Le Pen Not an Option For Melenchon

Jean-Luc Melenchon, the far left candidate who came fourth in the first round of France’s presidential election with nearly 20 percent of the vote, is polling core supporters on whether they will back centrist Emmanuel Macron in the second round.

Melenchon’s ‘France unbowed’ political movement said in a statement that none of it members would vote for far-right leader Marine Le Pen on May 7.

It said the poll would be restricted to members registered before last Sunday’s first round, and would offer three options; Choice 1. blank vote, choice 2. vote Macron, and choice 3. abstain.
