French Elections: Implications for Europe

Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will once again contest the final round of the French presidential elections as they did in 2017 when Macron won easily by 66% to 33%.

But this time could be different after the first round of voting showed the incumbent president ahead of her by some 5 points – and projections pointing to a very tight outcome on April 24.
What does this mean for France – and for Europe’s future?
