The leader of the far-right National Rally party, Jordan Bardella, admitted defeat in the parliamentary elections in France in advance

On Sunday, July 7, voting took place in France in the second round of early parliamentary elections. Despite the party's historically strong results, the far right may end up in 3rd place in the election results.

According to forecasts, the National Rally, led by Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella, was the leader and could potentially gain an absolute majority. At the same time, according to the exit poll results, the far right can take third place and receive from 115 to 150 seats in parliament.

Although this result of the party is historically the highest, it is significantly different from expectations. Jordan Bardella actually admitted defeat in his first comments after the exit polls.

Today the National Rally received the best breakthrough in history… Unfortunately, dishonest alliances this evening deprive the French of a policy of restoration. This evening, the electoral arrangements throw France into the hands of the far left of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, said Bardella.

Jordan Bardella also thanked voters for their “patriotic impulse”.

A record turnout in the elections was recorded in France

According to French journalists, in the first hours of the second round of voting, voter turnout was as active as in the first round.

Polls opened at 8 am, and by noon, 26.63% of voters had already cast their voice. By comparison, voter turnout for the 2022 runoff election was significantly lower at this time, at only 19%. Additionally, the 2024 result is the highest turnout in an election since 1981.
