Only a few days left to decide. On April 24, the French will be called to the polls to choose the next President of the Republic and the two finalists, namely Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen, will spread the media to convince those who abstain. But the two candidates are preparing with great concentration the debate between the two rounds that will take place on Wednesday April 20th on TF1 and France 2 with Gilles Bouleau and Léa Salamé. But a few days ago, a dispute broke out because Anne-Sophie Lapix would have been fired by the teams of the two candidates to liven up the debate. The reason: his supposed bias in his interviews. Jordan Bardella, one of Marine Le Pen’s lieutenants, confirmed the information and refused to allow the presenter of France 2 at 8 p.m. to present the debate, which is being watched by more than 15 million French people.
Emmanuel Macron speaks about the debate
This Monday, April 18, Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine presented a new edition of It depends on you on France 5 and the host received Emmanuel Macron a few days before the second round. During the show, the host asked him about the host duo regarding the April 20 debate. “Did you help choose reporters for the debate?”asked the journalist. “The two candidates were consulted, but for my part I did not challenge any journalist or director”began the head of state.
“I stayed in my position”
A few seconds later, Emmanuel Macron added: “The debate works if there isn’t a red list that is too long. I have not challenged any of your colleagues. I never sorted journalists during my five-year tenure.”. Then the outgoing President spoke to Patrick Cohen. “I understand you’re on the red list, it’s going to be a strange exercise. I stayed in a position that we should have. The two main channels, one from the private sector, one from the public sector, offer and it’s the same for directors.”he concluded, turning discreetly to Marine Le Pen.
