The leftist New Popular Front (NFP) grabbed the top spot in the second round of the French legislative election on Sunday in a major upset over the far right, according to projections.

The NFP was expected to have 172-215 seats, whereas French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist Ensemble alliance was in second with 150-180 MPs. Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally unexpectedly landed in third place with 120-152 seats.

French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal, a Macron ally, said he will offer his resignation after the vote.
