Outgoing MEP Valérie Hayer’s Macronist list trailed far behind with less than half of the vote at 15.2%. In the evening, the French announced the Elysée.

He is not fully assured of a second place finish, followed by Raphael Glucksmann (PS-Place Publique) with 14 to 14.3%, more than double his 2019 result.

Behind, Manon Aubry’s La France insoumise, where many elected officials denounced irregularities throughout the day, improved its scores compared to previous Europeans (8.3 to 8.7%), which redistributes cards to the left during a poll. 2027 Presidential Election.

Led by François-Xavier Bellamy, Les Républicains did not fare well at 7 to 7.2%, slightly above Marion Maréchal’s Reconquête list and the 5% needed to send representatives to the European Parliament.
