We'll have the legislative elections shortly. It's a chance to deprive Macron from a majority so he can't single-handedly ruin France like he did for five years and is forced to compromise.
No matter how much you dislike him, he still had more votes than anyone else at both the first and second round. Who exactly would be more legitimate than him?
I agree though that it would be suicidal for Macron to go alone to the parliamentary election, but in a multi-party democracy where the leading party don't represent more than 28% at the first round of the presidential elections, it is suicidal for any party to go alone at the parliamentary elections. Everyone wants to win alone
against everyone else. Such self-centeredness doesn't feel compatible with a democracy requiring the respect of the diversity of opinions, and therefore the one of others.
It's striking that the 4 candidates of the first round representing 80% of voters are totally alone, with no alliance, and holds next to no city council, metropolis, department or region (precisely because we need alliances even at local level to win those territories).
The best thing which would happen for the parliamentary elections would be for institutions to be respected again. And in the French 5th Republic, that means party alliances before the first round of the parliamentary elections, so that voters would know which alliance they would be voting for. And obiously 3 blocks emerged from this presidential elections:
- Mélenchon's radical left (and socialists, greens and communists should accept it and form an alliance)
- Macron's center-right (and right-wing LR, UDI should accept it and and form alliance, together with Modem which already did)
- Le Pen's populist right (and Zemmour, Dupont-Aignan should accept it and form an alliance).
That's certainly what I hope for in the interest of democracy itself. And may the best team win.
