Macron's party set for big parliamentary majority after 1st round

The party of newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron was on target for a big majority in the country's National Assembly after a first round of voting, final results showed June 12, in a boost to his chances of passing his economic program.

La République en Marche and its ally MoDem won 32% of the vote, ahead of the right-wing Les Républicains and allies with 22%, Interior Ministry data showed. If these results are confirmed in the second round of voting on June 18, Macron's grouping would win from 380-430 of the 577 seats, France24 said.

The far-right Front National won 13% of the vote, the far-left France Insoumise 11% and the Socialists and allies 9.5%.

A parliamentary majority is crucial for Macron as he seeks to push reform in France's economy, after years of high unemployment and weak growth.
