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?
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.
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.
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.
