Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen in the runoff

DrFrench President Emmanuel Macron Right-wing populist Marine Le Pen qualified for Sunday’s crucial run-off. Left-leaning Union Popular candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon missed the second round with a score of 20.1 percent, according to the latest forecast by French Radio 2 at 9 p.m.

Macron got induction by France 2 with 28.4 percent of the vote. Le Pen had 23.3 percent. The two candidates face a run-off in two weeks, on April 24.

Le Pen appealed to all voters to join her on Sunday evening. “It is not an option, it is a civilized decision,” said the candidate of the National Rally in Paris. It would ensure national independence and the ability for ordinary French to make their own decisions. “I will set France straight in five years,” Le Pen vowed.

The candidate of the right-wing Républicains party, Valerie Pecresse, who received only 4.7 percent of the vote according to initial projections, called for the election of Emmanuel Macron on Sunday evening. If his run-off rival, Le Pen, comes to power, Pécresse said in Paris, there is a risk of “disastrous consequences for the country and future generations”. After that, France will be erased from the European and international stage. Socialist candidate Anne Hidalgo, with 1.8 percent voting in favour, called on her supporters to vote for Macron on April 24.

Le Pen can also hope to reserve voters among Mélenchon supporters. The left-leaning people’s platform had already announced that it would not recommend voting for water flow we will give. Already in 2017, voter emigration in favor of Le Pen was noted among his supporters.
