In France, the Socialist Party (PS) has been plunged into a devastating crisis. The Socialist presidential candidate Benoît Hamon secured only 6% of the votes during the rst round of the presidential election whilst the results from the general election on 11 and 18 June were catastrophic.

Le Parti travailliste, malgré le gain de 32 sièges de députés, a perdu les élections en Grande- Bretagne pour la troisième fois depuis 2010. En France, le PS est plongé dans une crise dévastatrice. Benoît Hamon, son candidat à l’élection présidentielle, n’a recueilli que 6% des voix au premier tour et les législatives des 11 et 18 juin ont été catastrophiques.
