The short statement below shows the impact of the 2017 "Macron Tsunami" on other Party MPs in the French Parliamentary Assembly :
Socialist Party 258 30
National Front Party 2 8
Communist Party 11 10
Unsubdued Party 11 17
The Republicans 193 130
Macron "en marche" Party 0 308
MoDem Party 2 42
Sundry others 100 32
Total number of MPs 577 577
In just over one year Macron, who had been the Adviser of President Hollande, founded his Party, was elected President of France and then his Party alone obtained a Majority in the National Assembly !
One says that success breeds success ! This is clearly what happened here, as the Statement above reveals, but it also resulted in the destruction of the two former traditional Parties which had taken turns in Governing France, since the creation of the 5th Republic by De Gaule in 1958 !
Electors had heard all the reasons why taxes were escalating and costs were rising, but after the desasterous Presidency of Hollande French Electors all wanted a complete change ! Macron promised he would change France !
When he became the new President, Macron promised Equality of the Sexes in politics and a new Moral Code in politics . In his new "en Marche" Party there were more than 200 neophyte Candidates ! Voters flocked to back his party !
This is only a part of the Macron Tsunami effect and it has not yet ended.
Even today, the third day after the General Election, four Ministers have either resigned or not been retained in the Government due to the new Moral Code.
We must patiently wait to see what happens next !
