ER Editor: The 2nd and final round of France’s legislative elections took place yesterday. Macron failed to get his majority, needing 289 seats but finishing with 234; Le Pen did very well (89). The far left coalition under the high-ranking freemason Jean-Luc Melenchon, WHO PUT MACRON IN THE PRESIDENT’S POSITION ONCE AGAIN, gained a lot of ground (137) but nowhere near enough to beat out Macron. Now, strategic alliances will start to be formed.
But as per our previous comments, it’s all a circus with the approved, pre-selected candidates jostling for position on a chessboard that has been given to them. A reminder that Macron ‘won’ a second term as President in April, amid reasonable suspicions of fraud. Melenchon had helped Macron openly; behind the scenes it’s suspected that Le Pen deliberately took a fall.
Abstention was very high indeed (estimated yesterday at 54%), unsurprisingly.

Historic score for Le Pen as Macron suffers major setback in second round
Although his party won, it could not get an absolute majority, which is why France will have a coalition government. It will seriously hamper Emmanuel Macron’s actions, depending on who the coalition is with.
PARIS – Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s left-wing coalition came second. In third place was Marine Le Pen’s RN. The RN made a historic breakthrough in the National Assembly, winning between 80 and 95 seats. The LREM (ER: Macron’s party) suffered a major setback, by not obtaining an absolute majority (between 210 and 230 seats), ahead of NUPES (between 170 and 190 seats). The Republicans scored between 55 to 65 deputies. With the historic score of her party, the president of the National Rally (Le Pen_ was re-elected with more than 63 percent of the vote in the 11th constituency of Pas-de-Calais.
Christophe Castagnière, leader of the Macron’s LREM movement and former head of the Interior Ministry, lost in his constituency to the left and Brigitte Bourguignon, Macron’s health minister must resign.
The current Minister of Health of France lost in the last parliamentary elections to the Ivorian Rachel Keke, who works as a cleaning lady in a hotel.
Keke comes from the left coalition, having become famous after organizing a 22-month strike of hotel workers demanding better working conditions.
Eric Zemmour, the president of Reconquête, himself eliminated in the first round in the Var (like all the candidates of his party) commented on the results of the ballot on Twitter. Zemmour’s strategy had been to divide and weaken the right. (ER: We had noted how he was funded at arms-length with Rothschild money. No surprises there.)
In the light of his successful endeavour, he faked concern about the inevitable outcome:
“The appallingly high score of the NUPES could have been avoided if the right was united. Despite the strong push of the RN, the first opposition force is Islamo-leftist. With a union, it would have been patriotic.”
Legislative 2022: no absolute majority for Emmanuel Macron, the NUPES loses its bet, historic score for the RN
Relative majority? Absolute? Or a coup de théâtre with the NUPES (New popular ecological and social union) which would obtain the majority in the Assembly? The main results of the second round of the legislative elections, unveiled this evening at 8 p.m.
9:20 p.m.: Jean-François Copé, former minister and mayor of Meaux, called on his party (the Republicans – ER: a globalist grouping, traditionally centre-right) to form a “government pact” with the future (relative) Macronist majority:
1/2 For weeks, I have been repeating that a government pact is vital between Macron and LR in order to fight against the rise of the extremes. The extreme left and the extreme right are absolute dangers for France. They both embody violence, tension and sectarianism.
2/2: Everyone is now faced with his or her responsibilities at the end of this electoral disaster for the President of the Republic. Security, public spending, secularism, reform of the State, it is now up to the Republican Right to save the country!
1/2Depuis des semaines, je répète qu’un pacte de gouvernement est vital entre Macron et LR afin de lutter contre la montée des extrêmes. L’extrême gauche comme l’extrême droite sont des dangers absolus pour la France. Ils incarnent l’un et l’autre violence, tension et sectarisme.

2/2 : Chacun est maintenant placé devant ses responsabilités à la sortie de ce désastre électoral pour le Président de la République.
Sécurité, dépenses publiques, laïcité, réforme de l’Etat, il appartient aujourd’hui à la droite républicaine de sauver le pays !

9:15 p.m.: Amélie de Montchalin, Minister of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion, beaten in Essonne, and Brigitte Bourguignon, Minister of Solidarity and Health, defeated in Pas-de-Calais, will have to leave the government. Clément Beaune, Secretary of State for European Affairs, narrowly won in Paris.
9 p.m.: Jean-Luc Mélenchon proclaims the “total rout of the presidential party” and underlines that the total score of NUPES is not yet known, hypothesizing a final result more favorable than the first estimates. “No majority is present”, he underlines, rejoicing in the defeat of “the trimmer” Christophe Castaner in particular. “I am changing my combat post”, launches the leader of Insubordinate France, for whom “the great springing of France has a face, that of the Popular Union”.
8:40 p.m.: “First place, but a disappointing first place,” admitted Eric Dupond-Moretti on BFMTV. “We will not have an absolute majority”, concedes the Keeper of the Seals on BFM TV, considering “a form of openness and flexibility”, for the future majority – who will be forced to do so, in fact …
8:30 p.m.: Pillars of the macronie, Richard Ferrand, president of the outgoing National Assembly (6th constituency of Finistère), and Christophe Castaner, president of the LREM group (2nd constituency of the Alpes de Haute-Provence) are beaten and will not sit in the new assembly.
Ministers Damien Abad (5th district of Ain) and Olivier Véran (1st district of Isère) are re-elected and will therefore be able to remain in government. (ER: Alas, Veran gets to keep his seat, the 2nd, corrupt Minister of Health during the Covid nonsense.)
20h: Snub for Emmanuel Macron who, despite his solemn appeal last week, has not obtained an absolute majority in the Assembly: 210 to 250 seats for “Together!”, so it is far from it (the absolute majority is 289 seats). The NUPES, alliance of the radical left, would obtain 150 to 180 seats according to the first estimates. A lost bet for Jean-Luc Mélenchon, with a significant number of deputies but no majority and a relatively modest score for a union of (almost) all leftists. With 60 to 70 seats, the LR-UDI right will be essential because it is the only major political group that can form circumstantial majorities by being an ally of the Macronist bloc. Finally, the National Rally thwarts the predictions with an historic score:
7:30 p.m .: According to the FIFG, the abstention rate should rise to 54%, slightly higher than that of the first round.
5 p.m.: The turnout at 5 p.m. was 38.1%, down slightly from the first round.
