French Revolution: Macron to face Le Pen in election run-off
Emmanuel Macron will run against Marine Le Pen to become France's next president. Macron, running as an independent centrist, came ahead of the far-right Le Pen with 23.9% of the vote versus 21.4% for Le Pen. Is this evidence Macron will win, or will the election end with a tight finish? Michael Considine spoke to James Shields, Professor of French Politics at Aston University.
