paris - The rivals of French president Emmanuel Macron find the revolution that matters in parliament is not a good thing. The opposition approves it because if the forecasts come true there is no more room for debate in the Assembly. That is stifling for democracy.
'It is neither healthy nor desirable that a president who received only 24 percent of the vote in the first round of the presidential election and was chosen in the second because of the rejection of the extreme right, benefiting from a monopoly in parliament,' said Jean-Christophe Cambadelis, the party leader of the socialists. The PS reigned for several years with the UMP, the forerunner of Les Républicains, and is now threatening to be marginalized.

François Baroin, Campaign Leader of Les Républicains, also ventured that political power should not be concentrated in one party. He forgettably forgot that in the near past Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy on behalf of the UMP failed in a similarly strong position.
The big winner LRM parsed the criticism and promised carefully with that power. 'We will show respect for the opposition,' said Jean-Paul Delevoye, who helped select the candidates for Macron's party. 'There should be respect for minorities in the debate. It will not be dominant but a responsible majority. '
Marine Le Pen was disappointed with the bad turnout. 'Careful,' she found. The prosecutor of right-wing Front National received sufficient support in her constituency to make a throw in parliament's membership.
