“Sunday in politics”: one week before the first round of the presidential election, French people disinterested in politics?

One week before the first round of the presidential election, Francis Letellier returns to the divide between the population and its political leaders, Sunday April 3. He is accompanied by the economist Julia Cagejournalists Jean-Laurent Cassely and Anna Rosencher and Jérémie Peltier, director of studies at the Foundation Jean Jaurès.

In the show “Sunday in policy”, Francis Letellier returns with his guests, Sunday, April 3, on the feeling of the French vis-à-vis their political leaders. The journalist Jean-Laurent Cassely begins by taking stock of the life of the French after Emmanuel Macron’s five-year term: “Everyone is still very tired after these five years, because they have been peppered with crises that have impacted everyone.” The Economist Julia Cage then analyzes the fracture between the French: “There are two Frances. There is a France which has done well during this quinquennium, and there is a France which has suffered much more throughout the quinquennium.

“A decline in interest in politics”

The journalist Anna Rosencher then looks at the feeling of the French to be neglected by their political leaders, who do not talk about them: “Political discourse, political vocabulary, (have) become totally stinging and inaudible”. For the journalist, this “marks a kind of fracture in the citizenship crisis we are experiencing”. Finally, the director of the Foundation Jean Jaurès Jérémie Peltier notes, over the past five years, “a decline in interest in politics. (…) You see that the audiences, globally, for example for political broadcasts, are less and less good”.
