Rout by Macron's party in French parliamentary election vote

19 June 2017, 02:00 | Lucia Cruz

Such a margin of victory in the 577-seat house would give Macron, a pro-European centrist, the majority he craves to further his political revolution and would inflict a further blow on the country's traditional ruling parties.

Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, a center-right politician who joined Macron's movement, cast his ballot in the port of Le Havre.

With 57 percent of votes counted, the Interior Ministry said Sunday that Macron's Republic on the Move! party had won 41 percent of the vote. "Emmanuel Macron's triumph is uncontestable, the defeat of the left is unavoidable, and the defeat of the Socialist party is irrevocable." said the party's leader, Jean-Christophe Cambadelis, who has now resigned.

The Republicans hung on to between 97 and 130 seats, down from over 200 in the last parliament, and remain the main opposition party. He said lawmakers in his conservative party are going to have a strong enough bloc in the lower house of parliament to be able to voice their views.

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen won a seat in the French Assembly for the first time and the polls showed her National Front winning four to eight seats.

James also has shown a desire to play with his good friend Chris Paul, who now is the point guard of the Los Angeles Clippers. Curry said that if invited, the decision would come as a team, but added he probably "wouldn't go".


Mr Melenchon, whose party was projected to win 25 to 30 seats, denounced Mr Macron's planned labour reforms that would make it easier to hire and fire French workers, calling them a "social coup d'etat" that he would fight.

Turnout, however, was low, estimated at 42 percent by French pollster Elabe, while Ipsos/Sopra Steria placed it at around 43 percent. Experts partly blamed voter fatigue following the May election of Mr Macron, plus voter disappointment with politics.

Confusion also played a role, according to Frederic Dabi of the IFOP polling firm.

His year-old party then filled the political space created by the disarray within the Socialist Party and The Republicans, with Sunday night capping a sequence of events that a year ago looked improbable.

The Socialists, who dominated the outgoing Assembly with 314 seats, but were flattened under the unpopularity of former President Francois Hollande, could win as few as 20 seats.

He said the Socialist party needs to change its ideas and its organization and that a "collective leadership" will replace him.
