French President Emmanuel Macron's party and its allies will have a strong majority parliament after winning 60 percent of seats in Sunday's second and final round of elections.

Macron's centrist Republic on the Move took 308 seats, while ally Modem won 42 spots in the 577-seat National Assembly.
The margin will enable Macron to push through his promised reforms of France's strict labor laws and its ailing social security system.
