The first round of the 2022 French presidential election will be held between 8 and 23 April 2022. The second round will be held two weeks after the second. The runoff will be held between the top two candidates.
Two leading candidates gather up the most possibilities to win the 2022 French election. These are the current French president, Emmanuel Macron and the 2017 runner up Marine Le Pen.
It is a bit early to predict a sure winner but Emmanuel Macron has the lead so far in the election polls. Although, the difference between him and Le Pen is small enough for the underdog to have serious chances to win this time.
The last French presidential election was held in 2017. More specifically, the first round was on the 23rd of April and the second round was on the 7th of May with Emmanuel Macron to winning with 66.1%.
The most popular markets regarding the upcoming french elections are three. The presidential election winner, Macron’s first-round vote share (over/under 25%) and the possibility of the elections to happen before the 8th of April 2022.
