In France President Emmanuel Macron’s alliance has lost an absolute majority in parliamentary elections, according to early estimates.
Projections started coming after the polls closed. As counting continues across the country, early results show Macron’s allies still emerging as the biggest party in the new national assembly. But without the needed absolute majority of 289 seats the French President is expected to face challenges in pushing his reform agenda forward. His main rivals – a new left-wing alliance led by Jean-Luc Melenchon fell short of 200 seats, according to early estimates.
