Controversial leader Marine Le Pen hopes for a presidential bid next year
France's far-right National Front topped the country's regional election vote on Sunday in a breakthrough that shakes up the country's political landscape.
The anti-immigration party received at least 29.4 per cent of the votes as the country continues its state of emergency following the Paris terror attacks.
It won six out of 13 regions in the election's first round, which 44 million people were eligible to vote for.
Former president Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservative Les Republicains party and their allies came second with around 27 per cent of the vote while President Francois Hollande’s ruling Socialists came third.
National Front leader Marine Le Pen welcomed the 'magnificent result', which will leave her in the ideal position for a presidential bid in 2017.
