Emmanuel Macron’s alliance for the vote of parliament in the lead, majority uncertain: Projections

French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist alliance was on track to win the most seats in parliament after Sunday’s first round of voting, according to polling station projections, although it’s unclear whether it will obtain the majority.

His Together (Together) alliance was projected by four companies to win between 225 and 310 seats in the second round of voting on June 19, with a new left-wing coalition finishing second, for a projection of 150 to 220 seats.

Macron would need to secure at least 289 of the National Assembly’s 577 seats to have a majority to pass legislation in his second five-year term.

Both groups secured around 25-26% of the popular vote, which saw less than half of registered voters cast their ballots, resulting in a record turnout of 52-53%.

The far-right National Rally led by Marine Le Pen, which lost to Macron in April’s presidential election, won around 19% of the vote, which could translate into 10 to 45 seats, according to reports. projections.
