France just picked a president. Now it has a chance to review that choice.

French parliamentary elections will show if the people support President Macron.

If voters back the president, he will enact sweeping reforms.

If his party cannot get a solid majority, France will be thrown into turmoil.

The country has been hit by terrorist attacks. Unemployment is at 10 percent. French people are ready for rational change.

Polls seem to show that Macron’s party will do well.
