French Opposition Calls for No-Confidence Vote Amid Macron Aide Scandal

France's opposition conservative party ThenRepublicans has called for a vote of no-confidence in the government amid an ongoing scandal with the head of President Emmanuel Macron's security team, who was filmed assaulting protesters during a May Day rally.

Critics accuse Macron of failing to punish Alexandre Benalla and say that the president has lost touch with ordinary people since he took over the country’s top job more than a year ago.

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