The Head of State will carry out "

the necessary political consultations (...) in order to identify possible constructive solutions in the service of the French

", specified the presidency, before a series of meetings with the party leaders on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Élysée.

Party leaders expected at the Elysée

The head of government, coming from the left, must therefore continue her action, and face an unprecedented situation: that of a relative majority in the National Assembly, following the re-election of the head of state.

Herself elected with a short lead in Calvados against Nupes (52.3%), Elisabeth Borne finds herself weakened.

Especially since the large left-wing bloc, which has more than 130 seats, will probably lead the executive to shift to its right to find allies there.

While waiting to see more clearly, Emmanuel Macron, for his part, invited the party leaders.

They will follow one another on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Élysée, and will mostly send the same message: the opposition can be constructive, if the executive gives it guarantees.
