Communist Fabian Roussel, who was invited on Tuesday evening, said Mr Macron was considering, among other scenarios, a constitution for a “government of national unity”.

Mr Philippe in particular hopes to strike a deal with the LR, even if many right-wing leaders close the door to any “argument of agreement”, such as party president Christian Jacob who on Tuesday “repeated” Emmanuel Macron That there was no question of entering into what could be the betrayal of our voters.”
Mr. Jacob opposed Edouard Philippe in the evening. His record is “sad”, judging by that Macroni wanted to kill LR.

Barbara Pompilly and Joel Giroud, or even former minister LR Emmanuel Macron rallied for Eric Worth.
