For the first time after the constitutional reform of 2000, when the president's party, which won the election the day before, will not have a majority in the National Assembly. Macron lost his absolute majority in the second round of the parliamentary elections on Sunday June 19.

According to the official results of the elections cited by the French Interior Ministry, Emmanuel Macron's “Together” bloc did not receive the 289 votes he needs to keep control of the Assembly. He has a total of 245 seats in the vote.

Far-left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, with his alliance of the main left-wing parties called Nupes, won 131 seats.

Meanwhile, Marine Le Pen and her far-right National Rally party received 89 seats – almost ten times more than it had so far.

Also, the “Republicans” are entering the new parliament; – they will receive 61 mandates.

In the 2017 elections, Macron's new party Forward Republic received 350 mandates. And today, the fate of Macron's second presidential term will depend on the “Republicans” – whether they will agree (and under what conditions) to join the coalition.
