France Election Result: Left parties dominate in general elections, Macron’s bet backfires, know who got how many seats

France: In the French Parliamentary Elections, the leftist alliance on Sunday won the most seats, defeating the far-right parties. However, no party failed to gain majority, due to which the fear of a hung Parliament has increased in the country. Due to this, the political turmoil in France may affect the country’s economy. This could have far-reaching implications for the war in Ukraine, global diplomacy, and the economic stability of Europe.

Know what the statistics say?

According to the official results released on Monday, none of the three major alliances in the parliamentary elections could achieve the magic figure of 289 seats required for majority in the 577-member National Assembly. According to the results, the leftist alliance ‘New Popular Front’ stood first with more than 180 seats, while the Macron-led centrist alliance stood second with more than 160 seats.

At the same time, the far-right party ‘National Rally’ led by Marine Le Pen and its allies had to be content with third place by winning more than 140 seats. However, this performance of ‘National Rally’ is much better than its performance in 2022, when the party had secured 89 seats. Modern France has not yet had to face a hung Parliament.
