⇒ 7:30 a.m. [RÉCAP’] What to remember from the first round of regional elections

► Massive abstention. The abstention would reach between 66.1% and 68.6% according to the estimates of the polling institutes, that is to say a record all the ballots combined in France, except referendum. Under these conditions, it is difficult to draw clear lessons from this local election, which analysts said on Sunday evening that it was ” trompe l’oeil “.

► The traditional parties in the lead. The first round is marked by the resistance of the left-right duo, the first totaling 34.4% votes and the second 28.7%, according to estimates by Ifop. The right hopes to keep its seven regions and the left its five in mainland France.

► Underperformance for the RN and low score for LREM. The RN lost 9 points compared to the 2015 election, a severe disillusionment for the party that the polls announced in the lead in several regions. Also in decline, the presidential majority candidates total only 11.5% votes according to Ipsos, a score which confirms the weak local presence of LREM.
