Historic win for far right in French Elections in first-round vote

The aim is to block the government’s path to the far-right national rally. 

France’s political parties tried to form a united front aimed at blocking the path of the far-right National Rally (RN) government of Marine Le Pen on Monday after she won the first round of parliamentary elections. Historical achievements have been achieved. 

The RN and its allies won Sunday’s round with 33% of the vote, followed by a left-wing bloc with 28% and far ahead of President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist broad coalition, which scored just 22%., the official results showed. 

While financial markets rallied on relief the RN numbers were not high, it was still a huge blow for Macron, who won a snap election after his ticket was defeated by the RN in last month’s European Parliament elections. What was announced? 

“I am satisfied because we need change,” said Jean-Claude Gillet, 64, an RN supporter in Le Pen’s northern stronghold of Hainan-Beaumont — ‘Things have not moved, and they must move.’

However, others feared that the RN and its nationalist platform would lead to growing tensions in French society. 

“I don’t think people realize what’s going on, they’re just thinking about the cost of living and short-term things like that,” said Yamina Addo in the nearby town of Augnes, south of Lille. Said outside a supermarket. “I find it very sad.” 

Whether the anti-immigrant, Eurosceptic RN can form a government will now depend on how well other parties rally against best-placed rival candidates in hundreds of constituencies across France to thwart Le Pen. 

Macron was to develop an election strategy with senior aides at a meeting at his Elysée Palace. 

The leaders of both the left-wing New Popular Front and Macron’s centrist Alliance indicated on Sunday night that they would withdraw their candidates in districts where another candidate would be better placed to defeat the RN in next Sunday’s run-off. 

Mélenchon is one of the most divisive figures in French politics, exciting and frightening voters with his relentless tax-and-spend proposals and rhetoric of class warfare. 

The breakdown of voters shows that the Left Bloc has done better than the RN in attracting young voters. Jordan Bardella, the RN’s choice for prime minister if it wins a majority, focused his attacks on left-wing parties, issuing a message on social media calling the far left “an existential threat” to France. ” was declared.
