National Rally set for historic election victory in France - exit poll --The right-wing party is projected to win the first round of the snap parliamentary election | 1 July 2024 | The right-wing National Rally (RN) party is set to win the first round of the French snap parliamentary elections held on Sunday, exit polls show. The result is a stunning defeat for President Emmanuel Macron and his centrist Together (Ensemble) coalition. Macron called for an early vote following the poor performance of his Renaissance Party during the European Parliament election last month, when RN led by Jordan Bardella won the most seats allotted to France. According to the projections released on Sunday night by pollsters Ipsos and Talan, RN and its allies are leading with 33.2% of the vote, followed by the left-wing New Popular Front bloc (28.1%). Macron's coalition is third with 21%. The turnout rate was estimated at 65.5%, the highest France has seen in four decades.
