Brittany no more RN candidates, antivax out the Assembly... Six "unusual facts" about the 1st Round

Despite record abstentions, the first round for legislative elections on Sunday confirmed the New People's Ecological and Social Union's (Nupes), but did not guarantee Emmanuel Macron an absolute majority at the Assembly next Sunday. These are some lessons learned from the first round of legislative elections.

Brittany, anti RN land, has lived up its reputation. Marine Le Pen's party failed to qualify in any of the 27 constituencies. The National Rally is moving forward: Long resistive to far-right votes, the Bretons have placed a RN candidate in the third position in 19 constituencies.

A French interview that ended in disaster illustrated her situation. When asked about the "solution to this equation", she replied, "How to solve it: Less and less money at local level and an increasing demand for public services or services to large populations? Sophie Carnicer (candidate for the National Rally, 2nd constituency of Territory of Belfort), had answered "with a big blank." Before she could sink in, she said: "By saving...on migration?" She was shocked by his weak response and added: "I didn’t prepare, I’m sorry."

He seems to be unaffected by a television malaise. Sophie Carnicer was second in her constituency with 19.2%. On Sunday, June 19, he will be challenged by Florian Chauche (Nupes candidate), who won 26.4%.

Martine Wonner MP, who was known for her controversial positions during Covid-19, won't be returning to office for a second term. In the fourth constituency of Bas-Rhin where she received only 5.38%, the psychiatrist was defeated. She was referred to as Ensemble pour les Libertes 2022, which she founded in September 2021.

Francis Lalanne, another antivax figure, was eliminated in round one. The singer and antivax figurehead was a candidate for the 3rd Charente district. He received only 2.12% votes. He has made numerous conspiracy statements since 2017, calling for the army to rebel against the state during the pandemic. Francis Lalanne, in a column titled "J'appelle", published on France Soir, stated that "we must now place the state out of danger's way to French people" and demanded the "dismissal of" the head of state, Emmanuel Macron.

Joachim Son, exit. Forget about the anti-sanitary pass. Ex-LREM support of Eric Zemmour won only 4.5% of votes. He is 7th.

His accent from Southwest will not be heard on the Hemicycle's benches. Jean Lassalle, the brother of the former deputy candidate for the presidential election, will not be allowed to pass on his torch to his brother. Julien Lassalle (brother of the former deputy presidential candidate) received only 20.27% votes in the 4th District of Pyrenees - Atlantiques. He did not qualify for round 2.

He was installed as a shepherd in Lourdios Ichere in Bearn and he presented himself to the Resistors! Jean Lassalle created the Resistons! He had already tried his luck under the same colours for the 2021 regional elections. He scored 13.64% in Pyrenees - Atlantiques and 7.67% at the regional level.

For the second round, eight triangulars are planned: two in Hauts-de-Seine, one in Lot-et-Garonne and one in Lot, in Dordogne and Nievre. These triangular won't necessarily occur, and candidates can withdraw. Officially, the deadline for applications for round 2 is Tuesday at 6 pm.

Only one triangular voted against an LREM candidate in 2017, a Republican, and a National Front candidate. Thirty-four triangulars had been held in 2012. In 2007, only one triangular had been held five years prior.

They were highly praised. They were praised. Five candidates won seats in the National Assembly's first round of legislative elections.

There are four Nupes candidates among these deputies: Alexis Corbiere (7th Constituency of Seine-Saint-Denis), who was elected with 62.94%; Sophia Chikirou (53.74%, 6th District of Paris); Daniele Obono (17th Constituency of Paris), who won 57% and Sarah Legrain (in the 19th Constituency of Paris).

The presidential majority can count on Yannick Favennec as a deputy. He was re-elected with more than 57% vote in Mayenne's third constituency.

In 2017, four deputies won the first round. 36 were elected in 2012 due to higher participation.
