About 7 out of 10 French people polled want the vote of confidence in the current government, after approving an unpopular pension reform, to end in his resignation.
This is reported by BFMTV.
According to Elabe research, 68% of those polled want MPs to collect enough votes for a vote of no confidence in Elizabeth Borne's government after he backed President Emmanuel Macron's proposal to use a special constitutional procedure to "bypass" parliament to approve pension reform without a final vote in the National.
Among those who want the resignation of the government are 51% of those voters who voted for Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the presidential elections.
Support for the resignation of the government is high among all age groups and professions, although the numbers vary.
As you know, on March 20, deputies of the National Assembly - the lower house of the parliament - must vote for the confidence of the government after they agreed with Macron's idea to use a special procedure to bypass the parliament to approve the pension reform, applying Article 49.3 of the Constitution, since there were doubts about the votes in the assembly. that's enough.
This procedure also involves MPs voting on a motion of no confidence in the government - which is due to take place on Monday.
According to forecasts, as of Monday evening, 261 deputies were ready to vote for no confidence in the government, while 287 votes were needed.
The votes of the right-wing "Republicans", who included pension reform plans in their political program, may be decisive.
