In an interview with Le Parisien, Olivia Gregoire, a government spokesperson, stated that the purchasing power bill would be presented to Council of Ministers on June 29 and then to Parliament “in the course”. She stated that purchasing power would be the subject of a communication to the Council of Ministers prior to the legislative elections (of June 12, 19 and 19, editor’s notes) in order “to present the major measures”.

She added that a draft law as well as an amending bill of 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 backpedaled, a source from government explained that the two texts would be presented after the legislative elections. The reserve period meant that there would not be any specific amount disclosed.

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 the “tariff protection” on oil and gas prices. electricity.

Olivia Gregoire strongly criticised the Nupes as well, describing it as “a constituency deal, not a agreement of conviction”. Jean-Luc Melenchon doesn’t want a majority in order to move the country forward but a minority to stop it,” she said, adding that La France Insoumise leader “has been accumulating mandates since 35 years”.

“At the end the day, what’s his balance sheet?” Nothing. It seeks to exist, but not to rule,” she stated. Olivia Gregoire also assured us that the pace of reform was being discussed in relation to pensions and that it “is not a totem nor taboo”.
