Closer to office : French far-right thwarted in regional elections (part 2)

Description

Both Sarkozy's center-right and Valls's socialists praised a higher turnout on Sunday that thwarted the National Front's hopes of securing any region after a successful first electoral round. 16 months ahead of the presidentials, however, support for the National Front continues to grow, along with acceptance of its anti-immigration, eurosceptic and anti-abortion programme. How are they already influencing policy? Why do politics seem so dysfunctional inside the Euro-area's second economy?

The Socialists are in tatters and the conservative Républicains are split. Is Macron's momentum also that of Europe's now? What does it mean for Brexit, and for the future of the EU?
