Argument between two candidates
Five days before the second round, the two booked this Tuesday (19) to prepare for the main televised debate on Wednesday (20) in the hope that the presidential election would be in their favor. France.
“I will prepare for the debate in my home as I prepare for all the debates. Marine Le PenHe met with voters in northwestern Normandy on Monday, before facing the final stages of his third presidential campaign.

The 2017 debate was criticized as terrifying, aggressive and unprepared for the extreme right-wing candidate. A few days later, he admitted a strategic mistake, which he reiterated in the current campaign.
Macron took advantage of the holiday on Easter Monday FranceTo give three interviews to radio and television stations, in which he focused on two issues: the consequences of voters not voting and the extreme right-wing end-of-power coming to power.
“Think of what the British citizens said a few hours before Brexit or before the vote on Trump in the United States (Donald): ‘I’m not going to attend, what’s the point?’ I can only say that they regretted it the next day, “he told the France 5 channel.
Macron tried to portray Le Pen as an extremist. In the first round, the image of radical politics was avoided by avoiding issues such as displacement or security.
After a sensible first round, he presented himself as the defender of the purchasing power of 53-year-old Le Pen, who is now trying to reassure the French about his final government. For example, she says she will command France “Mother of the Family”.
The debate, scheduled for Wednesday night, will be hosted by journalists Gilles Bouleau of the private channel TF1 and Léa Salame from the public channel France 2.
This is the first election in which Macron has refused to meet rivals in the first round.
Candidates are lagging behind
Candidates want to impress supporters of the left-wing Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who received the most votes in the first round (21.9%), and he asked his constituents not to give any vote to Le Pen, but did not vote directly for Macron.
Based on this appeal, a poll of more than 200,000 people who supported Mன்சlenchon’s candidacy showed two-thirds support in the second round, with zero, blank, or abstention. The remaining third supported a vote for the current president.

To convince them, Macron took a step back from his core plan – raising the minimum retirement age from 62 to 65. The day after the first round, he announced that he was ready to increase it to 64 years.
He is trying to get rid of the image of being the “president of the rich” and presenting himself as someone close to him for a few weeks. One of the most recent demonstrations was a photo of a shirtless man lying on a sofa after a rally in Marseille.
Most candidates who lost in the first round were asked to vote against Macron or Le Pen. The latter also includes the rejection of unions, athletes and actors
Five days before the second round, the president, backed by his father, Jean-Michel Macron, told the L’Est républicain newspaper that he had “too much affection” for his son. The French were “very ungrateful” about his first term.
If Macron is re-elected, Prime Minister Jean Costex will announce his resignation from the government a few days later, rather than wait for the legislative elections in May, because in his opinion a “new impetus” is needed.
