First round of French presidential election unpacked – POLITICO

In this special issue, we unpack the results of the first round of the French presidential election, which saw Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen qualify for a runoff on April 24.

The program features highlights of an election night discussion with members of POLITICO’s French election team, broadcast live on Twitter. French political reporter Clea Calcutt explains how the result represents a transformation of the French political landscape and also analyzes the role that Russia’s war in Ukraine played in the campaign.

POLITICO’s Elisa Braün, Maïa de La Baume, Giorgio Leali and Louise Guillot report directly from the events of election night from Macron, Le Pen, far-right upstart Éric Zemmour and left winger Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

And we look ahead to the all-important round of 16: what could decide whether Macron and Le Pen won or lost? And how will voters who backed other candidates in the first ballot affect the outcome?
