Under the Vichy government, which ruled France under the Occupation, the Right possessed greater influence than it had in the Republic. In the chaos of 1940, only the military command, business, Church, and administration were in a position to take power, for parliamentarians, parties, and leagues had been discredited and dispersed. The Right was influential in certain parts of the regime, and greatly influenced anti-Jewish policy. Yet the right had to share power with a diverse coalition of organizers of various stripes, centrists, and elements converted from the Left. Under Darlan in 1941–1942, the extreme right was influential.
