Apparently last night’s televised presidential debate was nothing of the kind. More of an omnishambles, really with both candidates sounding like schoolboys. Is this the problem with French politics both on a local and national level?

The first round of the 2012 French presidential election took place on 22 April 2012 (or 21 April in some overseas departments and territories), with a second round run-off, due to be held on 6 May 2012 (or 5 May for those same territories). The incumbent president, Nicolas Sarkozy, is running for a second successive (and, under the terms of the constitution, final) term in the election.
The first round ended with the selection of Nicolas Sarkozy and François Hollande as second round participants, as neither of them had acquired a majority in the first round.
