Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Trying to make sense of the alphabet soup of parties with small tallies of seats...

Le Monde gives Bayrou's supporters four seats:

93 Seine St-Denise 5th
35 Ile-et-Vilain 6th
64 Pyrenees Atlantiques 7th
64 Pyrenees Atlantiques 4th

However the official results only tally Bayrou with three.

What gives? And are there other variations across different scorecards?

Jean-Christophe Lagarde, the 93 deputy, has been very reluctant to see the UDF transformed into the Modem, and had an agreement with the local UMP, so he didn't have to face an UMP candidate ; however he hasn't joined the "new center". No one knows for sure what he is.

THere's also one DOM-TOM deputy, I believe, from Mayotte, who won an MD ticket -- taking a seat away from the UMP! I don't know if he or she has announced where he or she will sit in the Assembly.
