Presidential candidates close campaign in France | News


The electoral campaign in France closes this Friday ahead of the second round of the presidential elections where the current president Emmanuel Macron and the far-right Marine Le Pen will face each other.


President French accuses Le Pen’s party of depending on Russia

According to the polls carried out, the current president has an advantage that ranges from 6 to 15 points over the candidate of the Agrupación Nacional party.

However, the votes of the third party in the first round of the elections, the left-wing candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who obtained almost eight million ballots in favor, are essential to win the victory.

In this sense, Macron has shown a certain rapprochement with the most vulnerable sectors of the periphery and is shown as the alternative to the far-right candidate, against whom a sector of French society has already spoken out.

On the other hand, Le Pen proposes the establishment of measures against migration, alleged taxes on financial wealth, as well as promoting a government of national unity.

Likewise, the candidate has used attacks on the management of Macron’s first term as a tool and has even criticized the Executive’s proposal to delay retirement from 62 to 65 years, in a desperate act to win centrist votes.

However, although this may be the closest opportunity for Le Pen to access the Elysee, both the forecasts and the experts point out that the victory will be for Macron as a result of the radical shock policies that the far-right intends to establish.
