France's Macron to reshuffle govt after huge parliament win

Parmenio Sano | 21 Giugno, 2017, 10:13

With the majority, the President will be able to have a relatively smooth presidency without much interference when changing French laws. Sunday's vote was marked by the historically low turnout rate of 42 percent, which is below the expectations of the first round.

The opposition remains firm in its opposition, however. The Socialist Party, which dominated the outgoing Assembly, was the main loser in Sunday's vote, winning only 30 seats.

Jean-Marie Le Pen said at the locked gate of party headquarters that leaders, his daughter included, should have resigned after electoral defeats.

Another 40 seats have been won by LREM's allies, the centrist Democratic Movement of Justice Minister Francois Bayrou.

Mr Castaner tweeted: "There is a clear majority. It's a responsibility. The real victory will be in five years time when things will have really changed".

"After the reforms, which we expect Macron to implement, France could turn into the strongest of all major economies in Europe in the next decade, outclassing a Germany that is resting on its laurels and a United Kingdom that (through Brexit) is impairing its long-term growth prospects", said Holger Schmieding, chief economist at German bank Berenberg.

Of the 577 elected lawmakers, 233 were women, beating the record of 155 set after the last election.

The new parliament, which holds its first session next week, will look very different: 75% of its MPs have not previously occupied a seat in the assembly, their average age has fallen seven years to 48, and a record number - 223, or 38.7% - are women.

"(Macron's) En Marche (party)... proactively chose to give winning seats to women", said 34-year-old Brune Poirson, who beat the far-right National Front to be elected in the Vaucluse district in southeastern France.


Ms Le Pen entered parliament for the first time as her party won at least eight seats, but this fell well short of its 15-seat target.

REM routed the Socialists and heavily defeated the rightwing Republicans, while Le Pen's National Front (FN) had a disappointing night. There is also doubt about the solidarity of parliamentary members gathered from other parties.

Reports by the Guardian indicate that Le Pen was criticized for failing to capitalize on the 10.6 Million votes she got in the Presidential elections.

"Abstention has today broken new records. Even if Macron has won a strong majority, he should know that his ideas are in a minority in this country".

Mr Melenchon's hard-left France Unbowed won 17 seats as it also struggled to maintain the momentum it had during the presidential election.

"In the history of our institutions, it's a revolution without precedent since 1958", the start of France's Fifth Republic.

Since taking office, Macron has appointed leading politicians from established parties to key ministerial posts, including prime minister and foreign minister, emphasizing his intention to tackle issues with suprapartisanship.

Nevertheless, the scale of victory gives the president, a pro-European Union centrist, a strong platform from which to make good on campaign promises to revive France's fortunes by cleaning up politics and relaxing regulations that investors say shackle the euro zone's second-biggest economy. They include a mathematician, a former bullfighter and anti-corruption magistrates.
