According to the official writings of the French Sputnik news agency, the Constitutional Council of France yesterday agreed to increase the retirement age in this country to 64 years.
According to the announcement published by this media, the French Constitutional Council approved the controversial pension age reform bill, according to which the retirement age will be increased from 62 to 64 years.
The French Constitutional Council has also completely rejected the request of the country’s left parties to hold a referendum on these reforms.
With the approval of the pension age reforms in France, this issue is considered a passed law and it must be implemented from September 1 of this year.
Before these events, the unions had announced that they would continue their protest if the French Constitutional Council approves the reforms desired by Macron today.
Last week, while French President Emmanuel Macron was on a 3-day visit to China, protesters set fire to his favorite restaurant in Paris to approve the law on increasing the retirement age.
A few weeks ago, the French government approved a law without the approval of the country’s parliament, which, if implemented, will increase the retirement age from 62 to 64. A law that has faced massive protests from French labor unions.
