In the short run, one can see a fracture within the French Socialist Party (PS) in two camps : the archeo-socialists (demand policy) and socio-democrats (supply policy).The French Government will have difficulties in getting a majority since the French Communist Party (PCF) and the Left Front (Front de Gauche), a good part of the Greens and the ‘rogue deputies’(frondeurs) are going to fight against the government and might vote against some of the upcoming economic measures, notably the budget scheduled to be voted on in the fall.

France is the world’s fifth-largest economy (and the second-largest in Europe, after Germany), so what happens in the country impacts growth for the region overall. It is critical for all of Europe for France to get its act together and its economy moving. That, however, is not happening.
The French economy has been in gradual decline for years, without any President or administration having done anything decisive about it. But now, ignoring the problems is no longer an option.

Le gouvernement dispose de huit outils pour réussir à gouverner sans majorité?
