Axelle Lemaire

Results for the Second Round of the French Parliamentary Elections

By France

François Hollande received a clear majority and is now free to move forward and form his government before getting on with his programme of reforms.  For the first time during the 5th Republic, the  Socialiste Party will be controlling both the Asssemblée nationale and the Senate.

More specifically, in total, 8 out of the 11 new seats created for the French living abroad have been won by the left.

In Northern Europe, Axelle Lemaire (PS) was elected with a 54.8% majority against Emmanuelle Savarit (UMP) who achieved 45.2% with less than 21% of registered voters in Northern Europe taking part in the second round. However, it certainly showed that people had, to a certain extent, lost interest in the whole election process. In London, the level of abstentions was even higher with only 18.4% taking part.
In total, 8 out of the 11 new seats created for the French living abroad have been won by the left.
