The seven candidates vying for the French right's presidential nomination squared off again in their second televised debate last night (3 November). But European issues were largely absent from the proceedings. EURACTIV France reports.
The French regional election campaigns were fought largely on national issues, which has given the mainstream parties a foretaste of the battle to come in the presidential 2017 elections. EURACTIV France reports.
The extreme right party collected 6.8 million votes in Sunday's regional elections (13 December). With 27.39% of all votes cast, it beat its performance in the 2014 European elections by 2%. EURACTIV France reports.
