French President Emmanuel Macron’s approval rating is now lower than the percentage that diesel fuel went up since the beginning of the year, both are around 23 per cent, with some recent reports claiming Macron was at 21 per cent.
Even more worrying for Emmanuel, perhaps, is that French left-wing parties, according to BFMTV’s parliamentary source, have agreed a discussion of a vote of no-confidence in the country’s government.
The left-wing parties of the French parliament are the Socialist Party, La France Insoumise (Unbowed France), and the Communist Party. Their decision comes after weeks of yellow vest protests in response to escalating fuel prices and the call by the protesters for Macron to resign.
Whilst Macron has asked political forces, trade unions and entrepreneurs to call for peace in the country, Harris Interactive’s research has found that over 70 per cent of the French public support the demonstrations, with firefighters and ambulance services having joined in the protests and the French police union set to join in the protests beginning with Saturday’s planned demonstrations.
