Ellis Copeland | 18 June, 2017, 02:34

The meetings are due to take place in the last week of June and are aimed at trying to defuse the dispute between Qatar and its neighbours.

The centre-right Republicans Party and its Union of Democrats and Independents ally would garner 60 to 80 seats and the Socialists of former president Francois Hollande just 22 to 35, according to the poll.

French President Emmanuel Macron is inviting the world's innovators, engineers and business-builders to come to France as he tries to transform this country from a land resting on the laurels of its past into a "startup nation".

The French presidency earlier indicated Macron would meet separately with the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, and the crown prince of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed al-Nahyan, but later said "nothing was confirmed".

"It really looks like the president's gamble has succeeded".

The visit also materializes some of the electoral promises made by Macron who ambitions to further foster his country's relations with the Maghreb and with Africa.

Melenchon said Friday that Macron lacked legitimacy.

According to Raymond, The Republicans party has suffered hugely from a lack of leadership.

Many opposition leaders have stressed the danger of Macron facing little opposition or scrutiny from parliament under a constitution that confers huge powers to the president. The may find themselves with 20-30 seats in the new Assembly after the second round - 10 percent of what they had before the elections.

Out of the candidates running for presidential election, since not a single candidate got majority, apart from the top two contenders - Ms.

The Socialist party is considering selling its headquarters in one of the most expensive areas of Paris to compensate for the huge fall in donations and public subsidies linked to its rout.

Top three cut at Erin Hills in first for US Open

He describes the party as a progressive movement which combines elements of both the left and the right of politics.

The far-right National Front was on course to win between one and five seats, and the hard-left France Unbowed party between five and 15, it forecast.

"Saying that the old parties have been buried for good is premature".

"Even if LREM prepares to gain a large majority, it is a strong deformation of the reality of French society".

He also expressed France's interest in reinforcing cooperation with Morocco to address "territorial disparities and the promotion of the Advanced Regionalization Plan".

France saw the record abstention of a little over 50 percent during the first round of the parliamentary election.

As he stepped off the plane for his first visit to Morocco yesterday since his election in May, the French president, his wife Brigitte at his side, was welcomed on the tarmac by King Mohammed VI. The turnout is expected to be as low on Sunday, and would be the lowest since the 5th Republic was established in 1958.

Polling stations open at 8am (0600 GMT) on Sunday.

Camus believes that the abstention was due to a certain fatigue of voters, exhausted of never-ending political campaigning since the presidential campaign started last September.
