The Rassemblement National has achieved a historic result, winning 89 seats, allowing the far-right party to table motions of censure. The French parliamentary law allows for 56 members, and over 60 seats, a parliamentary party can submit bills to the Constitutional Council.

On the right, the Les R├ępublicains (Republicans) group has lost 22 seats, with only 78 seats instead of their previous 100. The Republican Party may even be a supportive force for the presidential side in passing bills.
