The disintegration of France's political landscape following the presidential election victory of Emmanuel Macron is picking up speed.But the parties appear increasingly likely to separately field candidates who will compete against each other in the June legislative elections.The right is torn between wanting to work with Macron and wanting to clip the new president's wings.In a first for modern France, the mainstream left and right parties failed to qualify for last Sunday's presidential runoff, which saw Macron handily beat Le Pen with 66 percent of the vote.The former prime minister in Hollande's Socialist government is now belatedly trying to hitch his star to Macron's "Republic on the Move" party, but risks finding himself in no man's land: unwanted by either party in the legislative election.
