The leader of the National Rally Marine Le Pen welcomed Sunday, the evening of the second round of the legislative elections, to have the group “by far the most numerous in the history of our political family”, which will ensure “an opposition firm” but “respectful of the institutions”.
“We will embody a firm opposition, without collusion, responsible, respectful of institutions, because our only compass is the interest of France and the French people”, said Ms. Le Pen from her headquarters in Hénin-Beaumont, stressing that the RN will have “by far the largest group in the history of our political family”.
Mélenchon: “the rout of the presidential party is total and no majority arises”
The leader of Nupes, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, estimated Sunday that the “rout of the presidential party” was “total” and that “no majority” presented itself, on the evening of the second round of the legislative elections.
The leader of the union of the left castigated the “moral failure” of the members of the majority “who lectured everyone all the time and who claimed to be the roadblock to the far right and who had the main result of having strengthened its ranks”.
The Prime Minister, Elisabeth Borne, elected MP
It should also be noted that the Prime Minister, Élisabeth Borne, was elected deputy with 52.46% of the vote against a Nupes-LFI candidate while several members of the macronie including Richard Ferrand, the president of the National Assembly, and the minister of Health, Élisabeth Bourguignon, were beaten in the second round of the legislative elections. The head of government submitted for the first time to the verdict of the polls in the heart of the Normandy bocage, in the 6th district of Calvados. In 2017, the outgoing LREM Alain Tourret was re-elected there with 68.34% of the vote against a National Front candidate.
