Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The extreme right Rassemblement National (formerly Front National) had only one major victory: Perpignan (pop. 122.000), the southernmost large city in continental France. Louis Aliot, who's been Marine Le Pen domestic partner, will be the mayor.

This is the first time since 1995 that the FN/RN will be running a major city (over 100.000 inhabitants): the FN has been running Toulon from 1995 to 2001, but lost to the LR (mainstream right) in 2001.
