    Macron Wins French Presidential Election (53)
    0 26

    France’s centrist Democratic Movement (MoDem) leader Francois Bayrou has the strongest bid for prime minister, although 52 percent of French voters are undecided, a poll out Friday has revealed.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Harris Interactive-Atlantico survey for the RMC radio station found 15 percent would back Bayrou, a veteran of three previous presidential votes, while 10 percent would opt for former ecology minister Jean-Louis Borloo.

    French President-elect Emmanuel Macron formed a liberal alliance with Bayrou in February after he gave up a separate candidacy to endorse the fellow centrist.

    Macron presented on Thursday a diverse and gender-equal list of 428 candidates for this June’s parliamentary elections, which the poll suggested was viewed favorably by three-quarters of French respondents.
