Who wins, who loses?
The first estimates of the first round of the regional elections, carried out by Ipsos and Sopra Steria for France Television, Radio France and The Parliamentary Channel, were made public shortly at 8 p.m. this Sunday.
They are already rich in lessons, even if the vote was marked by a record abstention.
At the national level, the Republicans would obtain 27.2% of the vote, largely ahead of the National Rally (19.3%), the Socialist Party and its allies (17.6%), the ecologists and their allies (12.5%) , then LREM and the other components of the majority (11.2%).
Overview of the territories with the most important issues, especially in view of the presidential election which will take place in less than a year.
Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur: Mariani and Muselier shoulder to shoulder
Many polls placed him in the lead in the first round.
It is the case of little, since the candidate of the National Assembly (RN) Thierry Mariani would obtain 34.8% of the votes.
He would be narrowly ahead of his opponent Renaud Muselier (Les Républicains), who would be at 33.7%.
He will have to count on significant votes carryovers if he wants to keep his functions as president of the region, while the Greens would obtain 15.2% of the vote.
The second round promises to be very uncertain, in particular the 48 hours which open before the filing of the lists for the second round.
Hauts-de-France: Bertrand well ahead
He had indicated on several occasions that he would give up all presidential ambitions and even that he would quit political life if he was beaten.
Xavier Bertrand can breathe, and even widely.
The current region president would get 43% of the vote in the first round, according to this estimate.
He would be well ahead of Sébastien Chenu (RN, 24%), Karima Delli (union of the left, 18%), and Laurent Pietraszewski (LREM / MoDem, 8%).
The majority candidate suffers a major disappointment and it is not even sure that he can maintain his list in the second round, the threshold being 10% of the votes cast.
Grand Est: Rottner comfortably in the lead
The current president of the region Jean Rottner (The Republicans) would obtain 31% of the votes, ahead of Laurent Jacobelli (National Assembly, 20%).
Sovereignist Florian Philippot is given 20%.
Bourgogne Franche-Comté: The PS in the lead
The Socialists are savoring it.
Their candidate Marie-Guite Dufay would come first with 26.5% of the vote, ahead of his opponent from the National Rally Julien Odoul (23.5%) and that of the Republicans Gilles Platret (20.5%).
Julien Odoul, implicated for ironic remarks concerning the suicide of farmers and for accusations of fictitious employment, had experienced a turbulent end of the campaign.
Ile-de-France: Pécresse, solidly in the lead?
No one seems to be able to prevent his re-election.
First estimates concerning the score obtained by the current president of the Île-de-France region, Valérie Pécresse, should be published around 9:15 p.m.
Many voters vote between 6 and 8 p.m. in the Paris region.
