Macron's party set for absolute majority in French legislative vote, poll shows

Emmanuel Macron's Republic on the Move party is on track to win a clear majority in France's legislative elections later in the month, Reuters reported, citing an opinion poll.

The French president's party is expected to win 29% of votes in the first round of parliamentary elections June 11, the OpinionWay/ORPI poll for Les Echos newspaper and Radio Classique reportedly showed June 1.

The party is projected to secure between 335 and 355 seats of the 535 mainland French seats in the lower house of parliament, compared to 289 seats needed for an absolute majority in the National Assembly, which has 577 seats in total.

Conservative Republicans are expected to get 20% of votes, followed by the far-right National Front party at 18%, the far-left France Unbowed party at 13% and the Socialist Party at 9%, according to the report.

Other recent polls have also showed that Macron's party was set to take the largest share of the votes in the first round of the parliamentary elections.
