The New York Times: Ο Μακρόν για την αντιμετώπιση της συνταξιοδοτικής κρίσης

Macron to address pensions crisis
President Emmanuel Macron, facing turmoil over his plan to raise the retirement age in France, will today try to address the crisis. He will, officials say, portray the standoff as a battle between democratic institutions and the chaos of the street. He will stick with his current government and not dissolve Parliament or call new elections, they say.
No apology appears to be forthcoming for using a legal tool, Article 49.3 of the Constitution, to avoid a full parliamentary vote on a change that has split the country. This approach appears consistent with his chosen tactics on the pension overhaul.
While he has made some concessions, Macron has remained remote from France’s rolling anger. Most conspicuously, and to many inexplicably, after the government consulted extensively with unions up until January, he refused to negotiate with the union leader Laurent Berger, who had supported his earlier attempt at pension changes in 2019 but opposes him now.
Analysis: Macron knows three things: He will not be a candidate for re-election because a third consecutive term is not permitted; the opposition in Parliament is strong but irreconcilably divided between the far left and extreme right; and a large slice of French society supports his pension overhaul.
