Emmanuel Macron announced the dissolution of the National Assembly just minutes after the announcement of the first estimates of the results of the European elections on Sunday, June 9. A “serious, heavy” decision taken in light of the National Rally's overwhelming victory in the European elections. “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,” declared the President of the Republic. With this decision, and the call for Article 12 of the Constitution of the 5th Republic, Emmanuel Macron has de facto acted on the organization of early legislative elections aimed at forming a new National Assembly.

The French are therefore called upon to take action. vote in new legislative elections which will arrive quickly, very quickly, since the Constitution provides for new elections within 20 years. ;agrave; 40 days following dissolution. Emmanuel Macron has already stopé the dates of the election: 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. Either less than three weeks after the head of state's announcement. Why so early ? Well because in addition to the deadline provided for by the Constitution, the agenda for the coming months is full of questions. particularly with the start of the Olympic Games and the arrival of school holidays, which limited the options for organizing the ballots. 

From the day after the announcement of the dissolution of the National Assembly and the elections organization the ;legislative, the different parties have entered into the campaign, which will be express with &àgrave; barely three weeks between the announcement and the polls. The first key step is is that of the submission of applications whose deadline was set for Sunday June 16, 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.

For these 2024 legislative elections, the left has beené the first to call a union and even à the formation of a "new popular front" from June 10. After several days of discussions, the four left-wing forces found their solution. an agreement to present only one single candidate in the 577 constituencies in 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.

On the right, alliances have also been added. announced, but with turmoil. The president of the Les Républicains party, Eric Ciotti, proposed an alliance with the National Rally, which showed itself to be very supportive. inclined &agrav; a rapprochement. But the majority LR members oppose this agreement 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. any alliance. Eric Zemmour announced Only 330 candidates out of 577 constituencies.

Face &agrav; these two alliances in formation, the majorityé presidential office reacts. Emmanuel Macron sought; à expand its majority to the forces he considers to be part of the Republican arc, in particular the socialist left reactive to the alliance with LFI and the right of the Republicans rejecting the agreement with the RN. 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 comes in second position in voting intentions with a little over 20% and the majority of votes. 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 studies by the various institutes, 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).
