La République En Marche! (LREM) (English translation: "Republic on the March!"), is a liberal and globalist party in France. It was founded on 6 April 2016 by Emmanuel Macron, a former French Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs, who was later elected President of France in the 2017 presidential election by a landslide 66.1% of the second-round vote.[1]

It later won a landslide victory in the 2017 French Legislature Elections though this victory was not as big as pollsters initially predicted.

Ideology

Although Macron was a member of the Socialist Party from 2006 to 2009 and an independent from 2009 to 2016,[2][3] En Marche! seeks to transcend traditional political boundaries to be a transpartisan organisation.

Since becoming President, Macron has appointed a cabinet that is composed of more "right-of-center" politicians than left-wing ones. However, his entire cabinet supports the globalist and increasingly socialist European Union and increased globalization.

The LREM party, like radical Islam, does not respect women's rights and dictates women's dress.[4]
