A little over four months ago, France's National Front was on the doorstep of the French presidency. But now the party is drifting farther and father away from power - and maybe even into obscurity. As of Thursday, the party that has long served as the bedrock of the European far right - a potpourri of populists, nationalists and Holocaust deniers - is in shambles.

Decenas de miles de manifestantes marcharon en París y otras ciudades francesas contra las reformas laborales del presidente Emmanuel Macron el jueves, un día antes de que las apruebe por decreto.

Macron alega que los cambios son necesarios para impulsar la estancada economía francesa e impulsar el empleo. [Read More]

The government of French President Emmanuel Macron needs to make good on its reform promises if it wants a shot at boosting growth durably, the International Monetary Fund said Thursday. As the French economy picks up after a long period of slow growth, conditions are now favourable for Macron's plan to overhaul the labour market, cutting deficits and lowering taxes to make a real impact, the IMF said in a report on France. Now everything is down to those plans becoming reality, the lender cautioned. "Medium-term prospects will critically depend on the implementation of the reform agenda," it said.... [Read More]

More rallies are expected on Saturday, staged by hard-left political party France Unbowed, in another measure of the resistance to 39-year-old Macron's pro-business agenda. Philippe Braud, a...
