Macron support 'growing'

World | May 19, 2017
Support for French President Emmanuel Macron's new centrist party is growing before legislative elections next month, a poll found yesterday, raising the chances that he will be able to win parliamentary backing for his reform plans.

A Harris Interactive poll found Macron's Republic on the Move party, together with allies, set to win the largest share of the vote in the first round of the National Assembly elections on June 11.

Thirty-two percent of 4,600 registered voters questioned planned to vote for Macron's party, it said.

Macron gave ministerial jobs to conservatives, socialists and political newcomers on Wednesday.
