His La République en Marche [LREM] party won an estimated 359 of the 577 seats in the National Assembly, some way short of predictions last week that forecast his fledging party could finish with as many as 450.

France's traditional left and right wing parties fared less well in the election.

A record number of women were elected to parliament - 223, or 38.65%, with the highest numbers among the centrists and hard-left.

He will also talk about a new law aiming at maintaining "a high security level" beyond the end of the state of emergency.
