Macron Wins Re-Election in France in 2022

Question

Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron, born 21 December 1977, is a French politician serving as President of France and Co-Prince of Andorra since 2017. He previously served as Minister of the Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs from 2014 to 2016.

In the first round of Presidential Elections in 2017, Macron won 8,656,346 votes or 24.01% of the vote. In the second round, he won 20,743,128 votes or 66.10% of the vote, defeating Marine le Pen of the Front national (now Rassemblement national) in a landslide.

In the months following his election, Macron's approval rating declined significantly to below 30% and the Mouvement des gilets jaunes protest movement has risen to prominence, which has called for Macron's resignation.

Will Emmanuel Macron be re-elected as President of France in the 2022 Presidential Election?

Resolves positively if electoral officials report that Emmanuel Macron has been re-elected President of France following the conclusion of the 2022 Presidential Election.

Resolves negatively if for any reason Macron is not a candidate in that election or is not declared the winner.

Resolves ambiguously if for any reason there is no Presidential Election held in France in 2022.

This question will close retroactively 24 hours before polls open (currently scheduled for April 10, 2022) in the event that a candidate wins a majority in the first round of elections.
