POLITICS – New stage and new challenges for this second round of legislative elections. This Sunday, June 19, voters are called to the polls to decide between the finalists of the ballot and confirm (or not) the trends observed in the latest polls.

While the first round offered sham results that only half satisfied the main political forces involved in the battle, this second round promises to be decisive and its outcome uncertain. Will Macronie have an absolute or relative majority? Will Jean-Luc Mélenchon succeed in his bet to impose cohabitation? Will the National Rally come into force at the Palais Bourbon? So many unknowns that will dissipate this Sunday evening.

Beyond these major national trends, several local situations deserve attention. And particularly those where ministers are engaged. Because in case of defeat, it is the resignation for the concerned. In this game, it is certainly Amélie de Montchalin and Clément Beaune who have the most to lose. Both left behind in the first round, the Minister for Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion as well as her colleague for European Affairs are not at all certain to win this Sunday.

On the contrary. The dynamic between two rounds does not seem to have worked in their favor. On Friday, an Ifop poll carried out for Sud Radio gave Amélie de Montchalin the loser against her challenger, the socialist Jérôme Guedj. Other interesting situations are those where the National Rally is able to plant symbolic flags. This is particularly the case in the 11th constituency of Gironde with Edwige Diaz or on the side of Vitrolles, where the Lepenist party could make a comeback with Franck Allisio.

Interesting situations in the (few) triangles being played this Sunday. Among them, the second district of Nièvre. On the lands of François Mitterrand, it is not excluded that the situation plays in favor of the candidate RN Julien Guibert, who came first in the first round.

This Sunday could also seal the failure of several media outlets. This is particularly the case for the deputy LR Éric Ciotti, who could suffer from the transfer of votes from the NUPES to his macronist challenger, Graig Monetti. Le HuffPost was there during the week to survey this match. In the North, it is Fabien Roussel who could lose his seat in favor of his opponent RN, Guillaume Florquin, while in Paris Pierre-Yves Bournazel could find himself dislodged by the former columnist Aymeric Caron, who arrived well ahead on Sunday. last. Another duel that caught the attention of the HuffPost.

Finally, the atmosphere also promises to be tense on the side of Forcalquier, where the historic walker Christophe Castaner is threatened by his opponent from the NUPES. A defeat that would be hard to swallow for anyone who plans to chair (again) the Macronist group in the National Assembly.
