French voters in Slovakia elected Macron

French voters in Slovakia elected Macron

Former French Socialist prime minister Manuel Valls said on Tuesday he wanted to stand for President-elect Emmanuel Macron's political movement in June parliamentary elections, the first high-profile defection since Macron's election win on Sunday.

Mr Valls said that "I will be a candidate in the presidential majority and I wish to join up to his movement, the Republic on the Move".

"President Trump emphasized his desire to work closely with president -elect Macron in confronting shared challenges, and noted the long and robust history of cooperation between the United States and its oldest ally, France", the White House said.

His party chief, Richard Ferrand, said on Monday Macron's 'En Marche!' (Forward!) movement would change its name to "En Marche la Republique" or "Republic on the Move", so as to structure itself more like a traditional party. Macron's 577 candidates are expected to be announced Thursday and Macron himself will be sworn in on Sunday.

Benoit Hamon, the unsuccessful Socialist Party candidate in the presidential contest, said he would set up a new movement after several of his hallmark proposals during that campaign were abandoned by his own party.

Macron's opponent in the second round of the election, the far-right candidate Marinne Le Pen, was a bit of an exception to this rule.

Mr Macron, a relative newcomer with just three years' experience in frontline politics, has promised to rejuvenate France's jaded governing class.

Playoffs Round 1 Series Recap: Utah Jazz Eliminate the LA Clippers
It was a big boost of confidence for a team that hadn't won a playoff series since 2010. "It's unusual", coach Quin Snyder said. Griffin has missed a combined 83 regular-season games the past three years, appearing in just 66 percent of the Clippers games.

Russia also denied interfering in last year's USA election campaign after US intelligence agencies accused Russian President Vladimir Putin in January of ordering an effort to help Republican Donald Trump's electoral chances by discrediting Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Socialist Party official Jean-Christophe Cambadelis stressed Tuesday that it is "impossible" to remain a Socialist party member and run for office under the Republic on the Move banner.

Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election May 7, and since his victory, a video his campaign posted in February has been making the rounds on American social media.

Despite her defeat, the results also made record for Le Pen's far-right National Front (FN) party.

The French interior ministry said that with 93% of the votes counted, Macron had about 19.3 million votes, while Le Pen secured about 10.4 million.

"There is one extremely important criterion and that is the sincerity of (the candidate's) support for the presidential program", he told Reuters.
