2022 presidential election in France


May 21, 2022

The first round of the 2022 presidential election in France was held on April 10th. Between the first two places was the second round on April 24, 2022. The incumbent president, Emmanuel Macron (a candidate for En Marche), whose first term runs until May 13, 2022, was again opposed in the second round by Marine Le Pen, the leader of the National Concentration, who was defeated in 2022 after 2017. Since the French presidential election in 2002, no president has been re-elected until 2022. Valérie Pécresse, the Republican candidate, was able to get less than 5% of the vote in the first round, the worst result in the party’s history. Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, received 1.75%, the worst result for the Socialist Party in its existence. Jean-Luc Mélenchon, a candidate from the far left Disobedient France, finished third in the first round, with 21.95% of the vote, just 1.2% behind Le Pen, in the younger age groups (18-34) he was the most popular candidate. The election took place just before the 2022 legislative elections, where 577 members of the lower house of the French parliament, the National Assembly, will be elected. Both Ipsos and Sopra Steria announced Macron as the winner, with 58.2% of the vote. Le Pen accepted his defeat minutes after announcing the first partial results.
