  1. Not amazing at all. France is a plurality voting country, so you’ll see huge exaggerations in the totals like all plurality elections.

    Some political groups will be much smaller and big ones are outrageously huge.

    My interpretation is that the big winner, “Workers on the March!” Party, is using the unity any multi-party rhetoric but since the elections are not pure proportional representation, but they are not specifically calling for pure proportional representation.

    Many French-speaking countries that are former colonies in Africa have similar problems which is bad news for environmentalists and conservationalists.

  2. @james Ogle: Still, just considering their percentage of the votes, the Socialists and Communists have dropped a lot.
