French President Francois Hollande’s Socialist Party was headed for an absolute majority in parliament with its Greens Party allies, according to initial vote projections from Sunday’s first-round ballot.

The CSA polling institute said the Socialist bloc was on track to win between 283 and 329 seats in the lower house and its Green allies were set for 12 to 18 seats, suggesting Hollande will be able to count on obtaining the 289 seats needed for an outright majority following next Sunday’s runoff vote.
