Pollsters project Macron alliance winning big majority

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen won a seat in the French Assembly for the first time and the polls showed her National Front winning four to eight seats.

With 57 percent of votes counted, the Interior Ministry said Sunday that Macron's Republic on the Move! party had won 41 percent of the vote.

The far-right Front National, which now has two seats in parliament, was predicted to win up to eight seats, better than its first-round showing had indicated.

One of the challenges for Macron as he sets out to overhaul labour rules, cut tens of thousands of public sector jobs and invest billions of public cash in areas including job training and renewable energy, will be to keep such a diverse and politically raw group of lawmakers united behind him.

The conservative Republicans were likely to form the bulk of the opposition, but the Socialists faced a humiliating defeat.

"We are the only force of resistance to the dilution of France, its social model and identity", Le Pen said in a televised address in her northern fiefdom of Henin-Beaumont.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was among the first to congratulate Macron. Cambadelis was knocked out of the running for parliament in last week's first round of voting.

Turnout, however, was low, estimated at 42 percent by French pollster Elabe, while Ipsos/Sopra Steria placed it at around 43 percent.

Polls suggest En Marche!, the fledgling party he founded only past year, may win up to 450 of the 577 seats in the national assembly, upsetting the established parties' grip on power.


But there are reasons why a resounding victory in the parliamentary elections for Emmanuel Macron's party could spell bad news for France and the president himself.

Her victory would be a rare bright spot for Le Pen's nationalist and anti-EU party which was once hoping to emerge as the principal opposition to Macron in parliament.

In the first round, Macron's party and Moderate Democrats won a combined 32.3 per cent of the vote, reports the BBC.

The firebrand and influential leader of new far-left party France Unbowed, Jean-Luc Melenchon, is also seeking a seat from the southern port of Marseille. His centrist Republic on the Move! party is expected to win more than 400 seats. The party's leader, Jean-Christophe Cambadélis, immediately stood down.

It is also entirely unexpected: Macron was unknown three years ago and initially given little chance of emerging as president, but he and his 16-month-old REM have tapped into widespread desire for change.

Exit polls such as Ipsos/Sopra Steria and Elabe have projected abstention rates of between 57 and 58 percent.

Pollsters forecast them securing up to 470 seats, but low turnout in the first round has led critics to question the strength of the mandate for Macron's ambitious reform agenda.

"You can not leave the prospects for the assembly as they stand - our country needs an opposition to function", Le Pen has said.
