Riots as ‘France’s Jeremy Corbyn’ claims election win: Ugly scenes as hard-left crushes Le Pen’s dreams of power but fails to win full majority – with radical ‘antisemitic’ leader, 72, risking political deadlock as he vows €150bn spending spree

Violence has erupted on the streets of France after a shock exit poll predicted that a left-wing coalition is leading the snap election battle – dashing Marine Le Pen‘s hopes of forming the country’s first hard-right government since the war.

Shocking footage shows hooded and masked protesters running through the streets, launching flares and setting France ablaze – after 30,000 riot police were deployed across France amid high political tension.

This comes after the second round of polls predicted the hard right National Rally (RN) is on track to come third – having led the race after the first round.

The New Popular Front (NFP) alliance is on course to have 172-215 MPs with Emmanuel Macron‘s centrists on 150-180 seats and the RN on 115-155, according to projections by four leading polling firms.

The party was formed last month, bringing together socialists, greens, communists and the hard-left into one camp – with the leader of the radical left, Jean-Luc Melenchon, vowing to implement several socialist policies, which critics fear will leave France ‘ungovernable’.

Melenchon, who is often compared to former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, promised to increase public spending by at least €150billion within the next five years, which will be financed by increasing taxes.
