The 3,327 grand electors created the surprise this Sunday in Seine-et-Marne during the senatorial election with the election of Louis Vogel (Horizons), current mayor of Melun, with 14.64% of the vote, but also that of Aymeric Durox (RN) with 12.98% of the vote. "I'm happy with the results. I am sorry that my running mate Sophie Deloisy is not accompanying me to the upper chamber. However, I would like to point out that the National Front's score is worrying. The Republican parties must unite to confront each other," said Louis Vogel.
For its part, the National Front speaks of a historic victory: "We were not many to believe in it at the beginning and yet... It is a great joy that testifies to our local work. I thank the electorate. This shows that we represent the future. We aim to establish ourselves permanently in Seine-et-Marne," says Aymeric Durox.
The left is on the rise
Overall, the Republican list led by Anne Chain Larché (LR) came out ahead with 35.17% of the vote and won two seats with Pierre Cuypers in the Upper House, even if it lost one en route.
The left progressed with 23.57% of the vote two seats for the list led by Vincent Eblé. He kept his seat and found himself with his running mate Marianne Margaté (PCF).
As a reminder, since 2017, the seats were occupied by Anne Chain-Larché (LR), Pierre Cuypers (LR), Colette Mélot (Agir), Arnaud De Bellenet (AC), Claudine Thomas (LR) and Vincent Eblé (PS).
