The NFP's unexpected triumph turned the early success of the far-right National Rally in the first round of the election on its head. But the right in France is far from defeated, and whether the NFP can hold its ground, or expand its influence from here, remains to be seen.

Elected on a strong anti-neoliberal platform, outgoing President Andrés Manuel López Obrador set the nationalization of key industries and poverty alleviation as key goals of his administratio ..read more
