French Election: Macron & Le Pen Clashes in TV Debate

International desk
France's next presidential election is just four days away. Only two surviving candidates have joined the TV debate at the moment. Right-wing leader Marine Le Pen has withdrawn from occupant President Emmanuel Macron following the controversy. However, opinion polls suggest that millions of voters have yet to make a decision.

The two competitors did not take long to get involved in the two-hour-45-minute debate. They are embroiled in controversy over the cost of living, Russia, climate change and immigration. Rising fuel costs are at the core of the controversy, which is being broadcast on two of France's largest television networks.

Emanuel Macron is believed to have won the 2016 TV debate. At the time, his opponent was seen as a bit unprepared. But this time Marine Le Pen was ready from the beginning.

Throughout the controversy, Macron has been on the offensive. Apparently, he is not in power but an opponent. He has repeatedly interfered in the statement of the opponent.

Marine Le Pen says 80% of French people believe their standard of living has dropped over the past five years. And she will be the president of civil peace and national brotherhood. "We need to prioritize the French in their own country," she said.

Emmanuel Macron says France is going through an unprecedented crisis. After Corona, war is going on in Europe. He stressed that France is overcoming these challenges and will become a stronger country. He said Sunday's vote would be "a time for a referendum on Europe, the issue of secularism and a clear choice."
