9:50 p.m . Emmanuel Macron's speech causes political parties to react
Adrien Quatennens is number two at LFI. He believes that Parliament is the beating heart and soul of democracy in this country. He is the blockage."
In a tweet, the new president of the LR Group in the Assembly Olivier Marleix said: "There is no other than the dialogue and respect mentioned the President. However, there cannot be a blank check on an undefined project. He said that the LR deputies would submit "next week's" proposals "on purchasing powers".
Senator LR Valerie Boyer invites Emmanuel Macron to "discover the existence of parliamentary democracy" and to show respect for the Fifth Republic. The French will always benefit from Parliament's opposition, debate, proposal, and voting.
Julien Bayou of LCI deemed the speech "fuzzy". He said that the President claimed he wanted to take action on climate change, but we don't believe him.
Eric Pauget (deputy LR) saw in the speech by the Head of State the "confessions and weakness of a president who was elected in default in April but realizes in June that he doesn't have the majority nor the confidence of France to govern".
9 p.m.: Responses from Jean-Luc Melenchon and Olivier Faure
Jean-Luc Melenchon (leader of the United Left) immediately reacted to Emmanuel Macron’s speech with skepticism: "It's useless to dissolve reality of the vote by flooding it with considerations, appeals, and all kinds." Former LFI presidential candidate said that the executive was weak, but the National Assembly is strong due to all the legitimacy it has received from its recent elections.
Jordan Bardella is president of the RN, lieutenant to Marine Le Pen. "This is the first time that Emmanuel Macron's arrogance has marked time: This change comes from his people, who have made him a minor president (. ..Our powerful group at the Assembly will be strong but constructive with the only compass of France's interest and that of the French. Nadine Morano believes that "Emmanuel Macron discovers institutions".
"His speech about the method aims at evading his responsibility and to modify nothing of his project", said the communist Fabien Russel. The socialist Olivier Faure responded: "No, the political forms do not have to answer him before they're ready to give him a blank check.
8:48 p.m . Francois Bayrou considers self-criticism hypocrisy.
Francois Bayrou, LCI, said that self-criticism is hypocrisy. But that's not the point. French leaders have sent a clear message to all: You must change how you govern. This is unacceptable. We are currently in a critical democratic crisis. It would be foolish to reduce the message. We need to change the relationship between citizens and governments. "I believe Emmanuel Macron understood the message well.
When asked about his desire to join the government, he replied that he was not looking for "benefits and places". They are mine, not mine.
Concerning his comments about Elisabeth Borne he denies calling her a "technocrat".
8 p.m.: Speech of Emmanuel Macron
This evening, the President of The Republic will speak. These are the highlights of the talk.
"On April 24, your confidence in me was renewed. Your deputies were elected on June 12th and 19th.
"I cannot ignore the strong abstention. Voting is vital, but not everyone feels it. It is difficult to ignore the deep divisions within our society.
"As in most Western democracies no one political force can make laws by itself. Expanding is the only way to go. We must learn to govern differently and act in your best interest. In dialogue and respect, we can build new compromises with this Assembly. This is exactly what you requested, and I have taken note.
"This does not have to mean immobility. It should be about making agreements through dialogue, respect, and requirement.
"I can hear the desire for change that this country has clearly demanded.
"Because it's my role as a guarantor for the institutions, I exchanged yesterday with all the leaders from the political parties that are capable of creating a group within the National Assembly. The majority of leaders I've met have rejected the idea of a government for national unity. This is not, to my knowledge, justified. In this crucial moment, it is possible to find a greater and more clear majority than we expected.
"As many of you know, I have believed in the necessity for political overcoming from day one. It is something I have been practicing and it has helped me to fulfill my aspirations to end political quarrells and to promote dialogue and compromise. I hope this excess in politics will be continued with clarity and responsibility.
Clarity does not mean losing the integrity of the project you selected in April. It is a project that stands for independence in France, our country, and Europe. We must be stronger. It is a project for social and environmental progress. Security and justice projects. It must be a financially sound and responsible project.
"This is why we will need to take emergency measures starting this summer to meet the country's needs and your daily life. A law to increase purchasing power, to make work more affordable, to make the first steps towards full employment, to make strong energy and climate choices, and to take emergency measures to protect your health. This progress cannot be funded by higher taxes or more economic or budgetary debt.
"Accountability: It will be necessary for compromises to be made, with full transparency.
"To move forward it is up the political groups to declare in full transparency how far and what they are willing to go.
"I trust everyone's sense of responsibility. You are my greatest asset. You made clear choices. It's my job to bring them to fruition.
"I will only have one compass. That we move at the rate that the general interest is our goal. We will all find the way to our collective success together.

Edouard Philippe, however, closes the door on discussions with La France insoumise or National Rally: "I don't believe that the relative majority intends to build a government deal with the far right and far left. This is not what I want. It seems that the Republican group, which I just drew, could be the largest numerical group on the spectrum. A discussion could then begin with the socialist and ecological groups.
