German Vice Chancellor Relieved at French Election Outcome


German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck is relieved about the outcome of the parliamentary elections in France, in which the far right failed to achieve a breakthrough and a left-wing coalition unexpectedly emerged as the winner.

Habeck said France now faces the daunting challenge of forming a government — especially since no political camp has won the 289 seats needed to secure an outright majority in the National Assembly — but that it is heartening to see centrist and left-wing parties working together to prevent France from becoming too nationalistic.

During a visit to Stuttgart on Monday, the Green politician called it an “encouraging election result”.
