After the first round of the French presidential election this Sunday (10/4) – the far right qualified President Emmanuel Macron and the Marine Le Pen – they defeated candidates from various sections of the political spectrum, from communism to the traditional right. Ruled the country and appealed to their voters to vote for Macron.

The goal is to prevent Le Pen’s party from coming to power. This is what is called the “Republican Front” in France, a kind of national alliance against the far right.

Macron topped the first round with about 28% of the vote, and, according to predictions, performed better than expected in the recent election, with the incumbent president gradually falling.

Le Pen would get 23% of the vote.
