The two-round majority system is a voting method that allows the election of a candidate (in a constituency or for the whole of a state) after two rounds of voting. Voters are therefore called upon to vote a first time for one or other of the candidates.
The Bureau is made up of 22 members — the President of theNational Assembly, 6 vice-presidents, 3 quaestors and 12 secretaries—. The members of the Bureau are appointed at the beginning of the legislature, just after the election of the President, then renewed each year, in October, at the opening session of the ordinary session.
The election of President of the National Assembly During his first session, theAssembly newly elected is chaired by its oldest member and elects its new President. This election, acquired for the entire duration of the legislature, takes place by secret ballot in the gallery.
The duration of the mandate of the deputies is 5 years (unless the National Assembly is dissolved). The next legislative elections take place in June 2022.
Municipal councilors are elected (for a 6-year term) by direct universal suffrage by French and European voters registered on the electoral lists. The voting method combines the rules of majority voting in 2 rounds and those of proportional voting.
Each party obtains a share of the seats filled by proportional representation corresponding to its share of the votes, to which are added the 90 seats obtained in the constituencies by relative majority, giving the ballot a majority tendency. The allocation of seats is done according to the simple quotient system.
