Hello there! Last sunday was the first round of the 2017 French legislative elections. Their purpose are to elect the 577 members of the National Assembly, which is basically the equivalent of the British House of Commons and the American House of Representatives. People vote at a local scale, basically there are 577 "circonscriptions" and people who live in each one vote for a Member of Parliament. There are two rounds, the first with all candidates, the second usually with the two who got the best result in each circonscription. And basically, the chances are very high to have President Macron's movement (La République En Marche/REM, created in July 2016 by Macron) and allies (Mouvement Démocrate/MoDem, centrist party created in 2007) get a vast majority. Here's a projection of the future AN: And here is the old/current AN, since the 2012 elections won by the Socialist Party and allies: Finally, here is a map with the candidate placed first in each circonscription: So yeah, basically, the two main parties, the Socialist Party and The Republicans, ar absolutely destroyed. Far-right and far-left also got very disappointing results despite their candidates placing 2d and 4th for the Presidential Elections. What do you think? Answer down below!
