Partial legislative: outgoing in the lead in 3 constituencies abroad

The French abroad were called back to the polls on Sunday April 2 in three constituencies abroad: the 2nd (Latin America and the Caribbean), the 8th (Mediterranean rim) and the 9th (Maghreb and West Africa). At the end of the first round, it is the three outgoing deputies, a macronist, an LR and an environmentalist, who have the advantage, and by far. Their election in June 2022 had been invalidated by the Constitutional Council due to irregularities. The results of the second round will be known on April 16.

In the 8th constituency, which brings together several countries around the Mediterranean, including Israel, Italy, Greece and Turkey, the related outgoing LR Meyer Habib won 38.35% of the vote and will face, as in June, the macronist Deborah Abisror-de Lieme, qualified with 24.67% of the votes cast, according to the provisional results available on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Meyer Habib is close to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Constitutional Council had canceled its June election after noting "irregularities" and "manoeuvres" by its supporters "likely to alter the sincerity of the ballot".

In the 2nd constituency, which brings together countries from Latin America and the Caribbean, the outgoing Macronist Éléonore Caroit won 38.95% of the vote and will again face the LFI candidate of Nupes Christian Rodriguez, qualified with 26.23% votes cast.

In the 9th constituency, French people established in the Maghreb and West Africa, the outgoing environmentalist and Nupes candidate Karim Ben Cheikh is very far ahead with 43.24% of the vote, distancing the Macronist candidate Caroline Traverse, qualified with 16.31% of the votes cast, according to the provisional results.
