It’s a real slap! By rejecting his campaign, French President Emmanuel Macron lost his absolute majority in the National Assembly during the second round of legislative elections held on Sunday. On the other hand, the National Rally headed by Marine Le Pen, and the coalition of leftist parties, the New People’s Union, Environment and Socialist Union (NUPES), led by the radical left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, both announced forced entry into the National Assembly.
Even if it represented the first political force, with 246 deputies, the presidential party was renamed the party together! Too far from the 289 elected officials who would allow him to rule without an alliance. The president lost more than a hundred deputies in the battle, including some of his party’s founding executives, such as former Interior Minister Christophe Castaner and National Assembly Speaker, Richard Ferrand. Even the prime minister, Elizabeth Bourne, was elected in Calvados with only 52% of the vote. Never heard of a prime minister. Several defeated ministers in their constituencies will also have to leave their posts, such as the Minister of Health, Brigitte Bourguignon, and the Minister of Environmental Transition, Amelie de Montchalin.
This thunderbolt sounds like a genuine denial of the president and announces the risk of a political stalemate that will permanently oblige the government to form coalitions on the left and right according to the bills. Many observers speak of an Italian-style legislative scenario. A major reform of the presidential program, deferring retirement to 65, appears dead for now.
Embassav, Prime Minister Elizabeth Borne, described the situation as “unprecedented” and called for “the majority of measures to be built in.” […]. “There is no substitute for this gathering to ensure the stability of our country,” she said. According to her, “Multiple sensitivities must go together and the right compromises must be built in order to work in the service of France. The French invite us to work together for the country.”
While on everyone’s minds, party leader Christian Jacob immediately rejected the possibility of a presidential alliance with the sixty elected members of the right-wing Republican party Les Républicains. “We have campaigned in the opposition, we are in the opposition and we will remain in the opposition,” he said, although some of his aides are less assertive.
With 142 people elected, and failing to become prime minister as announced on his posters, Jean-Luc Mélenchon would lead the first opposition group. This will allow its elected officials to sit on several parliamentary committees, including the influential finance and defense committees.
The triumphant and sometimes condescending Melenchon “defeated” the presidential party. “It is the failure of Macron, and the moral failure of those who have given lessons to all,” he says. “While, for the first time in history, leading a left-wing coalition led by its most radical pole, Jean-Luc Mélenchon did not hesitate to invoke ‘this dying world’ and the ‘Great Uprising of history’ coming from The depths of what rebellious France is and revolutions.” Gathered at the Elysee Montmartre, his supporters sang at once International.
While it had no recognized group in the House, the National Rally multiplied the number of its deputies by ten to 89 elected, and even outnumbered the Republicans. From Hénin-Beaumont, in Nord-Pas-de-Calais, its president, Marine Le Pen, felt that she had achieved the three goals she had set herself: “Make Emmanuel Macron president of the minority; pursue the necessary political reorganization; constitute a decisive opposition group against the destroyers from above, macro, and from the bottom, the far left.” The President of the National Front, who was re-elected in her constituency, promised a “resolute and responsible opposition that respects institutions,” stressing that “only the compass of her country is the interest of France and the French people.”
Louis Elliott, Mayor of Perpignan and Vice President of RN rejoiced: “The glass ceiling is broken.” While it rejected any right-wing alliance, notably with the new Reconquête party led by Eric Zemmour, the RN received 89 elected representatives higher than La France insoumise (84), a movement that presented itself for this election. Allied with environmentalists, socialists and communists. Many are also wondering about the future of this alliance of the left, some of which predict its dissolution in the near future.
France has not known such a fragmented National Assembly since François Mitterrand’s second term in 1988. A time when political opposition was less radical. “Tonight, it all starts from scratch,” explained the dean of French political scientists Alain Duhamel on BFMTV. According to some, the country may be ungovernable. In the Council, the government will face strong opposition from both the right and the left. Not to forget the Senate, especially on the right, who must approve bills.
In this new political landscape, abstention remains the main party in France. Already historic in the first round, at 52.49%, it rose in the second round to 53.5%. A legislative campaign has rarely aroused so little interest. Between the two rounds, Emmanuel Macron did not campaign, preferring to go to Romania, Moldova and Ukraine, only calling for a “republican explosion” from the tarmac. He had never seen one like him.
“To test ungovernable France”, title figaro, whose editorial evokes a real “leap into the unknown”. distraught himself left for Release, Who talks about “a slap in the face”, while the daily the scientist It raises the risk of political paralysis. On the right as on the left, there are many who believe that it would be difficult to last five years with such a council and that a solution followed by new elections is not impossible.
