The 24th April took place the second round of the presidential elections in France, in which French people was expected to vote between Macron and Le Pen. Taking into account the erosion of the republican front after five years of Macron’s presidency and the rise of the extreme right, French people choose between two opposite political models for their country and its role in Europe and the world. Furthermore, it is worth considering how the Spanish-French relations will be affected. In a very complex context, dominated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the result of the 24th April is specially relevant.
