French President Emmanuel Macron revealed today, Tuesday, his rejection of the resignation of Prime Minister Elizabeth Born, after the centrist alliance led by Macron lost its majority in Parliament and suffered a resounding defeat in the legislative elections.
An Elysee Palace official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Macron had rejected Bourne’s resignation because he believed the government needed to keep working, AFP reported.
The official also indicated that the French president is seeking to reach “constructive solutions” with the opposition parties to get out of this political impasse.
French President Macron had allied himself in Parliament on Sunday by winning 245 seats in the 577-seat assembly at the conclusion of the second round of the legislative elections, according to the Ministry of the Interior at dawn on Monday. This means that the “Together” alliance is very far from the result required to ensure a majority, while the Left Alliance, led by the leader of the “Proud France” party, Jean-Luc Melenchon, won 135 seats, and the right-wing coalition led by the far-right National Front candidate, Marine Le Pen, won 89 seats. According to the French Ministry of the Interior.
