  • Analysis: French left-wing parties seal coalition deal to challenge Macron in parliamentary elections

    France's Socialist Party sealed a deal on Friday to join the French left's first broad coalition pact in 20 years, in a bid to deprive newly re-elected President Emmanuel Macron of a majority in June's parliamentary elections. The pact, which the Greens and Communists already approved earlier this week, sees La France Insoumise (LFI) in the driving seat for the first time, in a deal that is shaking up French politics. FRANCE 24's French Politics Editor Marc Perelman gives his analysis.

  • French parliamentary elections: Can new left-wing alliance keep a united front?

    Danièle Obono, MP - France Unbowed, joins FRANCE 24 (Part 2). France's new left-wing bloc is set to become the largest opposition force in parliament, but staying united will present an early test as President Emmanuel Macron's majority seeks allies on the moderate left to push through his reform agenda. Macron's Ensemble (Together) coalition emerged as the largest party in Sunday's National Assembly vote but fell short of a majority, a result portrayed as a huge win by a left that made major gains. The left-wing alliance brings together the hard-left La France Insoumise (LFI), the Socialist Party, the Greens and Communists for the first time in 20 years - under the helm of the eurosceptic far-left veteran Jean-Luc Melenchon.

  • French legislative elections: Macron party neck and neck with left-wing bloc

    French President Emmanuel Macron and a new left-wing union were neck-and-neck in initial estimates of the first round of parliamentary elections, polls showed on Sunday, although it will remain hard to predict if he will get a majority or not. Less than two months after re-election, Macron faces a strong challenge from a united left-wing bloc that polls show could deprive the president of an outright majority even if it does not take control of parliament.

  • French left agrees in principle on rare coalition deal to take on Macron
