17.75 percent of the right-holders voted Sunday in the second round of the French parliamentary elections Sunday, which is one and a half percentage points lower than the first-round record, “the French Interior Ministry said.
Five years ago in the second round 21.41 percent voted in the morning.
If the trend does not change over the course of the day, it will be a record size, and only 45 percent of the voters will contribute to the urns.
According to the polls, Emmanuel Macron, elected a head of state a year ago, after his great victory in the first round of the Republic Movement (Republic) (LREM), is the only question of the second round, the proportion of the presidential majority in the lower house. Low participation contributes to the president’s party, which has 440-470 representatives in the 577-seat lower house, ie 75-80 per cent.
The French have chosen the fourth time in the last six weeks, but the election campaign started a year ago for the traditional parties ahead of the presidential election and the French voters were tired. The absurdity may also play a role, according to the surveys, that the French are treating the victory of the party leader as an irreversible fact.
The election started in the French overseas territories and counties and around 1.5 million voters in Europe that were not in Europe for mid-European time. Polling stations opened in the mainland on Sunday morning at eight o’clock. The urns are closed in the smaller polling stations at 6 o’clock in the evening, and can be voted in the big cities at 8 o’clock in the evening.
Emmanuel Macron voted in the resort town of Le Touquet in northern France, contrary to the previous four voices, this time alone, without his wife. In the morning hours, the former heads of state, Francois Hollande and Nicolas Sarkozy, and the leaders of the parties all cast their votes.
After his first round of victory in the party, Emmanuel Macron could expect the voters to confirm the result of a presidential election a month ago, and the president could, with the support of the National Assembly, launch his major reforms in the summer: liberalization of labor law to reduce unemployment and public law morality Constitutional amendment and the terrorist threat of the sixth extension of the extraordinary state of the Paris Assassination series on 13 November 2015, and then the new anti-terrorist law aimed at ending the extraordinary situation after November 1.
