the ellipse don't seem to all the french who chose to have slain or the vote on the extreme of either because it angry faced with persistent inequality, a damaged planet with every day. insecurity. the difficulty to make a decent living despite weakened, hard did of evil. i want to convince him in the coming days. his opponent, in the 2nd round of voting will again be marine le, pen leader of the national rally. it's manifesto includes a promise to make it illegal for muslim women to wear, had scarves in public places. they were covered. the bonuses you, your vote depends all over the french territory on the legitimate preponderance of the french culture and language, the customs of our regions, and the french way of life on republican laws and values. if we can le pen might pick up votes from supporters of air exam or another extreme right candidates. the former tv pond. it has asked his supporters to backer in the 2nd round. the far
less john luke melon, shawn had hoped that this time he might make it to the run off. but again, he didn't quite get enough votes. frances 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 socialists on the ann hidalgo had been all but wiped out their share of the vote, barely registered. the beneficiary of those former conservative and socialists votes seems again to be micron. we ought to be asked the. ringback fringes to support the, to the us, wrong european france for the next turn of the election in 2 weeks. i believe we have a good record and we have a wacked up plan with the vision to the future of the young our country and for the workers often be to the left macro has promised higher pensions and more staff in health care for the right thousands more police officers and judges, and a rise in the retirement age from 62 to 65. and here's what some parish voters had
been saying the morning after the election day. was it done as 2 days more cause you became a young man? it was a relief for me to see that a manion luck chrome was making it to the 2nd round because he's the only candidate who's able to do something in our country. and i was extremely concerned by the rise of the far right and far left. so 5 more years of my chron. yes. be that extended to assume on the far right in the 2nd round is never good news, and we must always keep in mind that we have to fight it. never let go. the far right will not give us our purchasing power back the far right is not the one that will help us all live together. the far right is not the one that will bring the fringe people together. it is a learn that we must absolutely fight according to joseph basil at all, do him my feeling is that the 1st round is over. we waiting impatiently for the 2nd one. and i hope that the campaign between the 2 rounds will be a bit more constructive and intelligent than the one before. there was no campaign during this 1st round because of the pandemic and the war in ukraine. there was no
constructive debate on anything whatsoever. georgia paco, sky alive now to bernard smith and paris bernard, so the lear, real race now begins. what exactly can we expect in the coming weeks? i think when we can expect 2 weeks of intensive campaigning, you'll see that particularly from emanuel micron, only that one rally or before the election on sunday, he's going to be criss crossing. the country starts in northern france to day, but if you're visiting towns and cities across the country, a marine la pan, who was already campaigning ard before sunday. she'll be campaigning. hard in the next to leeches already said this is going to be her last election campaign. her last attempt to try and win the presidency of the newspapers this morning in paris, all of course of a similar theme liberation left leading liberation says this time it's really scary . the right leaning, the figure makram the pen, a new jewel, and
a jewel again. and for lays echo and return match advantage micron. says the parisians, what you had on sunday was we know there were a lot of undecided voters in the run up to the election. and they made their decision. it seems right on the day. and what happened was they are the voted the micron, or they went with extreme right, or the extreme left. for example, malin shannon, the extreme left seems to have benefited from supporters on the last 2 wanted at least a left wing candidate in a final or run off. they thought mansion was the best bet. now micron go drew more support from the center right and center left again increasing his share of the vote. but while there's no traditional left and right center part is really with an influence. now, what's happened is both extremes increase their share of support as well. 33 percent share of the of some of the vote for the far right candidates,
combined 50 percent share of the vote for the far left combined melon shown and to trots guest presidential candidates. so while micron has succeeded in winning more of those on the center left and right, big streams of also increase their share of vote micron this time wild will be trying to persuade them to come and vote for him. marine la pan. of course, she wants those voters to go for her as well. the odds, it still are with micron, but an upset cannot be ruled out. thank you for that. bennett smith there for us in paris hall additions a meeting to choose pakistan's new prime minister there will be deciding on a successor to him or on con, he lost a no confidence vote. oh, security is high on to tens of thousands of people across the country on said collins called to protest against his removal from office. he thanked his support

you come to that? i think this, the most important point is lik, a missing in this link is no one else's sponsor for the downfall of him. drunken, put him round on him, so he brought it on himself. i mean, no, you know, if he heard built up or of strong good cabinet, which was which included competent people responsible to deliver on the economic front. that's the key most important objective and he totally missed that. and this, in spite of the fact that he was the 1st prime minister, who got the kind of support from all stakeholders, including the military, unprecedented support of the judiciary, the media. he was the darling of the media when he came in power to all the media stakeholders were all behind him. and everyone also failed and to her to some sense that i think her give up sibling leadership the opportunity to perform rather than being disturbed, unnecessarily. and he got that support and he failed miserably. so he brought it on
