According to the first exit polls on the second round of the French political elections, Macron collapses and loses the absolute majority.

France today returned to the polls for the second round of the legislative elections.

In the race for the majority in the French Parliament, spotlights are on

Emmanuel Macron,

who sees 289 seats at risk, the one necessary for the Ensemble government coalition!

to govern with peace of mind.

But Nupes

, the Union of the gauche led by

Jean-Luc Mélenchon

, is also making his run to the last breath

, certain of being the first opposition force and ready to do anything for a cohabitation with Macron.

Again, it is an uphill challenge.

The

heat

- which yesterday reached 38 degrees in Paris and in some areas of France even 41 or 42 - could have weighed further on

abstention

, already a record last Sunday with 52.49%. 

In fact, the turnout

at the polls is decreasing.

At 12 he had registered half a percentage point more than last Sunday, for the first round.

But according to the Ministry of the Interior, the turnout at 5 pm was 38.11%, down from the same time 7 days ago, when it had registered 39.42%.

The turnout, however, remains 3 points higher than the same hour of the runoff day 5 years ago.
