France Votes, the World Watches
French voters go to the polls on April 23 in the first round of a presidential election that may upend European politics. Populist nationalist Marine Le Pen hopes to lead her Front National to victory, and faces a scattered field in which the traditional parties are weak and outsiders are on the rise. In this edition of FPRI Radio, host Ronald Granieri is joined in conversation with European Foreign and Security policy analyst Hajnalka Vincze. Their discussion focuses on the upcoming Presidential election and its significance for France’s place in Europe and the world.
