French parliament adopts controversial economic reforms

Shops in Paris tourist zones would be able to open every Sunday under proposed new legislationFrance’s parliament adopted a key package of economic reforms Friday, after an agonising passage in which the government forced the measures through the house without a vote three times. Prime Minister Manuel Valls on Thursday again resorted to a little-used constitutional procedure to push through the reforms — which are seen as vital to energise France’s sluggish economy — without lawmakers voting. The Socialist government survived two confidence votes in less than six months over the move, but this time the opposition did not submit a censure motion, and the law is now considered formally adopted.
