French President Emmanuel Macron stated Wednesday night that he cannot ignore deep political divisions in France as revealed by the results from the legislative elections.
Macron spoke on televised television and said that he has spoken to the leaders of the opposition parties in the National Assembly about a possible national union.
He stated that it was necessary to reach compromises with other political parties in the National Assembly to “serve our common interest”.
The French President will require the political parties to be transparent about where they can go with regard to voting laws and other decisions.
He stated that “no political force can make laws today alone,” and added: “We must learn how to govern differently.”
Macron declared, “Together will we find the path to collective success,” while stressing urgent matters such as purchasing, labor, and energy crisis, but also emphasized the importance of urgent matters like health, purchasing power, and the environment.
“As soon that I return from Brussels, will we continue to build this method,” stated the president.
On June 12th and 19, the French legislative elections took place. Macron’s Alliance Ensemble won 245 seats but was unable to win the 289 needed seats to secure absolute majority in France’s National Assembly.
