  • Regional election in France : Front National leads.

    The German Magazine DER SPIEGEL today:

    Regional election in France : Election forecast: Front National clearly election winner:

    n the regional elections in France, a triumph for the political rights is emerging: First projected to the far-right National Front is the most powerful force. Who in the future has the majority in the regional parliaments, but decided in the second round of voting next Sunday.

    Three weeks after the attacks of Paris the party of Marine Le Pen came on Sunday in the first round of elections, according to exit polls nationwide to around 30 percent of the vote. That would be the best result in its history. The FN continued a campaign against Europe and immigration, called for the closure of borders and greater internal security. Le Pen is located in Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardy clear front, her niece Marion Maréchal-Le Pen leads significantly in the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in the Southeast.
    The conservative-conservative camp of ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy scored forecast to around 27 percent. The ruling Socialist Party President Francois Hollande come together with a leftist party nationally around 23 percent. You can count on the second ballot with the support of followers of the Greens and the radical left that landed together at over 10 percent.

    The regional elections will take place in two steps. For the second round, all parties to whom the leap forward over the ten-percent threshold on Sunday to qualify.

    As expected, Europe continues to move to the political right. The French posters will know better what FN are about and whether they are right for France.

    My view - if the political mainstream don't start talking sense on immigration, the more far right parties around Europe will start to lead the debate and drive policy.

            That reflects the turnout in most Western Democracy countries.
            The Apathy of the voters, and a general disillusionment in the ruling parties.
            Fringe parties gain.

                It is what it is, the turnout doesn't really make a difference. More people might have voted the same or different.

                Who do you think is the best party for France and why?

                  National front's fans are extremely motivated and massively go to vote.So things will be different may be next round.
                  What's the best for France ?
                  Everything but Le Pen.

                    Not good, and it isn't hard to see why.

                    In the last European elections, Scotland ended up with a UKIP MEP (he's also an utter ****) after a turnout of 34%.

                    At the General Election in 2015, turnout averaged over 70%, and resulted in an SNP landslide.

                    While I don't like the result of the indyref, an 85% turnout isn't to be sneezed at.

                    It's pretty obvious that if you give the voters something they want, they'll vote. It's not voter apathy, but the inability of politicians to care about the people they're supposed to serve.
                    Indyref2 - still, "Yes."

                      I believe you got closer to the truth, the disconnect between voters and politicians.
                      Now the elite got caught with the bill.

                        OTOH,it is not something new :a low turnout exists since a lot of years:50 % is almost a tradition in the US and in Europe .

                        Is it the fault of the political parties ? Maybe it is so that a lot of electors are not interested in politics.

                          Voters are lazy people who are not interested in politics, but only in material improvements .

                            In that case, the best hope is probably that Sarkozey steals some FN policy.
