Paris, July 7 (IANS) French President Emmanuel Macron’s approval ratings were hit by fresh decline as the majority of the French thought his policy was unfair and fruitless, a poll has showed.

“The policy of the executive is considered more and more unfair and ineffective for the country’s economic situation,” the Elabe pollster said on Friday, Xinhua news agency reported.

The survey for Les Echos newspaper, Radio Classique and Institut Montaigne found that 76 per cent of respondents did not appreciate the President’s policy, calling it “unfair”.

Compared with February’s approval ratings, Macron lost 8 percentage points.
