To vote in the parliamentary elections, for what?

Legislative elections, which always take place immediately after the presidential elections, are essential for citizens. And rightly so, it is the majority-elected deputies who will vote on the laws for the next five years. They also determine the new head of state because it allows him or her not to obtain a majority in the meeting room and thus carry out his policies. If your candidate is elected this Sunday, April 24, it’s time to give him more weight or, on the contrary, if you’re not happy with the presidential result, you can still vote for your political party.
