France’s nationalist party members are quickly shifting their focus from celebrating their recent win in the European elections to preparing for the upcoming French parliamentary elections. With all candidatures due by Sunday, EU Parliament member Virginie Joron, among the reelected nationalists, will also run for a seat in the French Parliament.

Early polls suggest Marine Le Pen’s party could secure a relative majority, significantly influencing the selection of the next prime minister and the country’s domestic agenda, focusing on purchasing power, security, and immigration.
