French legislative election, 1902

Legislative elections were held in France on 27 April and 11 May 1902.

This was a success for the Left Block which was composed by alliance between Socialists, Radicals, and the left-wing of the old Opportunist Republicans which merged after the Affaire Dreyfus crisis, to save the parlementary form of the republic.
