However, in the south of France, Marine Le Pen is hoping that her far-right party Rassemblement National (RN) party will win a regional election, boosting her chances to become president next year.
If her party were to capture one of the 13 regions, it would be a first and would boost her chances for the 2022 Presidential Election.
A recent poll by IFOP/Fiducial for Le Figaro et LCI predicted Thierry Mariani would walk away victorious with 41 percent of vote intention in the first round.
The National Rally (RN) candidate has been ahead in opinion polls since May for both rounds of voting.
If the polls prove accurate, he may go on to become the first RN region president in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.
Mr Mariani looks set to defeat the outgoing president Renaud Muselier from Les Républicains (LR).
