Polls show Macron’s coalition won’t win an outright majority

French President Emmanuel Macron's coalition will not be able to win an absolute majority in the National Assembly in the second round of parliamentary elections, BFM TV reports, citing a poll by the Elabe Institute.
The Together! coalition, which includes the Renaissance parties; Macron, the centrist Democratic Movement and centre-right Horizons and “Act”, receives from 205 to 235 seats. To ensure an absolute majority, 289 mandates must be achieved. The lower house of the French Parliament has 577 seats.
Ifop, OpinionWay and Ipsos forecast, “Together!” secured 200-260 seats, and the left-wing New People's Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) by Jean-Luc Mélenchon— 149–200, according to Reuters. Elabe estimates that Nupes will receive between 170 and 190 seats.
In third place, according to Elabe, the “National Association” Marine Le Pen (from 75 to 95 mandates). Then come the “Republicans”, who, together with the “Union of Democrats and Independents” (UDI) received from 60 to 75 seats in the lower house of parliament.
The French Ministry of the Interior, after processing 60% of the ballots, reports that “Together!” gaining 35.4% of the vote, Nupes— 26.2%, “National Association”— 22.03%.
According to the agency, as of 17:00 local time (18:00 Moscow time), the turnout in the elections was 38.11%.
