Low turnout as France goes to the polls to elect new president


Voting is under way in the French presidential election which has been characterised by demagoguery and the lack of a political agenda. Dr Françoise Boucek, a Visiting Research Fellow at Queen Mary stated: "It’s interesting to see the repositioning that is required right after the first round, in a matter of hours. The other parties will have to mobilise their leadership and decide what to do and what to advise their voters.”
