Unemployment in France

France - Unemployment

French voters will decide on 7 May between two fundamentally different economic and political models after the centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right Marine Le Pen each clinched a spot to the second round in the highly-contested presidential elections. The outcome of the 23 April vote was greeted favorably by European financial markets, which had been beset by political uncertainty in the run-up to the vote. While there is a strong consensus among pollsters and pundits that Emmanuel Macron should win the 7 May runoff vote, developments that could alter voting or the outcome in the upcoming weeks are not being ruled out. The next president will inherit an economy that is failing to gain traction according to the latest GDP release, despite very positive survey-based data since the end of last year.
