French parliamentary elections. Big gains for far left and far right.

Macron has lost his center right majority in parliament. First time in a couple of decades that a French prez wont have this absolute majority. His agenda may be sunk, at the least he'll have to compromise.

Record low turnout. 46%.

A good day for Marine Le Pen.

In this time of pandemic, European war and economic stress, it's hard to determine why any political result occurs.

This is certainly not the most dire time in European history, but there's enough to skew any democratic election.

I agree.

Knowing what we do about the far right in France, any gains for them are a concern. And these wins are much bogger rhan expected. The extremists turned out to vote and the middle stayed home. Def. some lessons for Amerocams there.
