France awaits its great electoral appointment divided: this is how Macron’s voter thinks

France chooses its future head of state this Sunday between the liberal Emmanuel Macron and the far-right Marine Le Pen and between these two options are those who do not feel represented by either and predict an increase in the citizen division as soon as the results are known. “France has been fractured for a long time and unfortunately it will continue like this. We have a revolutionary and revengeful spirit and unfortunately I don’t think it will change. It is in our DNA,” Martine, 72, explained to Efe from the open-air market in Saxe- Breteuil, in the VII district of Paris, where the current president obtained his highest percentage of the vote in the entire capital, 48.47%, in the first round. “We are lucky to have a very good president. He has done what he could considering the situation that has affected him, that is, the covid and the ‘yellow vests’. I don’t think he will have a problem being re-elected. The problem will come later, it will be very difficult for him to govern and make the reforms he wants,” Martine confessed. In this wealthy neighborhood of Paris, it is not difficult to find Macron voters. “For me he is the only one who can be president. The others do not measure up, they are not up to the task,” said Jean-Paul, 81, who was not surprised that Le Pen reached the second round with 23.15% of the votes, compared to 27.85% for Macron: “There are many difficulties and people think that Le Pen is going to solve them all. I think it’s just an illusion,” said this former worker in the sector financial. But what other candidates are proposing, according to Claude, a 75-year-old former administrative and financial director who also voted for Macron on April 10, “is not more realistic” than what the current president says.
