Marine Le Pen smiles again, nearly two months after she failed to gain entry to the Elysee. This Sunday, the leader of the National Rally won 53.96% of all votes in the first round in Pas-de-Calais' legislative elections. She is not eligible for the first round because she does not have 22.53% registered voters. The remaining 25% must be present.
The outgoing MP is now a favourite for re-election. She will oppose Marine Tondelier (candidate for Nupes), on June 19. Tondelier won 23.43%.
This result is actually in line with what was expected, considering the results of previous elections. Marine Le Pen would have almost been elected President of France in the first round, if France had voted as her constituency. On April 10, she received 45.15% of the votes. He then scored 63.41% two more weeks later, which was one of his highest national scores, in the second round that Emmanuel Macron lost to.
His constituency also contains the commune of Henin-Beaumont. The mayor Rassemblement National Steeve Briois was reappointed to the head of the city two years ago with flying colors (74.21% votes in the second round). municipal elections. Now, the question is whether she can beat her score in round two of the 2017 legislative election. Marine Le Pen, who received 58.6% votes, was elected five years ago.
Marine Le Pen must also mobilize nationally if her own re-election is not to be a formality. The objective is to elect 60 members of the National Rally of the Hemicycle without forming any alliance with Reconquest (the party of Eric Zemmour). Marine Le Pen's real challenge seems to be in this area, according to polls that predict an RN group of between 30 and 40 parliamentarians.
