The rise of French leftists to take over the prime minister's seat

Eviralnews, quoted by “De Site”, after holding early parliamentary elections in France, Socialist “Olivier Faure” from the left coalition announced his desire to hold the position of prime minister. The left coalition wants to go to the government from today.

In this way, the Socialist Olivier Faure is the first person to openly announce that he wants to become the Prime Minister of the center-left alliance in France. French media unanimously reported that the General Secretary of the Socialist Party said before entering the parliament building that he was “ready to accept the position.

Two days after the second round of elections for members of the National Assembly, French politicians are discussing the formation of a government. For the first time yesterday, new or re-elected representatives gathered in the parliament. Since neither French President Emmanuel Macron's party coalition nor any other faction has a majority in the French parliament, forming a government is likely to be difficult.

The left-wing coalition of the Nouveau Popular Front (NFP) narrowly won the French parliamentary elections. French President Emmanuel Macron's Liberal Party coalition came in second, followed by Marine Le Pen's far-right Social National Party and its allies. In order to form a government, several parties will probably have to come together for the first time to form a coalition – a highly unusual situation in France. In this situation, Macron would also likely have to work with a prime minister who is not in the same party.

According to published reports, Olivier Faure assured that he will discuss the post of prime minister only with his partners in the left-wing coalition. According to him, there is a need to talk about this within the alliance. In the next few days, the left coalition will consider the issue of prime ministership. Other politicians from the left coalition are currently in the running for the position.

At the same time, the left-wing coalition asked Macron to meet with this coalition that won the parliamentary elections to discuss the future government as soon as possible.

Representatives of the parties in the coalition – such as the Greens' Marine Tondlier – issued a statement calling on Macron to oblige them to form a government as soon as possible.

With 190 seats, the New Popular Front (NFP) is far from an absolute majority, but it is the strongest force.

According to Republican custom, Macron can now turn to the Left Alliance to organize a common life, the statement continued. In France, cohabitation is when the president and prime minister belong to different parties.

The results of the second round of the French parliamentary elections, which, contrary to expectations, led to a significant victory of the left coalition and a political earthquake, have put France on a difficult political path that will take a long time to get out of.

“Gabriel Attal”, the prime minister of France, announced his resignation after announcing the results of the elections, but the president of this country, Emmanuel Macron, asked him to remain in his position for the stability of the country.

The alliance of the left, consisting of communists, socialists and greens, does not have a clear leader. There is also no shared program.

“Marin Tondlier”, the general secretary of the Green Party, said after winning this election: We won and now we will govern. “Melanchon”, the founder of the French leftist party, also asked Macron to request the unity of the left for the government.

Marine Le Pen's far-right National Assembly (RN) was expected to win a landslide victory in the election. The formation of a right-wing nationalist government—the likely horror scenario of Germany and the EU—seems to be averted for now. Nevertheless, RN has made significant achievements.

However, the French Parliament will now become the place of discussion and approval of laws. This will not be easy. The new National Assembly is highly polarized and the parties' ability to reach a compromise in the parliament is essentially weak.

In any case, governing in France will be much more complicated in the future, because in the future there will be three political blocs in the National Assembly: right-wing and conservative extremists, the government's center camp and the left-wing alliance.

If French President Emmanuel Macron is soon forced to appoint a prime minister from the left wing of the Popular Front, the situation will become difficult.

Even if Macron wants to continue working with the previous government, his party coalition lacks the majority in parliament to implement EU decisions or launch its own initiatives.
