Emmanuel Macron calls for a majority following the debacle of the legislative elections: “We will have to build compromises”

Addressing the French, the Head of State recognized the “fractures” revealed by the legislative elections and called on all “political groups to say in complete transparency how far they are ready to go”. The French president only has a relative majority in the Assembly after the legislative elections on Sunday and must find alliances.

“We must learn to govern and legislate differently”, he said, inviting the political groups to “say in complete transparency how far they are ready to go” to “build compromises”. “We will have to build compromises, enrichments, amendments, but do so in complete transparency, in the open if I may say so, in a desire for unity and action for the nation”, declared the President of the Republic. .

In this short televised address, he also confirmed that measures on “purchasing power”, “climate” and “full employment” would be taken this summer.
