En Marche! Names 428 Candidates for French Parliamentary Election

French presidential election candidate Emmanuel Macron greets supporters as leaves a polling station during the the second round of 2017 French presidential election in Le Touquet

French President elect Emmanuel Macron attends a ceremony to mark the anniversary of the abolition of slavery and to pay tribute to the victims of the slave trade at the Jardins du Luxembourg in Paris, France, May 10, 2017.

Like him, many are new to politics - and also like him, they hope to repopulate the political map of France with new faces and fresh ideas.

"The youngest candidate is 24 years old; the oldest candidate is 72 years old", Ferrand said. His team promised on Thursday not to put up a candidate against a man who represents a wing of the party whose political views are close to Macron's.

The rejection could prove troublesome for Valls, who risks expulsion from his Socialist Party for backing Macron's candidacy. More than 19,000 applied and resumes are still coming in.

The German government says new French President Emmanuel Macron will meet Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Monday.

Macron's battle to get these candidates elected begins now.

"We won't change our criteria, no special treatment ...", Ferrand said, "but we note the singularity of this prime minister in office in recent years and we don't seek quarrels with this one or that one".

On the tricky decision of whether to accept former Socialist prime minister Manuel Valls, Ferrand said the party had not selected him, but would not field a rival against him in his constituency south of Paris.

An initial batch of 14 legislative candidates previously announced in April by Macron's camp offers a taste of how Macron's grassroots, startup-style movement sought to recruit outside the circle of career politicians.

Outgoing French President Francois Hollande will delegate his powers to Macron on Sunday. She said one of her main motives for launching into politics under Macron's banner is fighting the rise in France of the political extremes.

He is building a party structure from the wreckage of the Socialists, whose candidate pooled only 6 percent of the presidential vote in the first round, and the badly-bruised moderate wing of The Republicans conservative party whose candidate was also eliminated early on.

The list included Hollande's communications advisor Gaspard Gantzer and former environment junior minister Barbara Pompili, an ex-Greens lawmaker, but few well-known names - reflecting the emphasis Macron had placed on building a party on civil society.

In the village of Pieusse where Robert lives, Le Pen received 271 votes in Sunday's runoff, five more than Macron's 266.

Seeking to emulate Macron's route to power outside the traditional parties, defeated Socialist presidential candidate Benoit Hamon has announced his own movement, as has a separate group of Socialists including Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.

So far, he has come up with 428 names for 577 seats in the French National Assembly.
