The hangover of politics speaks itself and the proverb fits in politic also ‘Everything is fair in love and war’. The tug of war between two political parties is a common scenario we see in every country because every single party tries to get the majority and win the election by hook and by crook.
The French Presidential election 2017 is special because the sitting French president didn’t show any interest for the second term. This is a unique episode in the history of France, where the leader of ruling party always struggles to become the president of the country even for the second time.
The reason for not running for the second term is decreasing popularity of the president. The data and the document show low approval.
So, you will not see Francois Hollande’s face in the race of presidential election.
The list of candidates for French Election 2017 includes Emmanue Macron of En Marche, Marine Le Pen of National Front, François Fillon of The Republicans, Jean-Luc Mélenchon of La France insoumise, Benoît Hamon of Socialist Party, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan of Debout la France, Jean Lassalle of Résistons, Philippe Poutou of New Anticapitalist Party, François Asselineau of Popular Republican Union, Nathalie Arthaud of Lutte Ouvrière and Jacques Cheminade of Solidarity and Progress.
French Elections are scheduled to be held in two rounds; First round of election was held on 23rd April 2017 but unfortunately, no political party got a clear majority to form the government in french parliament and second round is supposed on 7th May 2017.
There were eleven candidates of eleven political parties but two major parties; En Marche and the National Front got the maximum share of votes resulting in making a way for these two parties to run for the presidential election on 7 May 2017.
So, now all eyes are keen to see the sunlight of 7th May, as the day will decide the future of France.
