Front National seems to have won 30.6 percent of the votes in Sunday's regional elections, according to exit polls conducted by IFOP Fiducial.
The other right-wing parties seem to have won 27 percent of the votes, while the Socialist Party seems to have won 22.7 percent.
In northern France, Front National looks to get 43 percent of the votes.
In the southeast, where Le Pen's 25 years old niece Marion Maréchal-Le Pen runs for election, the party took 41.7 percent of the votes.
- After the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, we have seen a clear increase in support for Front National, says analyst Jerome Forques in IFOP.
The regional elections take place in two rounds, and the second round is on December 13th. If the exit polls show the same result next week, it appears that National Front for the first time takes control of one or several French regions.
