The Next President of France. Ready for this?

Nov 22, 2016 · 1 min read

The first round of the French Presidential election will take place on April 23 2017. The second and final round, if one is needed, is on May 7. It happens less than six months from today. Last Sunday the French Republican had their first primary. The second round is on Sunday. The field is now fairly well defined.

Commentators are calling this a fateful election for Europe. Will the political forces that gave us Brexit and the Trump Administration also bring us a France led by Marine Le Pen?

Dramatic or not, this campaign will be tracked on the Komprenio exchange. We have now introduced the five major contenders as dividis. Available for trading are dividis representing Francois Hollande, Alain Juppe, Francois Fillon, Marine Le Pen and Emanuel Macron. They all start trading at 100. In each case that reflects roughly a 20% chance of winning and holding the presidency for the full five year term.

The race is off and the surprises are piling up. It is already on the Komprenio Exchange. Some members think they see where this is heading, and have submitted their analysis.

We are building Komprenio to be your thinking-about-the-news companion, with a global outlook. The French elections will certainly be in the news over the next six months, and rightly so. Express your thoughts and commit to your insights on Komprenio.
