Macron casts vote in parliamentary runoff

STORY: Pollsters predict Macron's camp will end up with the biggest number of seats, but say it is in no way guaranteed to reach the 289 threshold required for an absolute majority.

Opinion polls also see the far right likely to score its biggest parliamentary success in decades, while a broad left-green alliance could become the largest opposition group and the conservatives find themselves as kingmakers.

Voting started at 8 a.m. (0600 GMT), with initial projections expected at 8 p.m. (1800 GMT).
