In the second round of the French legislative elections, “Macronie” obtained a relative majority with 246 seats against the New People’s Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) which garnered 142 seats. Along the way, Together! (new name of LREM, the presidential party) has also seen several followers of President Emmanuel Macron fall.
This is the lesson of this sanction election which hit the re-elected president with full force, the RN (Rassemblement National, ex FN Front National) which achieves a historic score with 89 seats, a score never achieved for the far right in France. since its creation which could only gather less than 10 deputies as its greatest achievement.
The 577 seats in the hemicycle are completed by the Les Républicains (LR) party and the Union of Democrats and Independents (UDI), 64 and the left excluding Nupes 13, as well as 9 from the right excluding LR and UDI and 9 seats various. The French National Assembly and the Hexagon for the first time in its history under the Fifth Republic plunge into the unknown with this equation where a president, just re-elected, finds himself unable to apply his program without a coalition.
No absolute majority therefore, two protesting parties and moreover opposed (Nupes and RN) consecrated as main opposition groups, the day after the second round of the legislative elections, it is an ungovernable France that this ballot offers us, sanction or abstention was invited and strongly (53.77%) by contributing to this unprecedented complexity of the political landscape where power is now embodied through the Hemicycle. In other cruder terms, it is a real lesson in “dégagisme” so to speak that the French have given to their president or at least to his policy.
From now on, to govern he will have to deal with his best enemies and when we have put all his adversaries against him, this is practically impossible.
What will this France thus drawn look like, Mustapha Tossa, journalist and political scientist based in Paris, solicited by MoroccoLatestNews.fr for his legendary benevolence, sheds light on the subject. ” These results mean that the second term will not be a long calm river for Emmanuel Macron our interlocutor throws at us straight away.
” He who had embodied President Jupiter and who ruled vertically and who gave orders above so that the Legislation be translated below, sees this period end in the absence of an absolute majority “, he shifted.
He thus supports his statements by continuing: The President of the Republic will be forced to deal with other political forces, whether left, right or extreme right. Moreover, one of the major signals of this expected legislative rebellion is that the Nupes has already decided to table a motion of censure on July 5 against the government of Elizabeth Borne. Indeed it is a path, it is a mandate which will be paved with difficulties, challenges, blockages and which could, according to many commentators, push the President of the Republic to imagine in a year, a probable dissolution “.
And Mustapha Tossa adds, ” Emmanuel Macron has certainly won the presidential election but it is a victory that tastes like failure, especially in the legislative elections, the French took advantage of this election not only to sanction and punish him but also to send him a message of challenge by depriving him of brilliant way of an absolute majority but also by opening the doors of the National Assembly to a massive and unprecedented entry from the RN of Marine Le Pen and to another imposing group of Jean-Luc Mélenchon “.
The political scientist and journalist will thus conclude “ So there you have it, the equation that Emmanuel Macron has to manage, a destitute president and handcuffed by a mass entry of his opponents, while during his first term, he governed quietly with a comfortable majority which allowed him to pass all the projects of law he wanted and which managed with many conveniences the business of the government. Today, every decision will have to be negotiated whether at executive level or at parliamentary level. This is the great novelty of Emmanuel Macron’s second term “.
