Official campaign for the presidential election begins

Sylvie Claire / March 28, 2022

After a weekend of mobilization in all camps, Monday gives way to the official campaign, which leaves the candidates - including the favorite Emmanuel Macron - two weeks to raise awareness of the French so far rather in the background.
  
With thirteen days to go before the first round on April 10, and the day after rallies full of fervor on the right and the left, nothing has yet been decided. But polls of voting intentions, which are only a snapshot with margins of error, follow one another and place the incumbent president far ahead of the far-right candidate Marine Le Pen, who is trailed by the leader of the radical left Jean-Luc Mélenchon.
 
The ex-polemicist Eric Zemmour and the right-wing candidate Valérie Pécresse are fighting for fourth and fifth place. Nearly four out of ten voters sure to go and vote have not yet made their choice and are hesitating, Adélaïde Zulfikarpasic, director of BVA Opinion, told AFP on Friday. And the abstention hovers ostensibly on this atypical presidential election. The health crisis linked to Covid-19 and the war on the European continent, in Ukraine, have crushed a campaign that has been slow to really take off, despite the fact that the candidates are doing everything possible.
 
The official campaign ends on April 9 at midnight, the day before the election. A second round is scheduled for April 24.
