paris - The party of French President Emmanuel Macron stems from a big victory in the parliamentary elections. The last polls indicate that. Macron's social-liberal party La République and Marche (LRM) would reach between 350 and 380 seats of 577 in the warehouse, the Assembly Nationale. This was announced by IFOP's research firm on Wednesday.

According to Odoxa's contestant's rating, Macron can count on 350 to 390 deputies. Ipsos Sopra Steria was even more optimistic earlier this week, with a survey of 385 to 415 seats. Such a large majority would give the Macron Government a strong mandate to pursue economic reforms, starting with the revision of labor legislation in favor of commercial activity. This has traditionally been a difficult point on the political agenda, given the establishment of the unions.

The voters go to the polls in two rounds, on 11 and 18 June. Candidates who get in their constituency get less than 12.5 percent of the votes in the first round fall for the second. In the polls, the LRM, which is only short, but it has delegates to get well in all the winds, at 29.5 percent.

The Conservative Republicans with their allies (23 percent) and the right-populist Front National (17) follow remotely. In parliament they would reach 105 to 125 seats and 5 to 15. The Marine Le Pen party currently has only a few delegates in the Assembly. The left-wing La France insoumise with 12.5 percent (12-22 seats) and the Socialists with 8.5 (25-35) remain or become small according to the forecasts.
