Left-wing deputies led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the French National Assembly - lower house of parliament raised the issue of a vote of no confidence in the government before Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne's speech, Agence France-Presse reports, citing sources in parliament.

Borne is expected to address the National Assembly at 3 pm local time with a statement announcing the policies of the new government.

Nupes leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon repeatedly urged the premier to gain the confidence of the National Assembly. However, Borne each time refused this non-obligatory procedure.

The left union has 131 seats in the country's National Assembly. To adopt a procedure for a vote of no confidence, 289 votes out of 577 deputies are needed.
