Leftists projected to win most seats in French legislative election, right falls short of expectations.

In a surprising turn of events, leftist parties in France have secured the most seats in the second round of the 2024 French legislative election, according to initial projections. The New Popular Front, a coalition of parties that includes socialists, greens, and far-left France Unbowed, is expected to garner between 178 and 205 seats in the 577-seat National Assembly.

President Emmanuel Macron's centrist party, Ensemble, came in second and is estimated to receive 150 to 170 seats. Marine Le Pen's National Rally came in third, with between 132 and 152 seats.

The leftist parties came together in an attempt to defeat the National Rally, with 28-year-old Jordan Bardella, the National Rally's pick for PM and a protege of Le Pen, calling it an "alliance of dishonor."


"Tonight, these electoral agreements have thrown France into the arms of Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s extreme left," Bardella said. "I say this with gravity: Depriving millions of French the possibility to see their ideas brought to power will never be a viable destiny for France."

While the National Rally is expected to significantly increase its number of seats, the results fall short of expectations for the party that won the first round of snap elections. Despite the surprising outcome for the left, no party has achieved an absolute majority of 289 seats, leading to a potentially complex process to determine the next Prime Minister.

A final tally of the results is expected by Monday. Voter turnout for the election was 59.71%, the highest since 1981.

This election has been closely watched by conservatives around the world, as the National Rally has been seen as a potential ally in the fight against globalism and the erosion of traditional values. The outcome of this election will have far-reaching implications for the future of France and the rest of the Western world.

It is important to note that the leftist parties in France have a history of supporting policies that are harmful to the economy and the traditional values that conservatives hold dear. The New Popular Front has proposed raising the top marginal income tax rate to 90%, which would be a significant blow to the French economy.

The leftist parties in France have also been vocal supporters of open borders and mass immigration, which has led to a significant increase in crime and social unrest in the country. The National Rally, on the other hand, has been a strong advocate for border security and the preservation of French culture and values.

The outcome of this election is a reminder that the fight for conservative values is far from over. It is important for conservatives to remain vigilant and continue to fight for the principles that they hold dear. The future of France and the rest of the Western world depends on it.
