At the end of the first round of legislative elections, on Sunday June 12, Marine Le Pen asked voters in her Pas-de-Calais constituency to confirm her score in the second round of legislative elections and considered it possible to send “a group very important” from the National Rally (RN) to the National Assembly. “The voters of the 11th constituency of Pas-de-Calais placed me at 55% of the vote”, welcomed the candidate during a speech in Hénin-Beaumont, calling “all [his] voters to confirm and amplify their vote” where RN candidates will qualify for the second round, in order “to send a very important group of patriotic deputies into the new National Assembly”.

Marine Le Pen finally gathered 53.96% of the votes, narrowly missing her election in the first round. It suffers from the strong abstention, of around 53% at the national level, particularly unfavorable to the RN whose electorate, working classes and young people in mind, is more inclined to shun the ballot boxes. This had cost him dearly in the regional elections in 2021. In addition, in the event of strong abstention, the candidate must obtain 25% of the votes cast in the first round to move on to the second.
