Pensions: Edouard Philippe will speak at the end of the week

While Elisabeth Borne presents her pension reform on Tuesday, Edouard Philippe, who has never hidden his positions, has until the end of the week to speak on the subject.

A speech is planned. According to our colleagues at Le Parisien, former Prime Minister Edouard Philippe is expected to talk about pension reform by the end of the week.

This text, presented this Tuesday, January 10, by Elisabeth Borne, has always interested the President of the Horizons party. Although he has never hidden his desire for discretion, he has taken a stand on several occasions.

Edouard Philippe for a late departure

As a reminder, last October the mayor of Le Havre supported the idea of ​​retiring at 67.

A year earlier, he had campaigned for “a postponement of the age of majority to 65, 66 or 67”. An idea he later gave up. “If you’re 65 and it works, it suits me very well,” he said.

This Tuesday, Elisabeth Borne’s government is due to present its pension reform with a proposal that is already causing a stir: raising the statutory retirement age to 64 with an accelerated extension of the contribution period, which would previously rise to 43 in Horizon 2035.
