Tale of Two Frances: The bitter divide facing the next French president (part 2)

Description

This week the France 24 Debate heads to Bonnelle, a village 45km from Paris that sits astride the two sides for France which seem to be going head to head in the 2017 Presidential Election. On one side, the France of the cities and urban areas who are fully integrated in the globalized economy. On the other the rural France that feels left behind and isolated. Sunday’s election between Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron will determine which of these Frances makes their voice heard.

    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.
