PARIS (Reuters) - French president-elect Emmanuel Macron's party will get, together with centrist allies, the largest share of the vote in mid-June parliamentary elections, according to a Harris Interactive poll published on Thursday.

Macron's Republic on the Move party would get 29 percent of the votes, versus 20 percent each for the conservative The Republicans and the far-right National Front.

The poll did not forecast how many seats each party would get.
