When France returns to the polls on May 7 to elect a new president, they face a choice between two outsiders. One – Marine Le Pen – offers a protectionist, nativist response to the crisis of globalization. The other – Emmanuel Macron – seeks a new, deeper engagement with the European Union, making globalization work for France.
On Sunday the French people went to vote for the first round of presidential elections and left-leaning Emmanuel Macron and far-right Marine Le Pen, were the victors. Ahead of the final face off on May 7 Catholic voters are divided regarding who should win.
