On April 24, the second round of the French presidential election will take place. After a first round whose result was not without great surprise, since as in 2017, Emmanuel Macron, outgoing president and Marine Le Pen, far-right candidate, will compete for the second consecutive time with a view to a five-year term at the head of the Elysée.

Indeed, according to the site of “France Tv Info”, the results of this first round give Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen the lead. The outgoing president obtained 27.6% of the vote, according to the Ipsos-Sopra Steria estimate, while in 2017, the latter had finished the first round with 24%. The far-right candidate of the “Rassemblement National”, in the running for the third time, obtains 23% of the votes, still according to the Ipsos-Sopra Steria estimate for France Télévisions, Radio France, France 24/RFI/MCD, Public Sénat /LCP National Assembly and Le Parisien. A score up from 2017, when Marine Le Pen won 21.3% of the vote.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon obtains 22.2% of the votes of French voters. The latter achieved a better score than in 2017, when the candidate had obtained 19.58%.

More than 50% of French nationals in Algeria choose Mélenchon

Apart from the French living in metropolitan France, French nationals from all over the world were called on Sunday April 10 in the first round, in order to choose the two candidates who will compete in the second round of the presidential elections which will take place on Sunday April 24 next.

Among these French, we find those who reside in Algeria, the results of the first round of these French nationals in Algeria, gave 55.4% of votes to the left-wing candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who comes first; followed by Emmanuel Macron the candidate of “La République en Marche” comes in second place with 34.2% of the vote; in third position, French people residing in Algeria voted 2.3% for the far-right candidate Marine Le Pen; in fourth position, Valérie Pécresse received 2.2% of the vote; and finally, the far-right candidate of the “Reconquête” party, Eric Zemmour, came in fifth position with 1.6% of the vote.

The second round will be done without the candidate who obtained more than half of the votes from the French people residing in Algeria, it is also important to emphasize that the latter during his speech after the first round called on the voters who voted for him to block the way to the far-right candidate in the second round of the presidential election, therefore to opt for a vote that many consider useful by giving their vote to outgoing President Emmanuel Macron.
