FRANCE Presidential Election: 1st round

Paris, FRANCE
Sunday 23 April, 2017

The first round of the French Presidential election will take place on Sunday 23 April, 2017. The second round will be held 2 weeks later on Sunday 7 May.

Conservative presidential candidate Francois Fillon (LR), lost his early lead, as a result of the investigation into payments of public money made to his wife, Penelope, for work she may allegedly not have carried out.

Latest polls in February suggest anti-Europe & anti-euro candidate Marine Le Pen (FN) would win the April 23 first round but would then lose to independent centrist Emmanuel Macron in the May 7 run-off vote. The former economy minister has been favorite to win the presidency since the Fillon scandal broke on Jan. 25.

Outgoing Socialist president, François Hollande, decided not to seek re-election. Benoit Hamon, the farthest-left candidate of all, won the French Socialists presidential nomination in January.
