The Meteoric Rise of France's New President
Valls resigned as prime minister to launch his own presidential bid but in a shock result was defeated in the Socialist Party's primary in January by left-wing candidate Benoit Hamon. He's hoping to run in the Essonne department, his fiefdom south of Paris, but Republic on the Move officials said his nomination won't be automatic. "His voice is not insignificant, but his candidacy will be treated as anyone else's".
Mr Macron's 577 candidates in the elections are expected to be announced on Thursday.
Valls said Macron's victory Sunday over far-right leader Marine Le Pen it was a blow to populism across Europe that gave a "terrific" image of France to countries overseas.
Macron's party, previously known as a movement called simply En Marche, is preparing a list of candidates for next month's parliamentary election.
Le Pen has signaled her desire to transform her anti-immigration, anti-EU party into the main opposition to Macron, but there were already signs of an internal ideological battle about which direction to take.
The election offered a stark choice between Le Pen's plan to ditch the euro and break up the European Union, and the centrist Emmanuel Macron's pledge to deepen European Union integration.
Guillaume Balas, who coordinated Hamon's platform, said Valls "excluded" himself from the party with his allegiance to Macon's movement. I'm not living with regrets.
Parents demonstrate at school where 8-year-old was bullied My only child, my best friend and my first true love isn't here with us physically but I know he's here in spirit", she said. Branch said she discovered the video through the police report , which describes the footage as "alarming" and "bullying".
There is scepticism about Macron's ability to win a majority with candidates from his En Marche movement - "neither of the left, nor right" - alone, meaning he might have to form a coalition.
He has said he was aiming for an absolute majority in the lower chamber in June's elections.
Macron, at 39, was the youngest presidential candidate ever to run in France.
And if one party manages to steal a march on En Marche and seize a legislative majority, Macron will have to put up with whatever prime minister and legislation that party wants to pass - or risk losing his job to a no-confidence vote.
Outgoing French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday said he accepted the resignation of the current government led by Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, according to a statement from the Elysee Palace.
