France goes to the polls tomorrow for the third time in this intense electoral spring and in the absence of a final vote, next week, to finish defining the future of the country for the next five years. After having re-elected Emmanuel Macron as president just two months ago, the French now have to designate the composition of the National Assembly, elections that do not generate enthusiasm and in which there is usually a high abstention rate.
As was the case in the presidential elections in April, tomorrow’s appointment is surrounded by uncertainty, almost more so than then because Macron’s coalition could lose the parliamentary majority, according to the polls. This would complicate governance and leave the country, already highly fractured and with growing conflict, in a situation of political instability that has not been seen in decades.
