CBS News reported:
French polling agencies are projecting that centrist incumbent Emmanuel Macron will win France’s presidential runoff Sunday, beating far right rival Marine Le Pen in a tight race that was clouded by the Ukraine war and saw a surge in support for extremist ideas.
If the projections are borne out by official results, Macron would be the first French president in a generation to win a second term, since Jacques Chirac in 2002. But he would face a divided nation and a battle to keep his parliamentary majority in legislative elections in June.
Five years ago, Macron won a sweeping victory over Le Pen to become the youngest French president. The margin is expected to be way smaller this time: Polling agencies Opinionway, Harris and Ifop-Fiducial projected that Macron would win between 57% and 58.5% of the vote, with Le Pen getting between 41.5% and 43%.
France has traded a nationalist representative for a globalist. Le Pen’s platform prioritized French citizens.
European Rennaissance reported:
Le Pen has shifted her campaign focus to purchasing power, the number one priority for French voters, without shedding far-right policies from her election programme. Here are her main policy proposals:
- No income tax for those aged under 30
- VAT on energy at 5.5% from the current 20%. VAT at 0% for essential products such as pasta and diapers as long as inflation is one point higher than growth.
- No employer contributions on pay rises of up to 10%
- Early retirement at 60 for those who have worked 40 years. Increase low pensions
- Scrap inheritance tax for middle- and low-income families. No tax on donations of up to 100,000 euros per child or grandchild every ten years
- Only French citizens will have access to welfare benefits
- French nationals will be given preference in access to social housing and to jobs
- Stop family reunification
- Systematically deport undocumented migrants, foreigners convicted of crimes
- Withdraw residency for migrants that are out of work for more than a year
- Remove birthright citizenship
- Asylum requests to be processed outside of France
As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to “piss off” the unvaxxed by making their lives miserable. Macron also said someone who refuses the Covid vaccine is ‘not a citizen.’
“The unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so, we’re going to continue doing so, until the end. That’s the strategy,” Macron said in an interview with Le Parisien.
“I won’t send (the unvaccinated) to prison, I won’t vaccinate by force. So we need to tell them, from Jan. 15, you won’t be able to go to the restaurant anymore, you won’t be able to down one, won’t be able to have a coffee, go to the theatre, the cinema…” he added.
