paris - The French voter returns to the polls on Sunday, this time before the second round of parliamentary elections. In the last few weeks, the French have already entered the ballot box to elect a president. Last Sunday was the first round of parliamentary elections.
The voters may be voting, which translates into a low turnout. During the first round of parliamentary elections only 48.2 percent of the electorate arrived. The voters then gave their support to La République and Marche (LREM), from President Macron. The LREM could look forward to about a third of the votes.
According to the polls, the new party will even out on 415 to 445 of the total 577 seats of the parliamentary assembly in Paris, the Assembly Nationale. That poses major political problems. In particular, the Socialists are in the corner where the clashes fall. Now they occupy 273 seats, but the polls indicate a loss of maybe 240 seats.
