After Edouard Philippe’s announcement of a moratorium on Tuesday (December 4th), journalist Nathalie Saint-Cricq now confirms the abandonment of the fuel tax increase that was to take place in January 2019.
“It’s absolutely definitive, it was decided by Emmanuel Macron,” she said. “There has been a bit of vagueness in the last two days, because we talked about a moratorium first, and then a suspension. This was considered a little too vague and not acceptable by by the ‘yellow vests.’ So tonight Emmanuel Macron was clear saying ‘the tax is purely and simply buried.”
