Senatorial elections were held on 27 September 2020 to pick 172 of the 348 seats in the Senate of the French Fifth Republic. The elections were a modest victory for the centre-right Républicains. The environmentalist EELV party entered the upper chamber, while President Macron's centrist LREM maintained their position, despite losses in municipal elections earlier in the year. The far-right NR kept their one seat, and the Corsican nationalists gained their first seat as well.[1]
