A new slap for the party of Emmanuel Macron
Behind, the National Rally is severely blamed, with only 20.5%. This is a real disappointment for the party of Marine Le Pen, who relied on this streak to win one or more regions, and thereby build momentum for the presidential election of 2022.
Finally, as was to be expected, the presidential majority brought up the rear very far behind, with barely 7%. This new slap, after that of the municipal elections of 2020, cruelly confirms the lack of local anchoring from which La République en Marche, the party of Emmanuel Macron, suffers.
