France’s centre right keeps control of Senate in election; Greens gain

France’s center-right party looked set to keep control of the Senate after Sunday’s vote, while the Green Party said they now had enough seats to form a political group in the Senate, posing a new challenge to President Macron’s struggling centrist movement. Macron’s party La République en Marche has just 23 seats in the Senate, of which 10 were up for reelection on Sunday.

"Partial results also showed France's green party making gains, with leaders of the Europe Ecology - The Greens saying they expected to be able to form a group, handing the party a little more clout in the upper house." While it is encouraging to see that The Greens have made some gains, it is difficult to say for sure if this increment in the seats is a trend that will play out in the long term or not. If it does, it will force mainstream parties to adopt a more robust climate change agenda.
