As France elects a new president, the candidates' economic programs are being scrutinized. Michael Wohlgemuth from the Open Europe think tank looks at what Le Pen, Macron and others have to offer.
One hundred days after the election, only one in three French citizens is happy with Emmanuel Macron as president. But that doesn't mean it's over for him, argues DW's Christoph Hasselbach.
French voters are choosing a president after a bitter campaign. The neoliberal former Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron is facing the far-right National Front's Marine Le Pen on the runoff ballot.
The two candidates have raised the stakes in France's presidential election. They both seek reform, but offer polarizing visions for France's future and its place in the world. DW examines their positions.
French President Emmanuel Macron's popularity rating has dropped 10 points in a month, according to an Ifop poll - the biggest decline for a new president since 1995. His prime minister's popularity also dipped.
