Breaking News: Marine Le Pen - Recount in Progress?

According to a report in Le Monde, there is some dispute as to the result in the constituency of Hénin-Beaumont being contested today by Marine Le Pen. It appears that the contest has seen the candidates polling neck and neck. Whereas the Socialist Philippe Kemel thinks that he has won, the Le Monde correspondent Abel Mestre claims that Marine Le Pen has requested a recount, owing to there being a margin of only 118 votes between the two candidates.The shares of the vote stand at 50.11% and 49.89%. 

Elsewhere, the Front National did win seats, as can be seen here
