Leftist coalition leads in French elections, but without absolute majority

ParisA left-wing coalition that was unexpectedly formed before the elections in France won the most parliamentary seats in the vote, according to exit polls on Sunday. The surprise projections put the president’s centrist alliance in the lead Emmanuel Macron in second place and the extreme right in third.

Macron’s office said he “will wait” to make decisions about a new government.

Jordan Bardella, the president of the far-right National Rally party, said he had made historic gains and blamed Macron for creating “uncertainty and instability.”

The lack of a majority for a single alliance plunged France into political and economic turmoil. Final results are not expected until Sunday evening or early Monday. It was a highly volatile early election, called just four weeks ago in a big gamble for Macron.

According to projections, the president has lost control of Parliament. Marine Le Pen’s far-right party has dramatically increased its number of parliamentary seats, but has not met expectations.
