Real victory in five years' time: Macron camp

Real victory in five years' time: Macron camp

The move came after Macron's La République en Marche party and its centrist ally won 350 of the 577 seats in the National Assembly ( in the final round of voting on Sunday.

The centrist party, La Republique En Marche, which was created previous year, clinched 361 seats out of 577 in the National Assembly, giving it an absolute majority following the final round of the parliamentary elections in France. "The president of the Republic has all the powers", Jean-Christophe Cambadelis said late on Sunday after announcing he would step down as Socialist Party chief.

Emmanuel Macron won the race for the Elysee and has now been achieved a large majority in the National Assembly.

PARIS French far-right leader Marine Le Pen called for an orderly debate on Monday as her National Front party launched an inquest into a disappointing election performance and a policy review which could lead to it softening its hostility to the euro.

Sunday's polls were again marked by weak voter turnout. Her National Front party was expected to place up to eight lawmakers in the lower chamber, compared to two lawmakers in the outgoing Assembly.

Government spokesman Christophe Castaner said on RTL radio on Monday that Prime Minister Edouard Philippe would resign "in the coming hours" and a new government would be named in the coming days.

French President Emmanuel Macron walks on the Champs Elysees avenue as he arrives for a ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe after the handover ceremony in Paris, France, May 14, 2017. Catherine Barbaroux, En Marche's interim leader, said the party could now start making changes.

Many of Macron's lawmakers will be political novices, something which will change the face of parliament at the expense of the conservative and socialist parties which have ruled France for decades. As a result, the situation we had in the 1990s, of a president and a parliamentary majority being opposed, is no longer popular with the voters.

"After the reforms, which we expect Macron to implement, France could turn into the strongest of all major economies in Europe in the next decade, outclassing a Germany that is resting on its laurels and a United Kingdom that (through Brexit) is impairing its long-term growth prospects", said Holger Schmieding, chief economist at German bank Berenberg.

The parliamentary boost also strengthens Macron's hand on the European stage as the EU heads into negotiations on Britain's departure from the bloc.

Poirson made a decision to become a candidate in January when Macron sent a video to party members urging more women to put themselves forward.

The FN had been seeking to reach the 15-seat threshold to form a parliamentary group that would give it more speaking time and access to top roles within the assembly.

The conservative Republicans won 112 seats, falling well short of their aim of sharing power with Macron's party.

The far-right Front National, which now has two seats in parliament, was predicted to win up to eight seats, better than its first-round showing had indicated.

He wants a leadership role in countering the kind of nationalism that far-right leader Le Pen represents, which spurred the Brexit vote and helped propel Donald Trump to the USA presidency.
