France: Five things we keep from the French elections

Two months after the re-election of Emanuel Macron, the French president's party emerges virtually defeated in the second round of parliamentary elections held on Sunday: it will be deprived of the absolute majority in the National Assembly and will face a "tsunami" during the Marin Lepen, the unprecedented advance of the far right.

The following are five elements that, according to APE-MPE, are worth keeping in mind for the election process of the 577 members of the lower Parliament of France.

"Slap" for Emanuel Macron

The center-liberal presidential faction Ensemble ("Together") is limited to a relative majority in the National Assembly.

According to polling institutes, it will lack at least forty seats to reach the 289 it needed to govern alone. Unprecedented negative performance: this is the smallest relative majority in the 5th Republic, ie since 1958.

If these results are confirmed, the question arises above all whether and to what extent Mr Macron will be able to govern and advance the reforms he has promised, especially in pensions.

The left official opposition

The leader of the radical left, Jean-Luc Melanson, did not win the bet to impose cohabitation on Emanuel Macron, in other words, to force him to name him the new prime minister.

But he managed to turn the left into the official opposition, as he is expected to secure around 150 seats. The NUPES alliance, which brings together socialists, environmentalists, communists and the radical left, has crushed several figures in Mr Macron's faction and prevented the president from securing an absolute majority.

"We achieved the political goal we set less than a month ago," which was to defeat Mr Macron, Mr Melanson said, accusing the head of state of "arrogance".

The far right comes out

His goal was to reach at least 15 deputies to form a parliamentary group in the French National Assembly. According to forecasts, however, the National Alarm may occupy six times as many seats.

Marin Le Pen, who was re-elected in Pas de Calais (north), may have 80 to 95 deputies - ten to fifteen times more than today. The unlucky candidate in the second round of the presidential election promised to exercise "strict" and "responsible" opposition.

The defeated ministers and executives

Many significant figures of the presidential faction suffered painful defeats: the president of the outgoing National Assembly Richard Ferran, the leader of the parliamentary group of Christoph Castaner ...

Three ministers, Amelie de Monsallen (Ecological Transition), Brigitte Bourguignon (Health) and Justin Benin (Maritime and Shipping), had the same fate and are expected to leave the government's denominations, according to France. .

High abstention

As in the first round, more than half of the voters did not go to the polls in the second. The abstention increased even more, it is estimated that it ranged between 53.5 and 54%. It may not have broken the 2017 record (57.36%), but it is estimated that it will be the second highest recorded.
