The emergence of the New Popular Front, which groups left-wingers from Socialists to Communists, has been an unwelcome development for Macron since he called the snap elections in response to his party’s defeat by the far right in European polls. His ruling alliance is forecast by opinion polls to come only third in the legislative elections on June 30 – followed by a second round on July 7 – behind the RN and the new left-wing alliance. But Macron said Tuesday on a visit to western France that he “had confidence in the French”. “They see well what is on offer. The RN and its allies offer things which may make people happy but in the end we are talking 100 billion (euros) a year.”
