Election Compass French Presidential elections
Will Nicolas Sarkozy get a second term in office or will the socialist Francois Hollande become the new president of France? Can Marine Le Pen make it to the second round, just like her father some years ago? Election Compass helps French voters decide whom to vote for in the French Presidential elections of April 22nd. Together with a team of distinguished scholars from the Parisian university SciencePo/CEVIPOF thirty straightforward statements have been developed that cover the most important issues in contemporary French politics. After answering to these policy propositions, French voters can compare their responses to the manifestos of all presidential candidates. All issue-positions of the contesting candidates can be closely examined by each user, thus helping them to make a well-informed decision on election day. The Election Compass for the French Presidential elections will be launched at the end of March.
