Emmanuel Macron announced the dissolution of the National Assembly only a few minutes after the announcement of the first estimates of the election results European events on Sunday June 9. A "serious, heavy" decision. taken in light of the overwhelming victory of the National Rally in the European vote. “I trust the French people to make the fairest choice for themselves and for future generations. “I have heard your message, your concerns, and I will not leave them unanswered,” said the president. the President of the Republic. By this decision, and the appeal to Article 12 of the Constitution of the 5th Republic, Emmanuel Macron has de facto acté the organization of early legislative elections aimed at compose a new National Assembly.

The French will therefore be called upon to do so. vote à new elections which will arrive quickly, very quickly since the Constitution provides for new elections within 20 years. 40 days following dissolution. Emmanuel Macron has already stopé the dates of the vote: the first round of the 2024 legislative elections will be held on Sunday June 30, followed by the second round a week later on Sunday July 7 2024. That is, less than three weeks after the announcement by the Head of State. Why so early ? Well because within the time limit provided for by the Constitution, the agenda for the next few months is busy. particularly with the start of the Olympic Games and the following summer and school vacation period, which limited the options for organizing the ballots. 

From the day after the announcement on the dissolution of the National Assembly and the organizational structure & Legislative elections, the different parties have entered into the campaign, which will be expressly with them. barely three weeks between the announcement and the polls. The first key step is is that of submitting applications, the deadline for which is Friday June 14, to allow for the submission of applications. the official campaign to begin on Monday June 17 and respect the two weeks of campaigning before an election.

Now is the time for negotiations before the launch of the official campaign. The left has beené the first one called à a union and even à the formation of a "new popular front" from June 10. After meetings and several days of discussions, the four left-wing forces announced that they would having found an "agreement in principle" on the distributions of the 577 constituencies with a view to the legislative elections to present a single candidate from the first round. According to this agreement LFI will present 229 candidates, the PS will have 175, EELV will have 92 and the PCF will have 50. "The essential work on the program is still under discussion" quot;, according to the socialists who affirm that there will be "no concession on our values".

Also on the right, alliances are being discussed, but they are creating a stir. The president of the Les Républicains party proposed an alliance with the National Rally which showed itself to be a strong candidate. inclined &agrav; a rapprochement. But that was without taking into account the majority. LR members who oppose the alliance and demand the dismissal of Eric Ciotti. The Zemmourist Reconquˆte party also attempted to to get closer to the RN via Marion Maréchal, but the Lepéist party refused to do so. an alliance out of fear that the more radical ideas of the Zemmourist would serve him badly.

Face &agrav; these two alliances in formation, the majorityé presidential office reacts. Emmanuel Macron seek à expand its majority to the forces he considers to be part of the Republican arc, notably the socialist left and the Republican right. He especially castigated the extreme left and the extreme right and denounced "unnatural" alliances.

The first polls on the results of the 2024 legislative elections have started. à be published the day after the announcement of the dissolution of the National Assembly. The studies currently give the advantage to the National Rally with more than 30% of voting intentions. The union of the left arrives following à second position with just over 20% and the majority presidential vote is only given in third position below the 20% mark. The same studies therefore logically grant more seats to the RN.

According to the Elabe study for BFMTV and La Tribune Sunday June 12, the RN would become the majority group with 220 and 270 seats (compared to 89 currently). The left alliance would form the second force with 150 to 500 troops. 190 seats (compared to 153) and the majority group presidential election would lose power with 90% 130 seats (compared to 249). The Republicans would move on to 30 or 40 seats (compared to 74).
