French President Francois Hollande called on all French people who consider themselves “supporters of the Republican values” to vote for former Minister of economy of centrist Emmanuel Macron and blocking the road, the far-right marine Le Pen. This writes the RFI.
“This should not be the subject of discussion for all those committed to the ideas of the Republic. You need to vote for the Emmanuel Macron and assume that this will prevent the extreme right come to power,” – said the acting President.
Hollande added that the failure and refusal to vote for the Macron go into the hands of marine Le Pen, as its result, in the second round can be higher in percentage terms.
“The lower the result, the less her claims in the future,” – said the President of France.
