Among those who has decided to question Emmanuel Macron’s leadership is La France Insoumise party whose leader Jean-Luc Melenchon has long been a vocal critic of the current leadership. French Communist Party and the Socialist Party which ruled the country before the 2017 presidential elections also joined the discussion.
