French pension reforms: Macron ‘won on the parliamentary side’ but he lost ‘politically’

French President Emmanuel Macron on Wednesday said he was prepared to accept unpopularity as a consequence of imposing a controversial pensions reform that has sparked uproar and mass protests. Macron, in an interview with the TF1 and France 2 TV channels, said his government will aim to bring France back to normal “as soon as possible”, speaking two days after his government barely survived a no-confidence vote. For more, FRANCE 24 is joined by French political scientist Jean-Christophe Gallien.
