Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte voted, Marine Le Pen too: what participation in the second round of the presidential election?


This Sunday evening at 8 p.m., the current President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron will know if he should start his boxes to make room for Marine Le Pen at the Elysée or, on the contrary, if he can already work on his new government. The two presidential finalists, qualified in the first round which was held on April 10 and narrowly dismissed Jean-Luc Mélenchon who came 3rd, voted during the day.

Marine Le Pen, far-right candidate representing the National Rally, voted around 11 a.m. in Hénin-Beaumont, she who has made Nord-Pas-de-Calais her electoral stronghold since the end of the 1990s. The candidate arrived at foot at the polling station, taking the time to walk in the crowd, in the company of the RN mayor of the town since 2014, Steeve Briois, and an assistant to the latter, deputy Bruno Bilde. Marine Le Pen, who is qualifying for the second round of the presidential election for the second time and who made sure not to miss her debate between two rounds, as was the case in 2017, was to have lunch at the home of Steve Briois before leaving for Paris in the early afternoon. She must then go around 6:30 p.m. to the RN election evening.

As for Emmanuel Macron, who came well ahead in the first round, he voted in Le Touquet at midday with his wife, first lady Brigitte Macron. The couple has a second home here. “Thanks for being there once again“, addressed the Head of State to the assessors of his usual polling station. After having slipped his ballot into the ballot box, he engaged in a new long walkabout in the middle of the inhabitants and the onlookers , shaking hands under a beautiful sun.Emmanuel Macron was to return to Paris in the afternoon and must speak in front of his supporters Sunday evening, after the ballot, on the Champ de Mars, at the foot of the tower Eiffel.
