French President Macron wins parliamentary election

Messalina Adamo | 19 Giugno, 2017, 02:01

President Emmanuel Macron's En Marche! party has emerged victorious in France's parliamentary elections.

The party was formed just over a year ago, and half of its candidates have little or no political experience.

"Tonight, the collapse of the Socialist Party is beyond doubt", Jean-Christophe Cambadelis said after announcing he would step down as head of the Socialist Party.

While French voters have handed past presidents large majorities in parliament, what's different this time is that Macron's party is splitting - and therefore weakening - the opposition.

Macron's year-old Republic on the Move (REM) and their allies were set to win between 355 and 425 seats in the 577-seat National Assembly, according to partial results after the second round of an election in which many high-profile figures were thrown out. The ministry said the far-right National Front was in third place with almost 10 percent followed by the Socialists with 6.2 percent.


Le Pen's right wing Front National party garnered 13.2% of the vote last Sunday and is expected to take between one and four seats. But his alliance with the French Communist Party could end up giving them more seats than Le Pen's National Front - even if her party gets more votes. The Interior Ministry reported at 15:00 local time that the turnout was the lowest since 1997, and official data showed only 35.33 percent of the electorate turned up to cast their ballot by 17:00.

However a low turnout could damage this mandate, after a 49 per cent turnout during the first round of voting.

Far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen is voting in the depressed northern town of Henin-Beaumont, where she is running for a parliament seat. Experts partly blamed voter fatigue following the May election of Macron, plus voter disappointment with politics.

With its allies from MoDem centrist party, it is represented by 360 lawmakers, sparing the need to rely on other movements to pass legislation on labour codes, cut public expenditure by billions of euros, raise taxes on consumption and wealthy pensioners and invest more in training and innovative sectors.

The center-right Republicans Party is expected to form the second biggest faction in the lower house. Opinion polls before the vote had projected Macron could win as many as 470 seats.
