European Parliament election, 1984 (France)

France, European Parliament election, 1984

14–17 June 1984
81 seats to the European Parliament

In 1984 the second direct elections to the European Parliament were held in France. Four parties were able to win seats: an alliance of the centre right Union for French Democracy and the Gaullist Rally for the Republic, the Socialist Party and the French Communist Party, and the Front National. 56.7% of the French population turned out on election day.

The result was the first time the far-right Front National obtained important results- this time 10.8% and close to the declining French Communist Party.
