A hard blow for certain candidates who failed to reach the second round of these early legislative elections. Among them, Fabien Roussel of the PCF, the former socialist minister Jérôme Cahuzac and even Clément Beaune, former member of the Castex and Borne governments.

If some were elected in the first round, for others, the campaign stops here, due to a lack of sufficient votes in their constituency to reach the second round.

Former Minister for Europe and Transport Clément Beaune was eliminated in the first round of the legislative elections in Paris, beaten by the socialist Emmanuel Grégoire, according to the final results provided by the Ministry of the Interior.

Fabien Roussel

The boss of the PCF Fabien Roussel announced on Sunday evening that he would be eliminated in the first round of the legislative elections by the RN candidate in the 20th constituency of the North, saying he was “beaten but not defeated”. “Many of you will be disappointed by the national results and also the results in this constituency where […] the candidate of the National Rally wins in the first round by obtaining 50.3% of the votes”, he declared on LCP, from Saint-Amand-les-Eaux. “Still standing”, he added: ” We must remain dignified in the face of what is happening in France and what is happening here, in our region, in our Valenciennes, measure what is happening in the country and always fight to repair what arouses the anger of our fellow citizens “. He spoke of the “strong, angry anger, sometimes expressed with great emotion” of voters. He promised to continue to “fight for the defense of purchasing power, for republican equality, for our services public, for community life, for our municipalities, for our territory, for our factories, for the dignity of each and everyone.

Beaten, not beaten.

Here in Amandinois as everywhere in France, we will continue to fight for our children, for the future of our country.

We will continue to fight against the far right’s project of division and social regression.
