Europe: Macron Holds Onto Power

On Sunday evening, as the minutes ticked by until 8 PM, when the French polls would close and the results of the presidential election would be announced, a correspondent for the English-language service of France 24 stood outside Emmanuel Macron’s campaign headquarters and said that the 1300-odd international journalists who were gathered there exuded an “optimism” that the incumbent “has this in the bag.” And once again the French forgo an opportunity to change course…


Flipping France: Will Populism Finally Triumph In France’s Election?

✪ The result of the first round of the presidential election has confronted France with the prospect of power in the hands of Marine Le Pen, the far-right populist leader.

Seattle’s openly Marxist city councilwoman Kshama Sawant appears to have narrowly defeated an attempted recall campaign and will likely hold onto her seat.
