THE 2017 ELECTION promises to be the most disruptive presidential 
contest in France in decades. For the first time since 1962, when the 
direct election of the president was introduced, there is a good chance 
that neither the Socialist Party (PS) nor the right-wing Republicans 
(LR, successor to Charles de Gaulle’s Union pour la nouvelle République) 
will advance a candidate to the second round. Two features mark the 
novelty of the conjuncture: the collapse of the Socialists, whose wildly 
unpopular incumbent took the unprecedented decision not to stand for 
reelection, and the continuing rise of the far-right National 
Front—widely expected to make the ballot for the May 7 runoff.
