A constitutional referendum was held in France on 24 September 2000.[1] The proposals would result in the mandate of the President being reduced from seven years to five years in line with terms in office in other European countries. It was approved by 73.2% of voters, although turnout was just 30.2%.[2]

The aim of the quinquennat (five-year term) was to have the legislative election immediately succeed the presidential election (as in 2007, the presidential election took place in April–May 2007, while the legislative election took place in June), thus providing similar electoral results and reducing the risk of a cohabitation.
