525 participation a record since 1994 – LExpress

A democratic surge. Participation in the European elections this Sunday June 9 should be around 52.5% according to an Ifop-Fiducial estimate for TF1 and LCI, above that of 2019 which reached 50.1%. If this figure were confirmed, it would constitute a clear progression after the rebound already recorded in 2019: participation amounted to 42.43% in 2014 and 40.6% in 2009. This is the best participation score since the 1999 election.

In France, the National Rally led by Jordan Bardella dominated the vote with more than 31.5% of the votes, far ahead of President Macron’s Renaissance party (15.2%) and the social democratic left led by Raphaël Glucksmann (around by 14%), according to estimates from polling institutes. The RN would thus garner 31 of the 81 French MEPs.
