French opposition asks for no-confidence vote on Macron's government

PARIS, July 24 (Reuters) - France’s opposition conservative party said on Tuesday it had asked for a vote of no-confidence in the government over the political crisis engulfing President Emmanuel Macron’s bodyguard.

“The government has failed and must be held responsible in front of parliament,” the head of The Republicans party at the lower house Christian Jacob told reporters.

A vote of no-confidence is unlikely to bring down Macron’s government as it has a solid majority in parliament. (Reporting by John Irish; editing by Michel Rose)
