Axelle Lemaire wins Northern Europe seat
French Socialist candidate Axelle Lemaire won this weekend’s second round run-off with 54.6% of the vote and was elected to the Northern Europe seat. She will represent all French expatriates in ten countries in the UK, Scandinavia and the Baltic.
The French Socialists won eight of the 11 overseas French seats up for grabs. Final results in Sunday’s nationwide legislative elections gave the Socialists’ bloc 314 seats – an absolute majority in the 577-seat National Assembly.
Brentford and Isleworth Labour Party would like to congratulate Axelle and the Socialist Party on their victory.
