France is scheduled to hold its next presidential election in April 2017, with a possible run-off in May. Incumbent Francois Hollande may run again, but he has not yet committed to doing so (France 24 (3/2/16), France 24 (7/6/16)). Opinion polls so far suggest that at least a few parties' candidates could win (The Telegraph, Wikipedia). Recommended Questions Who will win Austria's upcoming presidential election?
