France’s far-right projected to win snap election

By Jordi Bou

June 11, 2024 - The far-right is forecast to win early elections but fall short of an absolute majority, according to an opinion poll published after President Macron’s decision to dissolve parliament.

Marine Le Pen's National Rally party would win 235 to 265 seats in the National Assembly, a huge jump from its current 88 but short of the 289 needed for an absolute majority, according to the survey by Toluna Harris Interactive for Challenges.

Macron's centrist alliance would see its number of lawmakers possibly halve, from 250 to 125-155.

Following a stinging European vote defeat by the far-right National Rally, Macron announced snap elections for the lower house of parliament, with the first round scheduled for June 30 and the run-off on July 7.
