France President Meets Rival Parties After Losing Majority.

French President Emmanuel Macron will meet political opponents after his coalition failed to win a majority in parliamentary elections.
President Macron is now under pressure to secure support from rivals to fulfill his government’s reform agenda.
Neither Marine Le Pen’s far-right nor Jean-Luc M√©lenchon’s left-green alliance are keen to work with him.
Minority governments are a rarity in France, and President Macron’s Ensemble alliance is forty-four seats shy of a majority.
