French Elections: Macron loses majority in Parliament 


President Emmanuel Macron has lost the majority in Parliament of the French National Assembly in legislative elections.

According to reports “not less than two months after he was re-elected president, Macron has lost control of the French National Assembly following a strong performance by a left alliance and the far-right.

“He had called on voters to deliver a solid majority. But his centrist coalition lost dozens of seats in an election that has left French politics fragmented.

“The prime minister he had only recently appointed, Elisabeth Borne, said the situation was unprecedented.

“A storm broke over Paris as she returned to her Matignon residence from a long meeting at the presidential Élysée palace to say that modern France had never seen a National Assembly like this one.

“This situation represents a risk for our country, given the risks we’re facing nationally and internationally,” she said. “We will work as of tomorrow to build a working majority.”  That seems a stretch when the two other biggest groups in the Assembly are not remotely interested in collaboration

Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire was adamant that France was not ungovernable, but said it was going to require a lot of imagination. Far-left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon was enjoying his success in bringing together mainstream parties from the left with Communists and Greens into an alliance called Nupes.”
