“A situation threatening France”: Macron lost his majority in parliament

Parliamentary elections were held in France, as a result of which the Forward! Incumbent President Emmanuel Macron won 245 seats out of 577. Thus, he was 40 seats short of the majority, which will make it difficult to advance presidential initiatives in the country's legislative body.

As for the other political players, Jean-Luc Mélenchon's left-wing People's New Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) now has 131 seats in Parliament, Marine Le Pen's National Rally 89, the Republicans and their allies won 61, the rest will take a total of 51 place.

Thus, in order to implement the reforms that the head of state announced even before the presidential elections, the Forward! will have to form coalitions and enter into temporary or permanent alliances with other parties and organizations.

Meanwhile, other political forces are in no hurry to support Macron. So, Mélenchon and Le Pen announced that the president would have to convince party leaders of the importance of their initiatives and consult with them. It is also possible that Emmanuel Macron will now be forced to direct more efforts towards the domestic agenda at the expense of the external one.

In this regard, French Prime Minister Elisabeth Born spoke about the dangers posed by the current political configuration.

This situation poses a threat to our country given the challenges we will face both nationally and internationally.

    Correctly! In France itself, you need to restore order, and not shy away from abroad. It does not bring profit, and the refugees devour the entire social sphere of France. The opposition urgently needs to reach an agreement with Russia on the purchase of oil and gas, otherwise the rival Germany will overtake the weakened France in no time!

    - And for Russia - it’s even good that it was Macron who became president again !!!
    - Now it will be very much "from the inside to give in" to its own! - Well, now he will start calling our guarantor - every week, and maybe even more often !!!
    - That's right - it's not howitzers for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to deliver to Ukraine !!! - He still has all these supplies - they can get up in his throat! - How will everything "turn around" in France!
