France’s constitutional court approved pension reforms for President Emmanuel Macron, rejecting a proposal to hold a referendum on the matter on Friday.

The Constitutional Council ratified the bill amendment in legislation to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64 after nearly three months of protests against the measure.

The court overturned six measures not considered essential to the essence of the reform and rejected a request by the left to hold a referendum on an alternative pension law that keeps the retirement age at 62.
