Jean-Luc Mélenchon, leader of the France Insoumise extreme left-wing party, following his surprise French election victory: “We will recognize the state of Palestine as it is one of the available means for us to exert pressure.”

Marine Le Pen’s National Rally party, which won the first round of elections, was defeated in a crushing blow in the second round of the French parliamentary election.

According to the exit poll, Le Pen’s right-wing National Rally Party will win 132-152 seats, while Mélenchon‘s extreme left-wing alliance Popular Front will get 172-192 seats.

This likely means a coalition government between President Macron (LEFT) and the left wing Popular Front.
