The RN, from rootedness to establishment: the Languedoc example

For almost 40 years now, the far right has been a fixture in the French political landscape. The Rassemblement National (RN) obtained - with 89 seats - a resounding success in the legislative elections of 12 and 19 June, after the qualification, for the second time in a row, of Marine Le Pen for the second round of the presidential elections of 10 and 24 April 2022.
