France’s Socialist party to reach agreement with far-left

France’s Socialist party to reach agreement with far-left - France’s Socialist party and Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s far-left La France Insoumise (LFI) party have reached an agreement in principle to form an alliance for June’s parliamentary election. The move comes in an attempt to deprive Emmanuel Macron of a majority in parliament and block his pro-business agenda following his re-election in April. If the agreement between the LFI and the Socialists is confirmed, the French left will be united for the first time in 20 years.
