Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, but there is little likelihood of a coherent majority. Whatever the presidential outcome, it's likely that LR will have the biggest group in parliament, by virtue of having a functioning political party and well-established candidates... which is not the case of any of the other three blocs.

The blood-letting on the left is going to be completely horrifying. I don't know that anyone has a clear vision of how it will play out nationally; I think it's best approached by examining a polity that one knows in some detail. In the Lyon region, unless the fratricide calms down, there will be a boulevard for LR and Macron's candidates.
