The Communist Party invested 50 candidates in the legislative elections on June 12 and 19, including its leader and former presidential candidate Fabien Roussel (North), after the agreement reached with the rebels under the New Left Alliance. After winning 2.28% in the first round of the presidential election, Fabien Roussel, the national secretary of the French Communist Party and outgoing MP, is seeking re-election in the 20th arrondissement in the north, in Saint-Amand-les-Eaux.

Several outgoings are reinvested including the current head of the communist group in the assembly André Chassini (Boys de Dom), Elsa Fosilon (Hauts de Seine), Sebastien Gomel, Jean-Paul Lecoq, Hubert Wolffranck (Seine-Marietime) and Stéphane Peu (Seine-Saint- Denis), Alain Bruneel (North), and Pierre Dharréville (Bouches-du-Rhône).

Former Sports Minister Marie-Georges Bouvier has decided to leave her place in the 4th arrondissement of Seine-Saint-Denis, where she will replace Soumia Bourouha. “I just celebrated 73 years, and it seems necessary and logical to deliver”, explains the figure from the PCF, the 2007 presidential candidate. Same composition outgoing Jean-Paul Dufresne, a minor substitute in Allier, in favor of Yannick Monnet. Céline Malays, the regional councilor of Ile-de-France, works in the very difficult 12th arrondissement of Paris (the 7th and 15th arrondissements of Paris).

The agreement with the LFI within the New Popular Ecological and Social Union (Nupes) caused some problems, particularly in the constituency of Vénissieux (Rhône), where the French Communist Party had hoped to install communist mayor Michel Picard. But the LFI invested new rebel candidate Edir Boumertit, despite the withdrawal of journalist Taha Bouhafs, the subject of an internal investigation after accusations of sexual violence. Applicants abroad in France are not included in this list.
