Thanks for your explanations. I just wanted to add 2 more figures:
- 28 % of the people didn't vote.
- 49 % of votes for Lepen are thought to be votes of contestation from
people fed up with the lack of concern from politicians.

Then again they are just figures and Lepen is on for the second round...
