Icon signs biography of French president-elect Macron


The French Socialist Party said Wednesday that it will soon announce if former prime minister Manuel Valls will be booted out of the party for publicly backing centrist President-elect Emmanuel Macron.

Webber said: "Adam's extremely clear writing and analysis impressed me immediately: his eye for human detail and careful examination of the stages of the Macron surge add a thrilling dimension to this tale of unexpected political victory". Party spokesman Benjamin Griveaux said Valls had not applied to the party's selection committee and had 24 hours left to do so. "I can tell you that, right now, we are discovering a lot of new friends".

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.

"As of today, he (Valls) does not fit the criteria that would allow the investiture committee to take him on, so., (until he joins) the national investiture committee that I preside over can not consider the candidature of Mr. Valls", Jean-Paul Delevoye, who chooses Macron's party's candidates, told Europe 1 radio on Wednesday.

Without that, Mr Macron would be forced to forge alliances, which could mean a watering down of his campaign promises.

The parliamentary elections are scheduled for June 11 and 18.

Prime Minister Modi had earlier greeted Emmanuel Macron for his "emphatic victory" in the French Presidential election.

But the party has yet to pick dozens of other candidates for the 577 seats at stake in the June elections, hoping more politicians from other parties will switch sides.

His role as head of the movement has been taken over by Ms Catherine Barbaroux, who has a management background in both business and government ministries.
