In a speech televised, French President Emmanuel Macron admitted that his party is no longer a majority in parliament. That is why I want to talk to the opposition about the coalition that can govern the country. He excludes the government of national unity.
Macron has recently become a re-elected president in flying colors. But on Sunday, the coalition behind him, named the ensemble (“together”), lost a majority in parliament. It makes it much harder for the president to push his ambitious government plans forward. Apparently, quite a few French were afraid to raise these plans, especially retirement age.
I understand that the country wants change
Tonight, President Macron admitted in a television speech that “no one can now rule alone.” “A new compromise is needed, but it will take time to reach an agreement,” he said. “I understand that the country wants change,” he said, but he is confident that “the political leaders I recently spoke to are willing to avoid political impasse.” ing.
Therefore, Macron is confident that he will succeed in regaining a majority of Congress through the coalition. However, he excludes the national unity government with all major political parties. Macron outlined: the purchasing power, climate change and employment of the population.
Who does Macron want to work with?
To clarify: President Macron’s Alliance Ensemble is still the largest faction in the French Parliament with 245 seats, but it is far less than what the absolute majority needs. This was followed by Nupes, a very broad left-wing alliance formed by the radical left-wing politician Jean-Luc Melenchon with the old socialist PS, Greens, and some communists. It has 131 seats in total. Marine Le Pen’s radical right-wing National Rally (formerly the National Rally) is third with 89 seats. It’s less than the others, but a big improvement.
So while French voters seem to want Macron to be president, they don’t want him to do anything. In particular, he plans to raise his retirement age from 62 to 65.
If Macron wants to rule efficiently, and of course he wants, he will have to be on his side. Mélenchonen Co looks pretty left-wing, and Macron doesn’t want to burn himself in collaboration with Le Pen. All that remains is to join forces with the centre-right Republican (former Gaulleist). They can seat 61 seats, enough to make up the absolute majority, but long-standing Conservatives have to struggle and may not want to pull chestnuts out of the fire.
Therefore, we all know that we can go in either direction, Macron is very cunning and has the ability to break up some possible partnerships. Especially in the Left Alliance around Melechon, there are quite a few people who can’t broadcast to each other, but so are other formations. In the past, the cross-border “cohabitation” was very harmful to at least one party, and in most cases the incumbent president who has followed the French model of the Fifth Republic since Charles de Gaulle. It will be profitable. “Pole position”.
