Absolute or relative majority?
The rest of the French electorate will vote on Sunday. Voting determines the balance of power in the National Assembly between the Presidential Coalition! And the Left Nup Alliance. The question is whether the majority of the target will be the absolute majority (at least 289 deputies) or the relative one, which determines the ability of Emmanuel Macron to carry out reforms.
The vote will also say whether the National Rally (RN), which ran in the second round of the presidential election with Marine Le Pen, will get a group, or at least 15 MPs, which will give more opportunities and talk time. Voters will also be asked whether they can weigh in on the Les Républicains (LR) assembly that lost the presidential election.

The leader of Nupes also demanded the result “Clean” Otherwise “There will be unrest”. Marine Le Pen, for his part, called on his constituents to vote for Emmanuel Macron “President of the Minority”When reprimanded “The extreme left, which is the most sectarian, the most violent”
Restraint and vote transfer will be crucial. Less than one in two voters made it to the first round, and the trend could be confirmed this weekend.
