  • What Might Macron As New French President Mean For Africa?

    FRANCE, 2017/07/09 On 7 May 2017, the French people spoke and elected Emmanuel Macron as their next President of the Republic. Gathering 66.06% of the votes against 33.94% for his opponent Marine Le Pen from the far-right Front National, this second round concludes an unprecedented presidential race in several respects. Beyond the victory of a newcomer in French politics, these elections marked a harsh side-lining of the two major parties – the Parti Socialiste and Les Républicains – inclunding the significant rise of populist movements.
