Macron’s party loses parliamentary majority; Le Pen calls for new elections
#1
Strange thing , unless the politician has the "Stalin stamp of approval" the main news and TV never tell anything about them here in Europe.
I can only hope people start to wake up and take democracy back to what it should be, something the people control ,not as it is becoming, a thing controlled by the left and alien cultures. I dont like her or her party much, but I do understand she is the only one who can stop the madness that is going on in France, and perhaps help save Europe
Its interesting that politicians who left Macrons party want to set up an even more extreme left party

Responding to Macron’s party losing its majority in the National Assembly earlier this week, Marine Le Pen of the populist National Rally (RN) has called for new elections so that the will of the people is better reflected in the country’s lawmaking body. 
 
On Tuesday, after seven MPs from Macron’s La Republique En Marche (LREM) defected to form the new party called “Ecology, Democracy, Solidarity”, the long-time chief of National Rally urged him to dissolve the lawmaking body and hold new elections, Le Figaro reports.
 
“The Head of State explained to us that he was mistaken, that he was going to make a totally different police,” Le Pen said. “In a perfect democracy, this must push us to come back to the voters, moreover when we lose our majority and when we are in a succession of crises.”
 
The new parliamentary group which consists of 17 former LREM lawmakers has stated that it would neither sit in the majority nor the opposition. In a political declaration posted to its website, the group said that it would “be a demanding force, ready to build with the government and the majority whenever they listen to our proposals, as with all political benches, to build majorities of ideas to give progress ecological and social a chance to succeed.”
 
Responding to the fracturing of Macron’s big tent party, Le Pen said: “The breakdown of this bric-a-brac alliance was predictable. The elected representatives of The Republic on the Move have only one thing in common: they had the intuition to cling to the Macron hot air balloon during the last presidential election.”
 
The populist leader also argued that the election of future parliamentarians should also occur under proportional representation and not by majority ballot.
 
At present, French lawmakers are elected in a system which consists of two rounds where candidates who garner more than 50 percent of the vote in round one win automatically. In the case that no candidate reaches this percentage, the candidates with the two most votes face off head to head in a second and final round.
 
National Rally, which draws its support from a broad range of geographical regions, has long preferred a proportional representation voting system. Such as system does not inherently handicap third parties in way that France’s current system or Britain’s first past the post system both do.
 
According to an opinion poll for Le Journal du Dimanche newspaper, twenty percent of the French public believes that Le Pen would’ve done handled the Wuhan coronavirus crisis better than Macron. As of April 30th, a separate poll found that 58% of the French public disapproved of Macron’s performance as the country’s head of state.
