'Ungovernable': Papers react to bombshell result of French parliamentary elections


IN THE PRESS – Monday, 20.06.2022: French papers look at the political bombshell for President Emmanuel Macron, whose centrist bloc emerged from Sunday's second round of the legislative elections well short of an absolute majority in parliament. Libération, the main left-wing daily, describes the results for his group as a "slap", while Le Parisien and Le Figaro headline that France is now "ungovernable". Macron will be unable to push on with his legislative agenda without significant opposition support.
