Emmanuel Macron’s party wins big in French parliamentary elections

French President Emmanuel Macron won a crucial stamp of approval on Sunday as voters gave his Republic on the Move party and its allies a decisive majority in Parliament, although a record-low turnout cast a shadow over the victory.

The five-year term of Macron will be strongly supported by a National Assembly in which his party will have a large majority. Macron's party and its allies won more than 61.9 percent of the seats.
