Low voter turnout in second round of French regional elections
After the second round of the French Regional Elections had a low turnout rate, Macron's party admits that this round, in which it did not win any region, is a "disappointment" for the presidential majority.
French President Emmanuel Macron's La République En Marche! party acknowledged that the second round of regional elections, in which it did not win any region, was a "disappointment for the presidential majority."
The second round of the elections recorded a low turnout, with two-thirds of the voters boycotting the elections, just like the first round.
The far-right National Rally Party also failed to gain any region, while the initial results showed the center-right, represented by the Republican Party, advancing.
French cities witnessed a great deal of abstention in the second round of the regional elections, after the participation rate collapsed in the first round of the regional elections, which took place last Sunday, to choose members of the regional councils.
