Political instability is rising in France within the face of the Parliamentary election anticipated elections that might be held on June 30 and July 7, after the French president, Emmanuel Macron, dissolved the courts and referred to as new elections, after the failure of the legislative elections through which the intense proper of Marine LePen.

Since yesterday, the completely different political blocs in France have multiplied contacts to achieve help in a fragmented, typically ungovernable Assembly, divided into three blocs: the intense proper, the left and the presidential majority. The newest shock comes as we speak from the Republicans, the conservative occasion inheritor to Nicolas Sarkozy and Jacques Chirac, and which may help Marine Le Pen's excessive proper within the legislative elections.

Its president, Eric Ciotti, has mentioned that he desires “an agreement with National Regrouping”, to have the ability to redirect the nation and to confront the left-wing bloc, led by La Francia Insumisa.

“It is necessary to serve this country, which is in danger,” Ciotti mentioned on the TF1 community. “On the one hand there is the unnatural alliance of the insumisos (La Francia Insumisa) who defend “concepts that border on anti-Semitism” and “on the opposite, the Macronist bloc that has taken the nation to the place it’s as we speak (…)”, has justified.

In his opinion, Le Pen's “nationwide bloc is just too weak” to cope. “We want an alliance, with out ceasing to be ourselves, (…) with the National Group and its candidates,” said Ciotti.

This anouncement, The possibility of an agreement falls like a bomb. This center-right party has been moving its support away from Macron, but it had never crossed the red line of positioning itself with Le Pen. Any movement or pact on one side or the other can change the configuration of an unstable Assembly, to the point of bringing the extreme right into the Government. It will be the first time it happens.

This movement has already generated a rupture within the party, where there is a majority that does not want to agree with the extreme right. This is what the senators of the group have made known to Ciotti, in a statement. “The Republican senators have unanimously reaffirmed what the clear and accountable line of the French proper ought to be: to proceed being itself whereas sustaining our independence and our autonomy, each towards the Macronist camp and the Lepnist camp,” the text says.

If the extreme right were to ally itself with the conservatives, France could find itself in an unusual situation: Having come to confront a common struggle at the polls to stop the extreme right (the so-called republican cordon sanitaire) and articulating anti-Macron alliances.

Jordan Bardella, winner of the European elections, met yesterday with Marion Marchal, the candidate of Reconquista (Eric Zemmour's far-right party) and Le Pen's niece. This morning he had extended his hand to the Republicans, announcing that he would support their candidacies in the constituencies where they are presented.

A pact between Republicans and the extreme right would greatly complicate things for the presidential majority, which seems alienated by the circumstances. The idea that Le Pen's party can govern is no longer so far away. It will happen if it achieves a majority in the legislative elections. An agreement with the Republicans makes it easier. Bardella will be appointed prime minister.

The Prime Minister, Gabriel Attal, in the usual Tuesday Government meeting, was clear: “The excessive proper is on the gates of energy,” he said, according to close sources.

The presidential majority has not yet managed to gain support, while the left has announced its intention to create a popular front to stop National Regrouping (RN), Le Pen's party, in the Assembly. Ecologists, socialists, communists and La Francia Insumisa will present single candidates in the constituencies, despite the disagreements that exist between these political families.

Also on the left the alliances are not clear and Raphael Glucksmann, socialist candidate for the European elections (he achieved 14% of support) and who positions himself as the bloc's new hope, has said that there is still “no want to speak about an settlement.”

They have already joined together in the 2022 legislative elections, under the alliance called Nupes, which dissolved precisely due to differences on issues such as the war in Gaza or Ukraine. Also due to the excessive prominence of the leader of France Insoumise, Jean-Luc Mlenchon. Now they want to confront Le Pen together and propose a rupture program, a roadmap for the first 100 days of an eventual Government.

there is already polls on what the ballot boxes will yield. According to one from Harris Interactive for Challenges and RTL, Marine Le Pen's party would win the elections, with 34% of the support. In 2022 they achieved 18%. The left would have 22% and Macron's bloc (Renacimiento, his party, and Modem and Horizons) would be in third position, with 19%. As the legislative elections take place in two rounds (June 30 and July 7), it is difficult to project how the second vote will evolve, so these polls are taken with a grain of salt, cautiously.

French President Emmanuel Macron is scheduled to hold a press conference tomorrow. It was scheduled for Tuesday. Meanwhile, the unions have called for mobilizations against the extreme right this weekend, to which the left has said it is going to join. On Sunday and Monday there were already spontaneous demonstrations in some cities. In Paris, several hundred people gathered in the Plaza de la República. For now, they are happening without major incidents.
