French Parliamentary Second Round election 2017 Voting Live Results

France National Assembly Dates 2017

National Assembly Date: 11 June 2017

Legislative elections are scheduled to take place on 11 and 18 June (with different dates for voters overseas) to elect the 577 members of the 15th National Assembly of the French Fifth Republic.

The legislative elections will follow the two-round presidential electionin which Emmanuel Macron of En Marche! won the runoff againstMarine Le Pen of the National Front(FN) on 7 May after narrowly eliminating François Fillon of the Republicans (LR) and Jean-Luc Mélenchon of la France insoumise(FI), with Benoît Hamon of theSocialist Party (PS) trailing far behind, in the first round on 23 April. This marked the first presidential election in which neither of the candidates of the main centre-left or centre-right parties advanced to the second round. Since 1958, the newly-elected president has achieved a majority in the subsequent legislative elections; however, La République En Marche! is not currently represented in the National Assembly, which suspended its work on 22 February, and as such has no deputies attached to an associated parliamentary group or party.

After taking office on 14 May, Macron appointed Édouard Philippe, a deputy of the Republicans, as Prime Minister on 15 May. Philippe will subsequently appoint the members of his government on 17 May.

France National Assembly Second Round Voting Live 2017

To be elected in the first round, a candidate was required to secure an absolute majority of votes cast, and also to secure votes equal to at least 25% of eligible voters in their constituency. Should none of the candidates satisfy these conditions, a second round of voting ensues. Only first-round candidates with the support of at least 12.5% of eligible voters are allowed to participate, but if only 1 candidate meets that standard the two candidates with the highest number of votes in the first round may continue to the second round. In the second round, the candidate with a plurality is elected. Of the 577 constituencies, 539 are in metropolitan France, 27 are in overseas departments and territories and 11 are for French citizens living abroad.

  1. Voting in the second round takes place on Saturday 17 June from 08:00 to 18:00 (local time) in the
    French overseas departments and territories situated east of the International Date Line and west of metropolitan France (i.e. French Guiana, French Polynesia, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin and Saint Pierre and Miquelon), as well as at French diplomatic missions in the Americas.
  2. Voting in metropolitan France (as well as the French overseas departments and territories of Mayotte, New Caledonia, Réunion and Wallis and Futuna, and French diplomatic missions outside the Americas) takes place from 08:00 to 18:00 or 20:00 (local time) on Sunday 18 June.

The 15th National Assembly will commence on 27 June at 15:00 CEST.

  1. Voting will take place on 11th June 2017 morning 7 am onwards.
  2. Opinion polls have predicted that Macron's centrist La Republique en Marche (The Republic on the Move, LREM) party could win between 360 and 427 seats in the 577-strong parliament.
  3. There are 577 seats up for election, including 11 who represent French who live overseas. Each constituency represents about 125,000 inhabitants.
  4. If no candidate wins over 50 percent in the first round, the two top-placed go into the second round — as well as any candidate who won the votes of over 12.5 percent of voters on the electoral register (which is believed to represent around 20 to 21 percent of the vote).
  5. A total of 7,882 candidates are standing nationwide in a process expected to produce a deep renewal of parliament — not least because over 200 of the outgoing lawmakers are not standing for re-election.

Electoral system of France

The 577 members of the National Assembly are elected using a two-round first-past-the-post system in single-member constituencies. Candidates for the legislative elections will have five days, from Monday 15 May to 18:00 on Friday 19 May, to declare and register their candidacy.

To be elected in the first round, a candidate is required to secure an absolute majority of votes cast (i.e., excluding null and blank votes) with the number of votes secured equivalent to at least a quarter of registered voters. Should none of the candidates satisfy these conditions, a second round is organized in which only first-round candidates with the support of at least 12.5% of registered voters are permitted to contest. Should this condition be met by no or only one candidate, the two candidates with the highest number of votes in the first round may continue to the second round. In the second round, the candidate with a relative majority is elected. Of the 577 constituencies, 539 are in metropolitan France, 27 are in overseas departments and territories and 11 are for French citizens living abroad.

Voting in the first round takes place from 08:00 to 18:00 (local time) on Saturday 3 June in French Polynesia and at French diplomatic missions in the Americas, and on Sunday 4 June at French diplomatic missions outside the Americas. Voting in the French overseas departments and territories in the Americas (i.e. French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, and Saint Pierre and Miquelon) takes place from 08:00 to 18:00 (local time) on Saturday 10 June. Voting in metropolitan France (as well as the French overseas departments and territories of Mayotte, New Caledonia,Réunion and Wallis and Futuna) takes place from 08:00 to 18:00 or 20:00 (local time) on Sunday 11 June.

Voting in the second round takes place on Saturday 17 June from 08:00 to 18:00 (local time) in the French overseas departments and territories situated east of the International Date Line and west of metropolitan France (i.e. French Guiana, French Polynesia, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin and Saint Pierre and Miquelon), as well as at French diplomatic missions in the Americas. Voting in metropolitan France (as well as the French overseas departments and territories of Mayotte, New Caledonia, Réunion and Wallis and Futuna, and French diplomatic missionsoutside the Americas) takes place from 08:00 to 18:00 or 20:00 (local time) on Sunday 18 June.
