The towns of Bezier and Frejus are expected to have candidates from the FN take over as mayors of their respective municipalities. Left-wing protesters took to the streets immediately after the results were announced and attempted to attack members of the Front National and the town halls of the cities.

“Demonstrators are trying to get at the Front representatives and starting fights,” a police spokesman in Frejus told The Daily Mail.

Riot police spent the night guarding the town halls of both cities as protesters continue to demonstrate against the right-wing nationalist party.

The elections are considered to be a stunning blow to current French president Francois Hollande’s left-wing governing coalition and indicates that voters in France are protesting the Socialist party platform by voting for FN, which is considered by some to be an extremist party that promotes xenophobia and intolerance.

One of the few bright spots for the Socialist party in Sunday’s election was one of its candidates becoming the first female mayor of Paris.

FN supports immigration restrictions and is critical of the European Union — which are policies that are considered on the right in Europe. The party reaped the benefits of disapproval with the current government by gaining a majority of positions in eleven cities and party now holds over a thousand city councilor positions throughout France.
