[Mis à jour le 11 avril 2022 à 15h48] So the poster will be the same. The French will be entitled to a new debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, five years after the first round that turned in favor of who became president of the republic. Remake of the same number? Not sure. Because this five-year Macron term was also five years in which Marine Le Pen was preparing for this new meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 20, 2022. Before the cameras of TF1 and France 2, these are two perceptions of the country and a course on who will oppose two of the three main public projects (with that of Jean-Luc Mélenchon) that currently coexist in France with regard to the results of the first round: on the one hand , a liberalist vision of the world that intends to continue in line with the past five years, to which are added vouchers and bonuses or even the development of an energy balance with renewable energy sources; on the other, a nationalist project aimed at initiating France’s withdrawal into itself, seasoned with purchasing power measures and challenging environmental decisions. Two diametrically opposed programs with a symbol: retirement age (65 years for Macron, 62 years for Le Pen).

But if in 2017 the question of the results of the second round seemed to be heard immediately after the announcement of the final poster, then in 2022 the situation is different. Marine Le Pen, this debate between the two rounds is crucial and could very well tip the scales. Because if she takes a slightly less offensive stance than in the first round, the National Rally candidate should no doubt be looking to attack her opponent for his record as President of the Republic, where there are five years she had. tangled up in the files he managed as economy minister. Double stake or exit: either the destabilization of Emmanuel Macron, especially with regard to the crises the country is experiencing, or a new ignorance of subjects that his rival will not fail to point out.

The question of purchasing power, on which Marine Le Pen refocused her speech, is likely to dominate the debate. When Emmanuel Macron reveals his checks and bonuses, his runner-up candidate will oppose his desire to “return the money to the French.” Who will convince the French of the first question of their concern about these elections? The issue of immigration, which also dominates public debate, will it supplant the environmental issue on which the two Elysee contenders disagree? In addition to the campaign on the ground and the meetings organized between now and the second round, this debate before the return of the French to the elections should play a decisive role in the outcome of the elections.

When will the debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen take place?

According to Le Parisien, the fight between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will take place on Wednesday, April 20, 2022. Date that has been confirmed 20 Minutes. Thus, as in all elections since 2007, the confrontation is organized four days before the return of the French to the polls, that is, during the second and last week of the campaign before the final vote.

Which channel will broadcast the debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen?

So while the announced schedule is similar to previous years, the broadcasters will do the same. Because the two media have also announced that it is TF1 and France 2 that will organize this traditional democratic meeting. Since 1988, the first two channels have hosted these debates between the two rounds. Broadcast on 1 and 2, discussions in the past have also been broadcast live on other TV channels including BFM TV, CNews, LCI, France Info and even LCP in 2017. organizers.

Who will lead the debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen?

As TF1 and France 2 lead the debate, the latter is represented by a journalist from each channel, male and female. At this stage, the names of the two hosts are not yet known. In 2017, the exchange was organized by Christophe Yakubyshyn, deputy director of TF1 in charge of the political department, and Nathalie Saint-Cric, head of the political department of France 2. Since the beginning of the presidential campaign, political programs have been organized by two competing channels, represented, in particular, by Gilles Boulot on TF1 and Anne-Sophie Lapix on France 2. A duo that could very well lead the debate on April 20.

But the games are far from over. Indeed, Le Parisien claims that Anne-Sophie Lapix could challenge Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen if they made it to the second round. The leader of the main news of the civil service was not appreciated by two camps. So who’s left on France TV? Laurent Delausse’s version could be put on the table. However, this conjecture would de facto lead to a change in TF1 where parity is mandatory. Anne-Claire Coudray could then present the front page. With the exception of Anne-Sophie Lapix, the female face of France 2 could be Caroline Roux, host of the Four Truths, Télématin’s political program. The name Lea Salame may also have been omitted. Finally, TF1 has other reserves besides the lead JT duo with Ruth Elkrif, Audrey Crespo-Mara, Darius Rochebin or even Adrian Jindre.

What is the audience for the debate between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen?

The first indicator of French interest in the second round will be the ratings of these debates: in 2017, 16.5 million French people followed the heated exchanges between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, that is, the lowest audience of debates in the history of these debates. Between 1974 and 1988, between 25 and 30 million viewers turned out to watch the finalists’ verbal contests, up from 16.8 in 1995, 20 in 2007 and 17.8 in 2012. The growing lack of interest is confirmed by the constant growth of “abstentions”.
