French Election briefing - Joint virtual event with LIBG 28th June
This Joint virtual event between LDEG and LIBG will take place at 6.30pm on Tuesday 28th June chaired by Irina von Wiese .
The speakers will include:
Francois deCoster from the Committee of the Regions (En Marche)
Marianne Magnin from Mouvement Democrate
In the midst of geopolitical and economic upheaval enveloping most of the world, French citizens went to the polls four times. On 24 April, they re-elected Emanuel Macron to the Elysee Palace, and on 19 June, today, they cast their vote in the second round of the parliamentary elections. Macron may have won, but there can be no doubt his position is weakened. For the coming five years, he will be facing pressure from both the Far Right and the newly united Left.
To make sense of this new political landscape and to tell us what this means for Europe, the balance of power in the EU and the relations with the UK, we are delighted to welcome Francois deCoster, Member of the European Committee of the Regions and Renew Europe, to a joint LDEG and LIBG event on 28 June.
