Debacle for the presidential majority. This Sunday, June 19, the second round of the legislative elections took place against a backdrop of record abstention. For the first time since 1988, the majority of the President of the Republic does not obtain an absolute majority in the National Assembly. With approximately 230 seats, the deputies of the executive are far from an absolute majority and will have to find alliances to try to pass texts of laws. The second opposition force, the New Popular Ecological and Social Union (NUPES) is entering the Chamber with more than 140 deputies. The National Rally (RN) is experiencing a strong push by multiplying its score by ten and enters with around 80 deputies. To comment on these results, the two main general-interest channels and the news channels were in special edition in order to receive the main political personalities.

The disappointment of the presidential majority

On BFMTV, Maxime Switeck and Apolline de Malherbe received around 8:30 p.m. Éric Dupond-Moretti, the representative of the presidential majority, and Alexis Corbière, the right arm of Jean-Luc Mélenchon. While the Minister of Justice entrusted his “disappointment” faced with the mediocre results of Ensemble!, Alexis Corbière relished the strong push of his camp to the National Assembly. What cause strong tensions between the two men. “It’s still extraordinary that we forget the results of the presidential election, it’s not an anecdote. Emmanuel Macron was re-elected. And quite brilliantly!”began the Keeper of the Seals.

Tensions between the two men

“Against Madame Le Pen…”, retorted Alexis Corbière. “Against you too because you came third“, replied tit for tat his interlocutor. “Are you cocky again tonight? I love you, you are amazing! Are you still showing off? Well well done!”, quipped the far-left MP. “Invective sir…“, tried to continue Éric Dupond-Moretti before being interrupted. “Don’t talk to me like that!”exclaimed Alexis Corbière before the two presenters asked for a return to calm on the set.
