Macron's coalition defeated in French parliamentary elections

Le Pen’s party saw a big increase in its representation as Macron has lost his majority in the French parliament.

Just under two months after securing a second term as President of France, Emmanuel Macron and his Ensemble! coalition have suffered a disastrous result in the final round of voting in the parliamentary elections on Sunday, securing just 245 seats, far short of the 289 necessary to maintain a governing majority and at the low end of polling projections leading up to the vote.

The night’s true victor — at least in terms of exceeding expectations — was perhaps Marine Le Pen’s National Rally (RN), which saw a surprising result of 89 candidates elected to the National Assembly, the most in the history of the party, including its predecessor National Front. Le Pen’s party, which previously only boasted eight representatives . . .

Le Pen has opposed sanctions on Russian gas and oil, while Macron has been a proponent.

Is the economic fallout from the self-imposed energy embargos driving elections in Europe?

No It’s about affecting his centrist (by their standards) domestic policy, he still controls foreign policy as president.

Yea human garbage won seats. At 89 seats she still more or less powerless Who else won

Or the politics are changing as voters see that they are the prime loser in the economic war. Marcon is deeply unpopular and becoming more unpopular. His approval peaked in early March and has been falling ever since.

They won 89 seats. The French care about the economy.

His approval was when he beat the human piece of trash.

Why would cite a Feb or even a March poll when the French had elections in April :joy:

France is a mess, and like other western nations are dividing and falling apart from the inside. They are not and exception. The only difference there than the states is the way segregation works the Natives keep their cities while foreigners feel the suburbs.

Early March was at the height of the “Ukraine-is-winning” hysteria and before the effects of self-inflicted sanctions had hit home in Europe.

Now we are seeing record energy prices as the economies in Europe and North America drift into recession. Expect that the all the platitudes about saving the environment will get pushed to the back burner as Europe restarts dirty coal-fired power plants to make up for the lack of Russian natural gas.

More election losses by the ruling elites are on the horizon as the slow-motion disaster continues.

131 additional human garbage won seats, so the total human garbage amounts to 220 seats.

It’s okay to say the Party of Vichy are worse than the regular guys. The party whose stated goal is to kill French democracy.

Or is hating democracy and wanting an autocrat just a common trait of right wing parties in Western countries now? To the point we have to both-sides it?

I am talking about the Communist scum and the rest of the extreme far left, which did FAR better than the scum from the far right.

And in my opinion, both the Nazi’s and the Commie’s deserve nothing less than a kick in the teeth. (Little harsh, I will tone it down.) :smile:

■■■■ both of them.

“Human garbage” has come to mean anyone who does not support the ruling elite?

French ruling elites who treated the rest of the population as “human garbage” have not worked out well in the past.

Marcon lost the election. His coalition no longer controls the parliament.

It is not clear who will become Prime Minister, but the parliament will not be a rubber stamp for Macron.

Well no. As @Safiel pointed out others who do not support the current French b government were also elected.

Did you just point to the French terror :joy:

Do you know that in some ways those guys were the original populists? I am begging you please open a history book.

French would be a lot better off if they would just accept the fact that they are incapable of rationally governing themselves and restore the Bourbons. :smile:

They are not falling apart from the inside. There is a political realignment occurring away from centrist globalist representation that sells out the traditional popular cultural national identity for a homogeneous globalist-elite-imposed culture very few like, that was sold on promises of world peace and prosperity that have never been delivered to individual citizens of nation states.

Citizens are abandoning globalism, and globalism’s devotees within politics are being kicked to the curb.

Do you have a direct quote from the party saying that? Or is that an Adam-Schiffian paraphrase?

Why don’t we just go have a beer and stop this nonsense? We don’t agree but I’m sure you are a nice guy anyway…even though you are an “evil” Democrat. :grin:
