Legislative elections for the renewal of the National Assembly (French parliament) are less than two months away, with the two rounds scheduled for June 12 and 19. The voting system is complex. In each constituency, in the second round, all the candidates who obtained at least 12.5% of the votes in the first round will participate, which allows fights in three or even four.
Parliament is an important element of French politics, and a majority gives the president the option of appointing a prime minister to his liking and allows him to pass the desired bills more easily. Without a majority, the margin of maneuver of a French president is significantly reduced.
Macron won a second term at the Elysée Palace last night and became the first president to be re-elected by a majority in parliament. Macron certainly wants the majority he enjoys to keep even after the June election, but the equation seems complex.
Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who urged his constituents to vote against Le Pen in the second round, wasted no time in criticizing Macron and his party immediately after the results were displayed – virtually opening the “round three” campaign.
Left-wing candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon (La France Insoumise) was very close to reaching the second round of the presidential election. He missed the second round with just 420,000 votes.
Marine Le Pen also focused her attention on future elections in her post-election speech. Le Pen said he was committed to leading his party’s next election battle in the June legislative elections, saying French voters had shown they wanted another force to counterbalance Macron’s power as president.
Far-right candidate Eric Zemmour also spoke about the parliamentary election. Recalling that “Le Pen’s name” had been defeated for the eighth time, he proposed a “coalition” on the right, ahead of the June scheduled election.
Despite the very poor results in the presidential election, the traditional Socialist Party and Republican parties have a chance of winning a decent number of seats in the parliamentary elections. In the parliamentary elections, as in Romania, the parties with tradition have large structures in the territory that help them.
Macron’s La République en Marche (LaREM) party will most likely get a good result, but not enough for a majority. And a coalition is the most likely scenario. The moderate wing of the Republicans seems to be the best partner.
