French government survives no-confidence vote

    WORLD  30 September 2023 - 16:50

    The National Assembly majority rejected another no-confidence vote in the government of Elisabeth Bourne, which was put forward by the opposition.

    As Prime reports, this follows from the post of the lower house of the French parliament in the social network X.

    On September 27, Bourne held the bill on the budget for 2024 without a vote in Parliament, for the 12th time applying the article of the constitution 49.3 allowing to do so. The document envisaged an increase in the budgets of the security agencies, the Ministry of Education and environmental changes. It is also designed to reduce France's public debt to less than three per cent of GDP by 2027. MPs booed the prime minister's announcement and hurriedly left the chamber.

    "The no-confidence vote ... was not passed. The required majority is 289 (deputies). 193 voted in favour," the report said.

    According to French media, the vote of no confidence petition was put forward by the NUPES (New People's Ecological and Social Union) coalition. The rejected initiative was the 18th attempt by the opposition to pass a vote of no confidence in the Bourne government in almost a year and a half of her work at the head of the French cabinet.
