The second round of election to the National Assembly, the  lower house French Parliament, takes place in France today. As of 12:00, the turnout in France was at the level of 17.75%. This was stated by the press service of the Ministry of Interior of France, reports Le Figaro.

"Elections: the turnout in the second round of parliamentary elections is 17.75% as of 12:00, while at the same time on June 11 the voting level was 19.24%," the report said.

Thus, this indicator is much lower in comparison with the first round of elections.

"If the trend continues, the turnout may fall to a historic level," the report said. It is also reported that the lowest rate of voter turnout is registered in the capital of France, Paris - as of noon - 10.37%.

We recall, the party of French President Emmanuel Macron "Forward, the Republic!" and its allies in the first round of parliamentary elections, which took place a week ago, took the lead and received 32% of the vote. On the second place is the right party "Republicans" (21%). It is followed by the alliance of "Unconquered France" with the Communists (13.74%). The fourth place was taken by the ultra-right "National Front" (13.2%). French socialists and their allies received only 9.5%, the report said.

The first round of elections to the National Assembly was held in France a week ago at a record low turnout of 48.4%.
