France begins voting in snap election

France has begun voting in a crucial snap parliamentary election that could potentially change the course of the country’s political landscape. With the far right National Rally (RN) led by Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella leading in the polls, there is a possibility of a historic shift in power.

President Emmanuel Macron’s decision to call for a national vote in response to the RN’s success in the European elections has caught many by surprise. The outcome of this election could have far-reaching implications for the future direction of France.

With a high turnout expected among the 49 million eligible voters, all eyes are on the first round of voting which will determine the candidates for the second-round run-off vote next Sunday. The outcome of this election is crucial in determining the composition of the National Assembly’s 577 seats.
