Extreme Right on the March in the Municipals

A strong showing by the Front National was not unexpected, but the results in certain cities are fairly dismaying:
Dans ces territoires où il est implanté, les électeurs se sont mobilisés : la participation était partout supérieure à la moyenne nationale : 63 % à Hénin-Beaumont (Pas-de-Calais), 64 % à Béziers (Hérault), 68,4 % à Fréjus (Var). L'objectif affiché de Marine Le Pen de faire élire au moins 1000 conseillers municipaux sera donc largement rempli.
The PS, as expected, has received a strong rebuke. The UMP, at first blush, seems to have done a little better than expected. The recent spate of affairs has not discredited the party of the right as much as deep disillusionment with Hollande's leadership has discredited the party of the left.
