Closer to office : French far-right thwarted in regional elections (part 1)

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?

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

    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.

  • The Rise of the Far-Right : National Front surges ahead of French regional elections (part 1)

    The recent Paris terror attacks upended plenty, including the campaign for upcoming regional elections. François Hollande has enjoyed a 22% jump in the polls, but it's all eyes on far-right leader Marine Le Pen who is going from strength to strength. She now tops the National Front's candidates in the third largest region in France. What does it say about French politics, in the wake of the attacks, in the throes of anemic growth and unemployment, and in the run-up to a presidential election?

  • Landslide: Where will Macron's momentum lead France? (part 1)

    Emmanuel Macron is converting the try of last month's presidential election that blew away France's mainstream centre-left and centre-right blocs with a first round legislative result that's already redrawn the country's political landscape. 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?

  • Macron's Next Steps: French president-elect is redrawing the political landscape (part 1)

    It's been two days since Emmanuel Macron made history, becoming the first man to reach the French presidency without the help of an established party, or even having ever held elected office. But now that the confetti has settled, Macron must figure out how to rule, ideally with a majority in parliament even though he currently controls not a single seat. So how does he get there? And is his win just a hiccup in the business-as-usual of France's two main political parties?

  • Change you can believe in? Macron win signals new era in French Politics (part 1)

    After Brexit, after Donald Trump's election... make way instead for a leader who prefers globalism to nationalism. Thirty nine year old Emmanuel Macron elected president with two-thirds of ballots cast over the far-right's Marine Le Pen. Big decisions now rest on the shoulders of the youngest French leader since Napoleon: is it a turning point for Europe? How much change do the French really want? And if his policies fail, could it still be the far-right's turn in five years?
