The most serious problem of the President of France Emanuel Macron does not lie in the fact that he will not be, as he hoped, the first head of state who would be able to rule for two terms without being forced to live together.
It lies in the fact that now that he needs no roommate, he declares his willingness to share … a house with him.

Marin Lepen, the leader of the far right, who two months ago was thinking of handing over the leadership of her party, already sees herself sitting round in 2027 at the Palace of the Champs Elysees. Until then, he will oppose Macron everywhere and in everything.
The same states that Jean-Luc Melanson will do the same, who does not seem willing to leave the political scene either, as he had hinted before the presidential election that he will do because of his age.
So the only one who is expected to leave politics in 2027 is the – youngest of all – Mr. Macron, for whom a third term is not allowed under the French Constitution.

He will face an official opposition that is very left-wing and a minor opposition that is very right-wing.
There are, of course, Republican Republicans who could lend a helping hand to Macron – but for the time being, they are also in opposition.
Not everyone: The party’s most recognizable figure, former President Nicolas Sarkozy, is in favor of working with the Macron faction. But Mr Sarkozy is not a Republican MP, nor did he respect party patriotism in the run-up to the election.
In the absence of a parliamentary majority until recently, Emanuel Macron’s faction will seek, as Prime Minister Elizabeth Bourne said, “action majorities” of “varying sensitivities” on specific issues.
The question that has been prevailing in France since last night is whether and to what extent the country can be governed in this way.
Pending Macron’s position on the election results, which may shed light on where France is heading, political analysts are discussing possible scenarios. noting that if he wants, Macron has the right to call new parliamentary elections.
However, they emphasize that if he does it now, it will be a political suicide.
