I francese hanno dato a Mr Macron una terrificante mazzata sul cranio.
Dei 171 seggi in palio alle elezioni per il rinnovo di metà del senato avrebbero eletto 146 – 156 senatori dell’opposizione e solo 22 di partito di Mr Macron.
Quando saranno disponibili i dati definitivi, allora potremo fare dei commenti.
Per il momento basti dire che anche Mr Macron è andato incontro ad una débâcle.
→ The New York Times. 2017-09-24. Europe. The Latest: French Conservatives Keep Majority in Senate
The Latest on France’s Senate election (all times local):
Partial official results show France’s conservatives on track to keep their majority in the Senate, with President Emmanuel Macron’s party trailing as his popularity suffers.
Interior Ministry results after Sunday’s vote showed the conservative Republicans keeping most of their seats and gaining a few. A senator from Macron’s Republic on the Move! party said it came in third place.
Around half of the 348 Senate seats were up for grabs in Sunday’s vote. Senators are not chosen by public vote, but by elected officials.
French broadcasters’ projections say the conservatives will have between 146 and 156 seats overall after Sunday’s vote, with around 22 for Macron’s party, which was only created last year.
The results damage Macron’s legitimacy but should not prevent him from passing key promised changes to France’s economy because the conservatives back them too.
