President Macron is holding Prime Minister Borneo

Despite the poor election results, Emmanuel Macron is not recalling his prime minister. Élisabeth Borne now faces a difficult task.

French President Emmanuel Macron is holding on to Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne even after losing an absolute majority in the parliamentary elections. As France Info reported on Saturday night, Macron instructed Borneo to clarify with various factions in the National Assembly whether they were ready to participate in the government, express confidence in the prime minister and vote in favor of the draft budget. An actionable government should then be formed by the beginning of July.

As the prime minister announced on Twitter on Saturday night, at Macron’s request, she would consult parliamentary groups next week to find out what level of cooperation they are willing to cooperate with. At the end of next week, he will propose a plan and an effective government that is ready to face future challenges. With Macron’s central camp not winning an absolute majority in Sunday’s parliamentary elections, but only a simple majority, the government is demanding the support of other groups.

The largest opposition factions – the right-wing National Rassemblement National and the Left Party – have so far indicated little willingness to help Macron. Convergence with bourgeois-conservative republicans seems conceivable. The president called tax increases and higher government debt “red lines.”

Macron stressed that he was sticking to the planned pension reform. The French should “work longer, as all our neighbors do.” In addition, full employment should be achieved.
