French President Emmanuel Macron Has Made Aggressive Remarks Regarding The Present Situation In Ukraine

Incumbent French President Emmanuel Macron has made aggressive remarks regarding the present situation in Ukraine, which has helped him maintain his lead in the popular surveys ahead of the next French presidential elections. His critics accuse him of straying from the “genuine debate.”

Macron’s election campaign has not been as visually appealing as those of the other contenders. Macron told French broadcaster France 3 on Sunday that “no one would understand” if he was out campaigning “when choices have to be taken for our compatriots” during a time of war.

According to predictions, Macron will face Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right National Rally, in a rematch of what happened five years ago.

The first round of voting will take place on April 10. If no candidate receives a majority of the vote in the first round, a tie-breaker vote will be place on April 24 between the top two candidates.

Macron is the leader of the French political party La République En Marche, which calls itself a liberal party. Macron personally formed the party in 2016. In the second round of voting in the 2017 presidential elections, he received 66.1 percent of the vote.

Eric Zemmour, conservative Valerie Pecresse, and left-winger Jean-Luc Melenchon, all of whom are on the right wing, are still trying to advance to the second round on April 24.

According to an AFP article, Zemmour was polling at less than 10% in certain polls, significantly below Le Pen’s about 20% and Macron’s close to 30%.

While Macron has seized complete control of the situation in Ukraine, the right and left wings of the French political spectrum are colliding.

By the end of April, we will know whether Emmanuel Macron will be re-elected as President of the French Republic for a second straight term. After the presidential elections in June, elections for the lower chamber of the French Parliament, which has 577 members, will be held.
