Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Note that the first round has already finished in the 11 constituencies for French citizens living overseas.

Those who bother to register and vote are generally right wingers : Macronists won 10 out of 11 in 2017.

The second round will be between Macronist and NUPES in 10 out of 11 cases, and with numerous right-wing candidates eliminated, logically the Macronists will win everywhere... Unless a lot of (younger) people who didn't vote in the first round turn up.

Special mention for the 5th district (Spain, Portugal and Monaco). Manuel Valls (remember him? prime minister under Hollande) got the nod from Macron to be the official candidate, but the sitting Macronist MP disagreed and beat him in the first round. Har.
