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 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 stop 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 organization of elections 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 announced, but with some turmoil. The president of the Republican party Eric Ciotti has proposed an alliance with the National Rally, which has shown itself inclined to a rapprochement. But the majority of LR members are opposed to this agreement and are demanding the dismissal of Eric Ciotti. The Zemmourist party Reconquête has also tried to get closer to the RN via Marion Marêchal, but the Lepêiste party has refused any alliance. Eric Zemmour has announced Only 330 candidates in 577 constituencies.

Faced with these two alliances in formation, the presidential majority reacted. Emmanuel Macron sought to broaden his majority to the forces that he considers to be part of the Republican arc, in particular the socialist left, which is resistant to the alliance with LFI, and the right of the Republicans, which rejects the agreement with the RN. He especially castigated the far left and the far right and denounced “unnatural” alliances.

The first polls on the results of the 2024 legislative elections began to 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 place in voting intentions with a little more than 20% and the majority presidential election is only given in third position below the 20% mark. The same studies therefore logically grant more seats to the RN.

According to the studies of the different institutes, the RN would become the majority group with 220 and 270 seats (against 89 currently). The alliance of the left would form the second force with 150 to 190 seats (against 153) and the majority group presidential election would lose power with 90 to 130 seats (against 249). The Republicans would go to 30 or 40 seats (against 74).
