Several outgoing MPs or political figures failed to be elected as MPs. From both the left and the right, they will not sit in the National Assembly despite their presence in the second round of the legislative elections. A brief overview of the main figures eliminated.

They failed to get re-elected. The second round of the legislative elections saw several political figures lose their vote and, de facto, their mandate as MPs. On both the left and the right, several will not sit again in the new National Assembly.

Historical figures of the majority defeated

Sensing the relative majority slipping away, several ministers entered the race for deputy. While everything went well for Prime Minister Gabriel Attal and Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin, Stanislas Guérini, Minister of the Civil Service, and Sarah El Haïry, Minister Delegate in charge of Children, were both defeated, respectively in the 3rd constituency of Paris and the 5th of Loire-Atlantique.

The former Minister of Health at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic Olivier Véran was also defeated. The former government spokesperson was beaten in the 1st constituency of Isère, where he had been a member of parliament since 2012.

On the left, defeated symbols

Despite the victory of the left bloc, several figures failed in the legislative elections. This is the case of Rachel Keke, figure of the strike of the chambermaids of the Ibis Batignolles hotel who was elected in 2022 under the label La France insoumise. Leading in the first round with 49.33% of the votes, she was beaten by a little more than 500 votes by the LR mayor of L’Haÿ-les-Roses supported by the presidential camp

Three times a candidate in the presidential election and just as many in the legislative elections, Philippe Poutou of the NPA has failed again, beaten in the 1st constituency of Aude where he only received 38.56% of the votes.

Stinging defeats on the right

He had been a member of the National Assembly for 27 years and was defeated on Sunday. The president of Debout la France Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, deputy for the 8th constituency of Essonne since 1997, was playing for his re-election in a three-way race in which he came second, with 37.48% of the vote behind the candidate of the New Popular Front Bérenger Cernon, a young thirty-something new to politics.

Having come out on top in the first round with 35.58% of the vote, Meyer Habib, the LR MP close to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was finally defeated in the second round. In this constituency, it was finally the majority candidate Caroline Yadan, who won with 52.7% of the vote.
