1:03 am
the far less john lute melanie sean had hoped that this time he might make it to the run off. but again, he didn't quite get enough votes. francis traditional right and left wing parties continue to hemorrhage, support. the conservative, the republicans party and the valerie pay, chris saw their share of the vote collapsed a single digits. the socialist and an hidalgo had been all but wiped out their share of the vote, barely registered the, the beneficiary of those former conservative and socialists votes seems again to be micron. we ought to be asked the french brutus to support or to the answer all your friends friends for the next turn of the election in 2 weeks repugnant. i believe we have a good record and we have walked out. plan with the vision for the future. for the young, our country and for the workers often be to the left, micron has promised higher pensions and more staff in health care for the right. thousands more police officers and judges. and

1:05 am
a palace in 2 weeks time. whether or not they will of course, is another matter. indeed, she has had some packing from another far right party candidate, eric moore, who was running in this presidential race, who of course, is trailing far behind. he is often supported to rally around her. however, many other candidates who didn't make it through the 2nd round have called on their supporters to block the far right, the blog. marine the parent. that is something of a tradition here in fraud. so perhaps we'll see many of those supporters either abstaining or voting for him. i know micro that is a real challenge for marine the pen. no doubt though, she will be campaigning very hard. indeed, she ran a tight campaign by all accounts very much focusing on the cost of living that number one issue for so many voters in faults, an issue that really helped deflect the spotlight away from her and the migration anti islam agenda. and my, the really helped all say to why didn't her repeal to attract more photos that will
1:06 am
put off by some of her views and some of her immigration platform. the problem is from or in the pen. one challenge she's really going to have to face is the debate that happens between these 2 routes. a tradition aaron falls between the 2 top candidates, marina penn in 2017. when she went ahead to head with a manual micro performed very poorly. indeed, in that debate, united by her room admission, it was something of a catastrophe. she's had 5 years though to really polish her act, to try and do much better than she did back then. of course, you can imagine she spent a lot of time thinking of her strategy, thinking of what she's going to say in that debate, because that is something that a manual micro is generally a very good. all the facts and figures to hand and performs very well under pressure in those sort of settings. so be interesting to see that debate on april 20th. and then of course, in april 24th, the 2 candidates really had to head in the final round here. thank you very much,
1:07 am
natasha about covering this story from paris. and joining me now is james shields that professor french politics, university of white joins us live by skype. how important is that debate going to be? as natasha was saying, that con is put in a very good performance to last time, obviously. but how, what will she be looking to do in this debate? how be, how she be trying to portray herself? well, she is looking to be convincing. that's the 1st thing i think the parent know will continue to focus on economic and social issues and to prioritize cost of living. because there, she has a distinct advantage. it seems over macro, what she will need to return also to her signature or immigration of security of islam. if she's to attract the vote was a very because moore,
1:08 am
she will continue to project. i'm sure this so really reassuring message close to the people are close to everyday concerns. and she will seek to contrast that with microns distant aloofness of what you were looking to do in the to wrote it in the space between the 2 rooms. and, and this to be, she'll be looking to ton, the runners into an anti micro referendum. the difference is that the mood is no longer there to be a lightning rod, to deflect attention a we for the war extremist aspects of lupin's program. and to make her seem. ready more moderate by comparison, and she will have to lean more on those radical aspects if she's to address moves. electorate, micro, no doubt, will focus precisely on those extremist aspects. as a way of stressing the dean just for france, you,
1:09 am
on the way to west. if le pen were to be elected. now that's interesting because i suppose mat macklin will try to remind voters about the divisive xenophobic. you're a skeptic. anti immigrant at policies are that we own a marine. the pan has subscribed to for many years. but because of that, will she tried to focus on the, the cost of inc, living in the economy even more. and of course, the criticism there is that there is an in coherence to have policies. how is she gonna have to sort of game plan not to, to counter mack on trying to expose that incoherence. yes, you put your finger on her big problem. she needs to reach both ways. she needs to reach out to that the. ready hardline voters of what she needs to reach across actually to the left, to the socio economically susceptible voters of john middle micro starts
1:10 am
out at the clear favorite yet, but he's an embattled incumbent and look, pen can put pressure on insisting on the dangers of electing. but in the pen will not be enough for michael. you will have to both defend his record over the past 5 years and set a clear vision of where he wishes to take france in the next 5. in the past, when mainstream candidates based a loop and in the presidential run off and that was she, i can 2002 macro and 2017. other components of the electric have gather drone to cause the far right. that would be the case to the same extent. something that did not exist in 2017, but will be a factor now, is the law thing. micron inspires in a large part of the french voting public. so this time there will be an anyone but micro vote just as there will be again for some on anyone, but look,
1:11 am
pen vote. the 2nd round will depend on who is more like what it will also depend on who is this like? thank you so much. i appreciate that professor jane, she'll they're sharing your thoughts on the story with us. thank you. ah, thousands of him on con, supporters of rallied in islam of bodied day off to parliament, removed him as prime minister with a vote of no confidence opposition party secured a 174 votes. in the 342 c, parliament come, all hider has been following the protests and islam apart. the ouster prime minister ron han had made an appeal to a nation to come out and read a cross log on and died. families have turned out, as you can see,
