Summary (updated Monday morning with the final figures): France's political landscape has undergone dramatic change tonight following the second round of legislative elections. In a major setback inflicted by voters, Emmanuel Macron has became the first president in 30 years not to win a working majority in the National Assembly, with his Ensemble coalition picking up 245 seats. This is far short of the 289 seats required for an overall majority in the National Assembly.
Since January 7, 2023 our colleague and friend Mortaza Behboudi has been imprisoned in Afghanistan, in the Taliban prisons.
We do not forget him and call for his release.
