The French election campaign came to Geneva yesterday.

The economy minister, Bruno Le Maire, met French ex-pat voters at the Warwick Hotel to campaign for fellow Renaissance candidate Marc Ferracci who’s standing in the Sixth Overseas Constituency.

Le Maire told the 200 people in the room that it’s essential that Ferracci is re-elected to stop the extreme right wing – he admitted there’s something rotten in French democracy. 

He made some pledges to the ex-pat crowd, promising to end all double taxation between Switzerland and France.

Ferracci added that he would work to make administration easier for French nationals abroad.

France holds the second round of its parliamentary elections on Sunday.
