French President Emmanuel Macron's ruling party achieved a "respectable" score in EU elections Sunday May 26th, a presidential aide said, after exit polls showed the far-right ahead of his Republic on the Move (LREM). 

"The presidential majority is holding up well," said the aide, who asked not to be named. "We never saw a ruling party have a score in the European elections as high as this when compared to the presidential election."
