The French legislative election has produced a majority for Emmanuel Macron’s La République En Marche party. Édouard Philippe, appointed by Macron prior to the election, remained the Prime Minister afterwards, although he reconfigured parts of the cabinet. The second largest party is now the Les Républicains party, which is headed by François Baroin.
