Steph Deschamps / April 11, 2022
While nearly 97% of the counts, based on registered voters, were completed Monday morning, the ranking of the first round of the presidential election in France remains unchanged, with the qualification for the second round of the president-candidate Emmanuel Macron (LREM) with 27.60% of the votes cast (more than 9.5 million votes) followed, as in 2017, by Marine Le Pen (RN) (23.41% - 8.1 million votes), according to the count published by the French Ministry of the Interior.
In third place by a narrow margin, Jean-Luc Mélenchon (LFI) has so far received 21.95% of the votes cast, or 7.6 million. Eric Zemmour (Reconquest) follows with 7.05%. Under the fateful bar of 5% - below which the parties can only claim a minimal reimbursement of their campaign expenses - are Valérie Pécresse (LR) 4.79%, Yannick Jadot (EELV) 4.58%, Jean Lassalle (Résistons!) 3.16%, Fabien Roussel (PCF) 2.31% and Nicolas Dupont-Aignan (DLF) 2.07%. Anne Hidalgo (PS) 1.74%, Philippe Poutou (NPA) 0.77% and Nathalie Arthaud (LO) 0.57% close the ranking. Out of 47,311,876 registered voters, more than 11 million (25.14%) have so far been recorded as abstentions. The number of voters is divided between the votes cast (97.81% of voters), blank votes (1.52%) and invalid votes (0.67%)
