About our 2024 Parliamentary Elections in France news

Latest news on the 2024 French legislative election, providing comprehensive coverage of the snap parliamentary elections called by President Emmanuel Macron following his party's defeat in the European elections.

On 9 June 2024, President Emmanuel Macron dissolved the National Assembly and called for a snap legislative election to be held on 30 June and 7 July, after his Renaissance party suffered a heavy defeat to the right-wing National Rally in the European Parliament elections. The decision came as a surprise and was seen as a risky move by Macron.

The election will see 577 deputies elected to the National Assembly, with a two-round system in single-member constituencies. Major parties and coalitions contesting the election include Macron's centrist Ensemble alliance, the left-wing New Ecological and Social People's Union (NUPES), and the far-right National Rally led by Jordan Bardella. Opinion polls suggest a tight race between the three main blocs.

In the wake of the European election results, left-wing parties have called for unity to prevent a National Rally victory. Far-left politician François Ruffin urged all left-wing parties, including the Greens, to form a "Popular Front". Similar calls for unity were echoed by Socialist Party leader Olivier Faure, Greens leader Marine Tondelier, and French Communist Party leader Fabien Roussel.

The snap election comes at a crucial time for France, with the country facing economic challenges, social unrest, and the upcoming 2024 Paris Olympics. The election outcome will have significant implications for France's political landscape and its role in the European Union.

Our NewsNow feed on the 2024 French legislative election provides up-to-date coverage from reliable sources, ensuring you stay informed about the latest developments, opinion polls, and analysis. As the campaign unfolds, we will bring you comprehensive insights into the strategies of the main parties, key battleground constituencies, and the issues that matter most to French voters.
