Macron's approval rate edged up to 46 percent this month, compared with 42 percent of respondents last month who said they were satisfied with his action, an IFOP survey for the weekly Le Journal du Dimanche said. IFOP - the French Institute of Public Opinion - is an international polling and market research firm.

The centrist leader had maintained support for his multiform political camp "The Republic on the Move" and the right wing Republicans party.

In the left camp, he collected 41 percent of the satisfactory votes from the former ruling Socialist party and 22 percent for the hard left party "Unbowed France", the poll's figures showed.
