High-Stakes Elections in France Draw Strong Turnout as Far-Right Support Grows

Voters in mainland France are participating in the first round of early parliamentary elections, with the potential outcome of far-right parties gaining control of the government. This would mark the first time since the Nazi era that far-right parties would hold power in France. The election results could have implications for European financial markets, Western support for Ukraine, and the management of France’s nuclear arsenal. Many French voters express frustration with economic concerns and perceive President Emmanuel Macron’s leadership as disconnected. Marine Le Pen’s anti-immigration National Rally party has capitalized on this discontent and has led in pre-election polls. A new left-wing coalition also poses a challenge to Macron’s moderate stance.
