HistoryEdit

After the rallying of MoDem president François Bayrou to the candidacy of Emmanuel Macron, the party was reserved dozens of constituencies in the subsequent legislative elections,[1] hoping to secure at least 15 deputies, the number required to form a parliamentary group.[2] The party ultimately won 42 seats in the National Assembly.[3]

On 25 June, Marc Fesneau was unanimously elected president of the MoDem group by its 42 members.[4]

At the time of its formation on 27 June, the parliamentary group had 47 deputies, including 4 associated members.[5]
