Serge Halimi of Le Monde Diplomatique analysis of Macron Presidential Victory

Democracy and Class Struggle says the French Presidential Election gives us some insight into the political psychology of the French People in 2017 and the state of bourgeois democrcay.

France has 47.5 million registerted voters 20.7 million  voted for Macron 12 million did not vote at all and 4 million put in blank ballot  - 10.6 million voted for Marie Le Pen of  FN.

Macron takes 90% of the vote in bourgeois Paris but Le Pen got 56% of the workers who actually voted across France says Serge Halimi of Le Monde Diplomatique.

This result shows the work that needs to be done by French comrades in changing the political psychology and the terrain on which the class struggle is fought against Macron in the coming days, weeks and years.
