(Worthy News) – French far-right leader Marine Le Pen’s party managed to shore up enough seats to form an official parliamentary group for the first time since 1986 in Sunday’s runoff parliamentary elections.

With 577 seats up for grabs in France’s National Assembly, the lower house of Parliament, Le Pen’s National Rally won 89 seats, up 81 seats from 2017, when the party held eight seats, according to initial projections. Meanwhile, President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist alliance, Ensemble, is projected to lose his absolute majority, giving a huge blow to his reform agenda, according to France 24.

Projections based on partial results show that Macron will have to settle for 224 seats, falling short of an absolute majority at 289 seats, according to France 24. The results are a huge defeat for the president, who won 351 seats back in 2017. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
