French parliamentary elections: is Macron’s majority at risk?

News Correspondent

Millions of French voters have been going to the polls in the final round of the country’s parliamentary elections – where President Macron is fighting to hold onto his centrist majority.

Mr Macron already won a second term in office in April, beating off a challenge from the far right’s Marine Le Pen. But this election is about control of the National Assembly. And it’s come down to a close fight between his centrist group – and an alliance of left wing and green parties.
