France gears up for new battle between Macron and Mélenchon

Paris, June 17 (UNI) The run-off votes for more than 570 parliamentary seats in the French parliament due on Sunday, will see a close fight between President Emmanuel Macron and the Green-Left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, BBC reported on Monday.
"Nothing would be worse than losing ourselves in blockages, and adding disorder in France to global disorder," Mr Macron said this week.
During last Sunday's referendum, a new green-left alliance finished neck and neck with Macron's allies in the first round of voting. If they manage to continue their winning streak this weekend also, they could deny the president Macron a majority in parliament, making it harder for his government to act.
