Over to France where voters have chosen their two candidates for the Presidential election...
Centrist Emmanuel Macron has gone through to the second round, where he will face far-right leader Marine Le Pen. It’s a result that has stunned the country’s established parties... and for more on this we were joined by Stephen Carroll, journalist with France 24 in Paris, Emmanuelle Schon Quinlivan, lecturer in European Politics at University College Cork, and Helene Conway-Mouret, French Senator, Socialist Party and former junior minister of foreign affairs.
