the legal age of departure to 64 years.
In total, LFI filed nearly 13,000 amendments, the environmentalists 2,300, the socialists 1,400 and the communists 1,160. The colo group, for example, wants to rename the text of the bill against free time.
The LRs – 1,250 amendments – could play a decisive role and have high expectations of long careers. They propose a duration of 43 years of contribution for all those who started working before the age of 21, against 44 years for some in the current reform. And are demanding a review clause for an initial assessment of the effects of the reform in 2027.
The RN deputies – 200 amendments – are fighting the postponement of the legal age and want to discuss in particular the arduousness and measures for the birth rate.
In the majority, the Renaissance elected officials filed more than 400 amendments, Horizons and the Modem 80 each.
On the left wing of Renaissance, Barbara Pompili and several elected officials are asking to mitigate the effects of the reform for future retirees born between 1961 and 1963, the first generations to suffer brutal increases in the duration of contributions.
Others like Fabrice Le Vigoureux would like to allow early retirement for people who have at least eight quarters more than the required contribution period.
The MoDem is also calling for a review clause in 2027 and measures for women.

Some 600 million euros are added to finance the extension of pay for night work in health establishments, and 150 million are planned to accompany contractual negotiations with liberal health professionals.
Another government amendment wants to validate additional quarters of contribution for parents who have lost a baby before four years.
The timetable for examining the pension reform is constrained by the legislative vehicle chosen by the government: an amending budget for social security (PLFSSR).
The exchanges in the hemicycle start Monday and must end on February 17 at midnight, so that the text then passes to the Senate.
After the parliamentary break from February 20 to 26, the upper house dominated by the right will examine the text adopted by the National Assembly, or failing that, the initial text of the government, modified by the amendments that the Assembly will have had time to vote and which the executive supports.
