The former candidate for the presidential election came first in her constituency of Pas-de-Calais with 54% of the vote, against 23% for the Nupes candidate Marine Tondelier. A score that disappoints her voters, who consider that abstention prevents Marine Le Pen from being re-elected in the first round. Even if the Nupes hopes to beat the National Rally.

In the aftermath of the first round of the legislative elections, the National Rally (RN) seems to be consolidating its positions by winning just under 19% of the vote. A score that could allow him to form a group in the National Assembly made up of 20 to 45 deputies, according to projections. Marine Le Pen came out on top in Pas-de-Calais where she won nearly 54% of the vote against 23% for the Nupes candidate, Marine Tondelier.

“A mobilization problem” according to Marine Le Pen

A wide score even if the high abstention rate prevents Marine Le Pen from being re-elected in the first round. Which disappoints his supporters in his stronghold of Hénin-Beaumont. If the supporters of the former presidential candidate and outgoing deputy applaud their candidate at the announcement of the results, the abstention which deprives her of a victory in the first round nevertheless leaves a bitter taste. “It’s abstention, you have to respect people who don’t want to vote. People consider that we are not listened to”, notes a voter.

“It’s a problem of mobilization, I said it from the start,” said Marine Le Pen, who nevertheless consoles herself with the good results of her candidates in Pas-de-Calais. “In the constituencies in which the National Rally is strong, we are in the lead in good configurations.”

“One of the most difficult constituencies in France” for Nupes

Next Sunday, for the second round of these legislative elections, the candidate of Nupes, the ecologist Marine Tondelier, will offer herself the duel she was waiting for with Marine Le Pen. “We know that the second round is not going to be easy in this constituency, but we had already been told that we would never be able to overcome the first and finally, we are there”, underlines the candidate of Nupes. “So that’s not enough because we know that we are probably in one of the most difficult constituencies in France, but we didn’t show up here to make it easy. We fight for the people we represented.”

Still, Marine Le Pen came out on top in all the municipalities of the constituency, and it is hard to see how she could be beaten in her stronghold, in Hénin-Beaumont.
