After four days of lively and often heated debates, the National Assembly adopted the second part of the measures in support of purchasing power, with contortions which still aroused the anger of the oppositions RN and Nupes on Wednesday.
The deputies voted at first reading this rectified draft budget for 2022 by 293 votes against 146, and 17 abstentions. The Republicans, to whom the executive has repeatedly given satisfaction, supported the text.
The deputies of the National Rally, on the other hand, did not take part in the vote: they left the hemicycle in protest against the way in which the Assembly reversed an additional revaluation of 500 million euros for retirement pensions , approved a few hours earlier.
The government asked for a second deliberation to cancel a measure it was fighting, sparking a heated debate, with virulent exchanges between the Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire, the Nupes and the RN.
