THE FIRST round of France’s 2017 presidential election took place yesterday and the final two candidates have been announced: Macron and Le Pen will face off for the presidency.

The far right populist Marine Le Pen gathered 21.4% of the votes, while Emmanuel Maron, an independent pro-European centrist won 23.9% of the votes.

The second round of the election will take place on May 7th. The Financial Times is already predicting Macron’s victory with 64% of the votes.
