Emmanuel Macron, Marine Le Pen through to runoff


Centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen are set to face each other in a May 7 runoff for the French presidency after coming first and second in the first round of voting overnight.

In a race that was too close to call up to the last minute, Mr Macron, a pro-European Union ex-banker and economy minister who founded his own party only a year ago, won the first round with roughly 24 per cent of the vote.

Ms Le Pen, leader of the anti-immigration and anti-EU National Front, came in second with 22 per cent.

Conservative candidate Francois Fillon and far-left contender Jean-Luc Melenchon both came up with roughly 20 per cent, meaning they were eliminated from the presidential race.

The result means that France will see a face-off between politicians with radically contrasting economic visions for a country whose economy lags behind that of its neighbours and where a quarter of young people are unemployed.


as we predicted months ago..macron is the man..where the losers votes go in the second run off is the key..

  1. France: 25% of young people are unemployed (from article above)

    United States: 9.9%

    Australia: 13.3%

    Spain: 41.5%

    Belgium: 19.1% (Their record low is 14% in 1991 and high is 26.5% in 2014)

    A graph with all EU nations:

  2. Even if it sounds a bit strange: If you are against the EU, you must vote for Macron! 🙂
    He is the guaranty that nothing will change there and they can drive it against the wall. With Macron France and the EU will be in the dirt in a year.

  3. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  4. i don’t understand the hand-wringing over a possible le pen win. she got less than 25% of the vote and it’s unlikely she will add significantly to that in the runoff. what am i missing?

    • The other two candidates were eliminated in the first round and combined had 20% of the vote. There were four candidates in the first round, and now only two in the second round. Those voters, if they vote, can only vote for the two remaining candidates. Le Pen lost by 2% to Macron compared with the 20% new potential voters going either Le Pen or Macron. If I understand the face value of France’s voting system; meaning, if there are no twists the voting that the article does not make explicit.

    • Trump spooked them but trumps numbers were always far better than Le pens

  5. the Master:

    he picked him for the Rothschilds:

    “Professional career
    Macron worked as an Inspector of Finances in the French Ministry of Economy between 2004 and 2008. In 2007, he served as deputy rapporteur for the Commission to improve French economic growth headed by Jacques Attali.[8] Macron paid €50,000 to buy himself out of his government contract in 2008,[11] and left to work as an investment banker at a highly-paid position at Rothschild & Cie Banque.[12]”

    Who is Jacque Attali? a jew, bilderberg member, one of the greatest theoretists / gurus of NWO:


    Attali’s “mein Kampf” ;):

    “hyperdemocracy” = the Capital finally absolutelly free
    “hyperdemocracy” = One World Government of the financial elite


    great analysis: (google traductor suggested)

    the same ideas of the other jew guru, the father of “liquid modernity”, Zygmunt Bauman = the ultimate solution of world’s problems = One World Government…

    …creating situations for the designed to be implemented solutions…engineering of consent…

  6. damn is THEY- times article
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/25/world/europe/france-melenchon-macron-le-pen.html?_r=0 Rads-punks-Dope2017 eh? @MLP_officiel

    • Mr. Mélenchon’s 19.6 percent of the vote Sunday is now a rich booty — triple the score of the mainstream Socialist Party, whose collapse has elevated Mr. Mélenchon to be de facto leader of the French left. He even won in big cities like Marseille and Lille.

      But it is not clear where that vote will now go, not least because far-left populism and far-right populism may have more in common than the seemingly vast gulf between them on the political spectrum would suggest.

      Mr. Mélenchon, 65, a former Trotskyite, ran a campaign denouncing banks, globalization and the European Union — just like Ms. Le Pen.

      A grizzled orator with a penchant for Latin American dictators, he has the same forgiving attitude she does toward the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin.

    “it was Mr Minc, a fellow Inspecteur des Finances, who had helped the young Mr Macron secure his interview at Rothschild.”

    so, the other Macron’s Godfather:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alain_Minc…a jew. obviously.

    • Alain Minc was born on April 15, 1949 in Paris[2][3] to a family of Jewish immigrants from Poland.[4] His father, Joseph Minkowski, was a dentist and a member of the Communist Party.[5]
