We are a group of students based in London who will do their best to provide the latest news on the coming French Presidential elections coming on the 23rd of April and the second round on the 7th of May 2017.
Our ultimate goal is to bring a complete coverage of this election. Main news outlets around the UK do not put this election as a major event for the moment. But the race for the Elysée is on and many key events have already happened.
