Best Answer

France has several political parties, but tends to be dominated by the Socialist Party (left-wing) and the Union pour un Movement Populaire (right-wing). All parties put forward a candidate in the first round of voting. The two most popular candidates from this round then face off each other in the second round, and the candidate with the majority wins.
