Four left-wing parties in France have agreed in principle to form an alliance to challenge President Emmanuel Macron at June’s parliamentary elections.
The Socialists, Greens, Communists and Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s far-left France Unbowed party reached a draft agreement after all-night negotiations.
Mr Mélenchon, who just failed to make the presidential run-off in April, is looking for a majority of MPs.
All the parties involved hailed the agreement as historic.
The leader of the French Communist Party, Fabien Roussel, said no party on the left could win alone against Mr Macron.
