Although the National Front can count on a loyal base, it has only two seats in the current Lower House of Parliament, and a poll last week predicted the party would win only around 15 to 25 seats in next month's elections. Defeated rival Le Pen remains defiant. The poll, for M6 television, also found Le Pen's supporters to be more convinced by their candidate's policies and qualities: 56% of Le Pen voters found she spoke to their concerns, while only 21% of Macron voters said the same of him.

Abe said Japan is concerned that the test will advance Pyongyang's intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) technologies, saying the G-7 countries should work together to put strong pressure on the North.
