Turnout in French parliamentary vote down sharply on 2012: Ministry

AFP , Sunday 11 Jun 2017

Turnout after nine hours of voting in France's parliamentary elections on Sunday was 40.75 percent, down around eight points from the same stage in the 2012 vote, the interior ministry said.

If the trend is confirmed it will be the lowest turnout for any first round of a French parliamentary poll in nearly six decades.
