Legislative elections in Var: the turnout at midday in the second round has just been announced

This Sunday, July 7 at 12 noon, in the Var, the participation rate in the second round of the legislative elections is 27.97%, indicates the prefecture in a press release.

In 2022, the turnout in the legislative elections for the second round at the same time was 21.47%.

In the three constituencies of the department concerned by this second round, the polling stations are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., except in Toulon and La Garde where they are open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

At the national level, the participation rate reached 26.63% on Sunday at noon, a level not seen since 1981 and the arrival of the left in power.

There are still 501 deputies to be designated in France

76 deputies were elected in the first round and 501 remain to be designated. Last Sunday, the French placed the National Rally – and its allies from LR – largely in the lead (33%), ahead of the left-wing alliance New Popular Front (NFP, 28%), and the presidential camp Ensemble (20%).

The first results have been released in some overseas territories, which do not in any way suggest a national trend. In Guadeloupe, the four outgoing left-wing deputies regained their seats. In Martinique, the four constituencies went to candidates from the New Popular Front. In Guyana, the two outgoing elected officials supported by the NFP were strengthened.

A far-right government in France would be a first since World War II.

But the campaign between the two rounds was marked by 210 withdrawals of candidates from the Macronist camp and the NFP, in the name of a “republican front” reinvigorated by the prospect of an appointment of the president of the RN Jordan Bardella, 28, to Matignon. As a result of these withdrawals, the prospect of an absolute majority for the RN seems to be moving away.
