MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. The results of the first round of regional elections in France have showed the disappointment of many people in European integration, Russian Federation Council International Affairs Committee chairman Konstantin Kosachev said on Monday.
The fact that the National Front is leading at regional elections is an "overwhelming outcome for France of long-lasting debates about attitude toward their own sovereignty, European integration and the surrounding world (including Russia, by the way)," Kosachev wrote on his Facebook page. "The result showed obvious disappointment of many French people in the previous results of France’s reckless entry into some kind of ‘Europe’ which is not in fact like this," he added.
Kosachev noted that the success of the National Front cannot yet be described as the victory since the second round of regional elections is ahead. "It is not known whether France will change. For now, it is more like a pendulum than a strategic development vector," he added.
The National Front led by Marine Le Pen enjoyed a success in the first round of regional powers in France leading in seven out of 13 regions. The National Front currently holds 29.8% of votes across the country while Nicolas Sarkozy’s Les Republicains received 26.2% of votes, and the ruling Socialist Party — only 23.2%.
