French Presidential Election
21 | April | 2017

In less than a week, the French are going to the ballot box for the first round of the presidential elections. The pools point to Emmanuel Macron (En Marche!) and Marine Le Pen (FN) as the most likely candidates to reach the second round. The April 23rd elections reflect the rising dissatisfaction the national politics and bring up concerns about the amount of people who are thinking of abstaining.
