Nearly half of the Upper House (170 seats out of 348) is renewed this Sunday during the senatorial elections, the only national deadline - unless dissolved by then - before the European elections of June 2024 and the municipal elections of 2026. 79,000 grand electors are called to ballot on Sunday for this indirect election. An election without much suspense to reshuffle a Senate dominated by a majority of the right and the center, little worried by a dispersed presidential camp.
