So decided the draw made by the organizers, as in 2017.16:33 – Who will be the director of the debate between the two rounds? For this new confrontation between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, it’s Didier Froehly who was chosen as the director. Aged 60, he began his career at Canal + more than 30 years ago, he is the director of “Mask Singer”, “Dance with the stars” or “Ninja Warrior”, directed the primary debates from the right but also from the left in 2017, or has worked on the football world cups of 1998, 2010 and 2018, as well as the Rugby World Cup of 2007.16:11 – How candidates and journalists will be- will they be seated for the between-two-rounds debate? On Wednesday evening, candidates and journalists will not be seated in the same way as in 2017. For this between-two-rounds debate, the large table around which the four protagonists are brought together. Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will each be installed behind a small desk, separated by 2m50. The two journalists, Gilles Bouleau and Léa Salamé, will also be seated on their own desks. 3:42 p.m. – A debate between two rounds, two visions of society , these are two opposing societal projects that will oppose each other: on the one hand, a liberalist vision of the world, which intends to be pursued in line with the past five years, to which is added checks and bonuses or even a development the energy mix with renewables; on the other, a nationalist project aimed at initiating a withdrawal of France on itself, sprinkled with measures for purchasing power and contested environmental decisions. Two diametrically opposed programs with a symbol: the retirement age (64 or 65 for Macron, 62 for Le Pen). The question of purchasing power, on which Marine Le Pen refocused her speech, will probably be preponderant in the debate. When Emmanuel Macron will talk about his checks and bonuses, his runner-up will oppose his desire to “return the money to the French”. Who will convince the French on the first subject of their concerns for this election? The question of immigration, being also preponderant in the public debate, will it supplant that of ecology on which the two contenders for the Elysée do not have the same opinions? In addition to the campaign on the ground and the meetings organized between now and the second round, this debate before the return to the polls of the French should play a decisive role in the outcome of the election. 15:03 – Two same consecutive inter-round debates, (almost) not a firstHaving a “return match” during the inter-round debate of the presidential election is not a first . But that’s not common. The scenario has indeed only presented itself once since the establishment of this now traditional meeting: in 1981, when François Mitterrand was, as in 1974, confronted with Valéry Giscard d’Estaing. If seven years earlier, the second had won at the polls, the new confrontation had turned in favor of the former defeated candidate who became a few days later the first socialist president of the Republic, under the Fifth Republic. Each time, the two adversaries were held in a pocket handkerchief, Giscard having been elected with 50.81% of the vote in 1974, against 51.76% for Mitterrand in 1981.14:11 – Where the debate between -Will two rounds take place? Organized by TF1 and France 2, the debate between the two towers will not take place either in the TF1 tower in Boulogne-Billancourt, if at France Télévisions, not far from La Une, in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. It is indeed in La Plaine-Saint-Denis, a district of Saint-Denis (Seine-Saint-Denis) near the Stade de France, that Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will face each other. Stage n°5 of the Lendit studios has been selected. It is a set of more than 1000m2.12:45 – For Emmanuel Macron, no rest before the debateA contrario of his competitor, Emmanuel Macron does not step back before the debate of the in-between- rounds. While the President of the Republic multiplies the media interventions, a trip is planned for this Tuesday and, Wednesday morning, a few hours before the confrontation, he will chair the Council of Ministers, like every Wednesday morning. 12:15 – Marine Le Pen s Is isolated to prepare the debateIt was planned for a long time in her agenda. Marine Le Pen has isolated herself since Monday April 18, 2022, in order to best prepare her debate against Emmanuel Macron. Where does she work from? Nobody mentions it in his entourage. The very mysterious and long-mentioned “greening” ultimately corresponds to isolation at his home in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, in the Yvelines. 12:00 p.m. – Before the debate between the two rounds, tight polls debate between the two rounds, the polls are tight between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen. If they are less than the day after the first round, the gap between the two candidates has nevertheless considerably reduced compared to 2017. The latest survey carried out by Opinion Way for CNews, published this Tuesday, April 19, 2022 , credits the Head of State with 56% of the vote, against 46% for the candidate of the National Rally. Will the debate confirm or reverse this trend? 11:56 – An inter-round debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le PenEmmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will once again face each other in the inter-round debate of the presidential election. As in 2017, the two candidates were carried to the second round by the voters, leading to a new confrontation before the return to the polls of the French. The outgoing President of the Republic and the candidate of the National Rally have an appointment on Wednesday April 20 from 9 p.m. to defend their project and try to convince a majority of French people to (re)bring them to power. If in 2017, the question of the result in the second round seemed heard as soon as the announcement of the final poster, the situation is not the same in 2022. First, in view of the polls which give a tight score between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, this debate between the two rounds is of decisive importance and could well tip the balance. The reserve of voices being clearly on the left in the electorate of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, everyone will get down to trying to dredge this breeding ground through proposals going in their direction. Some LFI ballots should turn into an LREM or RN vote, where, five years ago, an uncompromising “republican front” had been established. But as the little music of “Everything but Macron” begins to be heard, Marine Le Pen could well try to rush into the breach. Because it has a real angle of attack that could seduce, unlike 2017: the balance sheet of Emmanuel Macron. The Head of State no longer has the youthfulness that characterized his candidacy five years ago. It now bears the weight of a grueling five-year term, marked by many various crises. An opportunity all the more important for Marine Le Pen, the president-candidate having refused any debate before the 1st round of the presidential election. But for his part, as he is already doing, Emmanuel Macron should not fail to scratch his opponent on his positions during the Covid-19 crisis in particular, or on his discretion as to the invasion of the Russia in Ukraine. Who will present the debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen? As TF1 and France 2 lead the operations for the debate, the latter is presented by a journalist from each channel, a man and a woman. In the wake of the announcement of the date of the debate, the two channels specified that they are Gilles Bouleau, presenter of the 20 hour news from TF1, and Léa Salamé, presenter in particular of the program “Elysée 2022” on France 2 , who will moderate the debate. A time mentioned, Anne-Sophie Lapix, presenter of the 20 hours of France 2, was challenged by the Macron and Le Pen camps. What audience for the debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen? A first indicator of French interest in the second round will be the ratings of this debate: in 2017, 16.5 million French people followed the heated exchanges between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, i.e. the lowest audience of the debate. history of these debates. Between 1974 and 1988, between 25 and 30 million viewers gathered to follow the verbal contests of the finalists, compared to 16.8 in 1995, 20 in 2007 and 17.8 in 2012. A growing lack of interest which corroborates with the constant increase in ‘abstention.
