Paris: French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist coalition was projected to lose a majority despite winning the most seats in the final round of parliamentary elections on Sunday, while a right-wing national rally made huge gains.
Projections based on partial results suggest Macron’s candidate will win between 200 and 250 seats – far fewer than the 289 needed for a direct majority in the National Assembly, the most powerful house in France’s parliament.
