Official results: Macron will not have a parliamentary majority, and reforms are likely to be blocked

Alliance Together! (center) won 245 seats in the National Assembly, the lower house of the Paris Parliament, which has a total of 577 members. The pre-presidential political party is thus below the 289-seat majority, according to the results announced during the night from Sunday to Monday by the French Ministry of the Interior. Until now, the presidential coalition had a majority in the National Assembly.

The left-wing coalition of the New People’s Ecological and Social Union (NUPES), led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon, won 131 seats, and the far-right National Mobilization (RN) party, former presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, won 89 seats. . The Republican Party (LR, center-right) will have 61 members in the National Assembly.

The result of the parliamentary elections will block the rise of President Emmanuel Macron, who obtained a new mandate two months ago. The government of Elisabeth Borne, installed by President Macron immediately after the presidential victory, risks being changed quickly, and some allies of the leader of the Elysée Palace evoke the idea of ​​dissolving the Parliament and convening a new parliamentary election in a year.

“This situation poses a risk to our country, given the challenges we face nationally and internationally. We will work from tomorrow to build a parliamentary majority,” Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne told BBC News.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon, leader of the Left Coalition for the New People’s Ecological and Social Union (NUPES), and far-right politician Marine Le Pen welcomed the election result.

“Emmanuel Macron faces the risk of political paralysis,” headlines Le Monde. “The presidential coalition is far from an absolute majority, a nightmare scenario for Emmanuel Macron, who is unable to implement political projects,” notes the daily Le Monde.

Politicians in the presidential coalition fear a total political “paralysis” and are touting the idea of ​​dissolving parliament and calling early parliamentary elections in a year’s time if President Macron fails to build a parliamentary majority in the meantime.

“Legislative elections 2022: Emmanuel Macron faces France’s ungovernable test. Defeated at the polls, the president does not have a majority in the National Assembly. comments, in turn, the daily Le Figaro.
