Political Affiliation

Emmanuel Macron founded and serves as the honorary president of Renaissance, previously known as La République En Marche! (LREM), a centrist political party in France. His platform emphasizes market-oriented economic policies, social liberalism, and a pro-European stance. Although he is known for his support of progressive policies, such as climate action and social justice, his policies have drawn criticism from climate activists and environmental groups for prioritizing economic growth over environmental concerns and failing to meet his emissions reduction targets. Furthermore, recently protests were held in France against his plan to raise the retirement age, with critics citing concerns about poverty, inequality, labor reform, and social justice.

Please note The term “liberal” has a different connotation in Europe compared to the United States. In France, “liberal” is associated with free-market capitalism and is often used as a negative label by left-wing politicians. Emmanuel Macron is often referred to as a liberal but prefers to be described as a centrist or progressive.
