THE CHEKING PROCESS – After a first rejection, the Constitutional Council must render a decision on Tuesday on the second version of the RIP requested by the left.
Once again, the fate of the Shared Initiative Referendum (RIP) is in the hands of the Constitutional Council. Written by the left, the text studied rue de Montpensier aims to organize a referendum on the legal retirement age, which the executive has postponed to 64 with its reform. Filed for the first time, the request has already been rejected by the Elders on April 14th. Anticipating this failure, a second text, more “secure” in legal terms according to the boss of the PS senators, Patrick Kanner, had then been filed. The decision is expected this Wednesday, May 3, but does it really have a chance of succeeding?
