French legislative elections: low turnout

The turnout in the first round of the ongoing French legislative elections at 12 was 18.43%, slightly worse than five years ago: in 2017 the turnout four hours after the opening of the polls was 19.24%. The turnout appears to have been steadily decreasing in recent years: at the same time, in 2012 it was 21.06% and in 2007 it was 22.56%.

In keeping the French away from the polls, the minor interest aroused by the legislative elections just two months after the vote for the Elysée in April and the disenchantment of the French for politics probably weigh; but probably one cause is also the fact that the weather is beautiful and therefore encourages people to go to the beach or to the countryside rather than to the polling station.

Elections in France, the referee in Paris will still be Macron

by Andrea Bonanni

The first politician to vote this morning was former Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, considered a possible successor to current President Emmanuel Macron in 2027, who voted a few minutes after the polls opened. Others also voted in the morning, including left-wing leader Jean-Luc Melenchon, in his electoral stronghold in Marseille, and far-right leader Marine Le Pen, in Hènin-Beaumont. Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne also voted mid-morning in the Norman city of Vire. Macron and his wife Brigitte went to the polling station in the very early afternoon in the coastal town of Le Touquet, where they are registered.
