“A tsunami”: historic result for Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National (RN), which buys seats at the Assemblée Nationale, establishing itself as the third force in parliament in the crucial ballots for the second round of the legislative elections. According to the projections announced at the close of the polls, the nationalist party would have obtained between 60 and 100 deputies, in front of the right of the Républicains (LR).

Numbers never seen before for the former Front National, which now allow the candidate defeated by Emmanuel Macron in the presidential elections on 24 April to form a group at the Assemblée for the first time. “The people have spoken. Overcoming the obstacle of a particularly unjust electoral law, they have decided to send a powerful group of parliamentarians to the Assembly, which thus becomes a little more national. It is by far the largest group of our whole political history “, Le Pen exulted, acclaimed by the cry of” Marine, Marine, Marine “in his fief of Hénin-Beaumont, in the north of the country.

Addressing the militants half an hour after the announcement of the results, Matteo Salvini’s ally evoked the “triumph of the saving idea of ​​nation“. He then assured that his party” will embody a firm opposition, without messes, but responsible, respectful of the institutions and always constructive. Our only compass is the interest of France and the French people “, he guaranteed.

Commenting hotly on the results on TF1, his right-hand man, Jordan Bardella, applauded what he considers one electoral “tsunami”.

“On a gagné! On a gagné! We won! We won!”, Shout the lepenist militants in celebration all over France. The Eurosceptic formation thus multiplies the number of deputies by 10: there were 8, they will be between 80 and 95 according to projections, third force in parliament behind Macron’s coalition (Ensemble!) and the gauche gathered around Jean-Luc Mélenchon (Nupes).

For the first time since 1986, the former Front National founded in the late 1970s by the far-right patriarch, Jean-Marie Le Pen, crosses the threshold of 15 deputies and can thus form a group at the Palais Bourbon. Le Pen had already collected a record number of votes in the ballot of the presidential elections on April 24, with 41.5% of the votes. In Gironde, the lepenist candidate Edwige Diaz defeated the current Minister of Health, Brigitte Bourguignon, who was therefore forced to resign from her post in the government.
