The exit from the pandemic has a marked electoral nature in France with the elections of the end of April 2022 already in sight and the majority of political formations deciding who will compete against President Emmanuel Macron who, according to the polls, would start favorite against the rest of candidates. However, there is a character on the rise: the far-right Éric Zemmour, who even threatens Marine Le Pen.
Adding up what the polls say seven months after the French presidential elections, can we affirm that in general the country has swung socially to the right? Is France today more conservative than in previous decades?
We talked about this aspect and about the xenophobic “phenomenon” Éric Zemmour, who bursts in at the beginning of this political course disrupting the positions of the rest of the right and extreme right candidates. For this, in this En Primera Plana program, we have Florencia Ángeles, W Radio correspondent in Paris; Raphael Proust, political journalist at L’Opinion; and Marc Bassets, correspondent for El País in France.
